    $5 margaritas on Wednesdays! The sampler appetizer plate is big enough to share with four people. Warm and friendly staff made us feel like regulars on our first visit.

    The jalapeño poppers are an excellent appetizer! Margaritas are only $3.50 for happy hour 5-7. Chicken Itza is fabulous!

    The tacos are great, especially with the chinichurri. Also the ceviche is good and big enough to be a meal for one if you aren't that hungry

    I love their world famous frozen margarita! One of the best place to get Tex-Mex in Dallas.

    The chicken flautas were okay. They only came with two but they were cut in half so you really didn't get a whole lot of food. The dipping sauce was pretty good!! The hot sauce was CRAZY HOT! Beware!!

    While you can get the Desperado Tacos for less than six bucks after 5PM on Thursdays, you can get a half order anytime for five bucks.

    Tried the lunch tacos, were really dry and tasteless. The place inside was dark and gloomy as the ceilings are really low. Would be 5/10 for me

    Don't order take out unless you want them to forget part of your order and then make it hard on you to get your money back!

    Fajitas are solid. Stay away from the $2 ritas. Too sugary.
