    The people that rave about how good the food is must have been paid to leave those reviews or they are friends of the owner. Seriously, you would more enjoy a frozen microwave burrito from the store.

    Pretty generic. The salsa in the chips and salsa is just canned stewed tomatoes with some chili peppers so don't waste your money

    I witness management being rude to a customer with a complaint about their food. Not a friendly atmosphere and it feels dirty. Something is off with this place

    unfriendly staff, food taste like a frozen dinner, bathrooms dirty. Long story short I will never spend my money here again, Birmingham has far superior restaurants.

    worst eatery ever. staff is rude, place was empty, dark and dingy. The food was not good. I do not understand how this place can keep their doors open.

    Ordered cheese quesadilla and it was pretty good. Get it without onions because otherwise it's super greasy...

    taco Tuesday is a joke, bad food and the drinks are watered down. I saw the bartender pick her nose and that was the final straw. We got out of there and will NEVER go back.

    The Worst Service I Have Ever Had. Forgot our orders, did not refresh our beverages and the food was cold by the time we got it....but the worst was the attitude!!! Horrible experience.

    Food isn't that great and the service is lousy. Don't think I'll be back. Better food can be had just down the street @ Camp Taco.

    Willing to bet all the bad servise comments are from people that sat themselves instead of reading the signs that say come inside and wait to be seated.

    Ordered the Steak Tacos, which taste really good, but there are only two of them & it took a really long time. 4/5 for taste, 2/5 for time, 2/5 for cost.
