    Great prices and great food that comes very quickly. Highly recommended. Wait time if you come during a busy period (ex. Friday/Saturday night), but nothing unreasonable.

    The best Fajitas, beef burro, and Campton shrimp on the US. I love this resturant. I used to go their branch in Delaware. They are really professional. It's my favorite restaurant ever.

    Very good food! Not the best service though. Waitress was very unprofessional. Manager was a sweetheart! Not sure if I'd try again.

    I have been eating at the one in Woodbridge since the early 90s. I was so happy when I found this one with the same food and less wait times.

    Pretty much always a wait for a dinner table but it goes by quickly. The quesadillas are ginourmous, definitely a full meal from the appetizer menu.

    Make sure you come early because the wait is always insane, but totally worth it. Try the chimichurri steak!!

    Terrible. First they bring me the wrong dish, then they bring me the right one, burnt. My whole lunch hour was spent waiting on my food.. But the frozen margarita Grande was good...

    My go-to place for Mexican. Always packed but always great. The house salad is ginormous!

    Food was not up to par, I thought it would be really good since the place is always packed but what I got was a plate of greasy pulled beef enchilada. I would rather eat at chipotle. Disappointed.

    Love the gumbo. Great loaded fajitas. Jambalaya is very good. Best brewed iced tea around. Hot fresh salty chips and salsa. Camptown shrimp. You can't go wrong up and down the menu

    Cajun burger just Make to tell the waiter that you want it medium well done or you'll get if medium rare

    Great food that's very affordably priced. The blackened chicken caesar salad is the best. Plus they start you with fresh warm nachos and salsa. I like to add the Pastelitos as an appetizer.

    Burro, tostada grande, Route 66, tejas chicken, guac & salsa & blue cheese dressing. Everything on the menu is amazing besides the eggplant!!

    Everything is delicious, particularly anything blackened. The Route 66 chopped salad is great for a lighter meal

    They can't make separate checks, so just split the bill at the end

    Most servers here are excellent. One dude is horrible. Despite repeated requests, he wouldn't clean the food off the table from the prior party. No way we could stay in such a filthy environment.

    Nice atmosphere. The food wasn't too bad either, however they need to learn how to make a Bloody Mary though behind the bar

    If the place seems packed, try to get a spot at the bar or one of the cocktail area tables. You can still order food and won't have to deal with the wait.

    If you're getting a salad, ask for the Chipotle Lime sauce as a dressing.

    They forgot to bring out an appetizer and instead sent out our entrees. Besides that, overall OK. I must say the Chips are pretty good.

    There's nothing bad on the menu here, but my favorites have got to be the fajitas and Louisiana Chicken.

    Unusual vegetables in the veggie fajitas, but still delicious! No meal is complete without a margarita or Dos Equis.

    They took the fried plantains off the menu and replaced them with fries - a travesty.

    Great place to take the family for some great, cheap eats. Many times my kids order off the regular menu and they still give them candy at the end!

    Someone needs to move this pin - it's on the complete WRONG side of 46, and needs to move an inch to the left as well!
