    Great atmosphere. Great food! The Chimichurri Steak is excellent. Swordfish Taco is great. Blackened Chicken Fingers are THE BEST! Sides are great, too (Jambalaya Rice). Great service & reasonable $.

    Everything is good, good food and service at reasonable prices. No reservations are accepted and always busy regardless of day and time so be prepared to wait for a table.

    Absolutely the best Mexican food in town. They are always busy and have a giant line but the line moves quick and the food is worth the wait! Grab one of their awesome margaritas too!

  • Joe B.

    Favorite restaurant on Earth. Authentic Mexican and Cajun food in NJ! It's cheap to eat, around $25 per person including drinks. No dessert on the menu except birthday cake because you won't want it.

  • Dianne M.

    Awesome time with great friend!

    Dianne Modernel · July 8
  • Jorge S.

    This is the best meal there (at least thats my opinion) but the sauce is perfect and they get the type of meat you like very well and it comes with the side of either rice or French fries.

    Jorge Soto · July 5

    Better Mexican restaurants in Jersey. Good Swordfish Tacos, yummy Corn & Black Bean Empanadas, & insanely good Margaritas.

    Amazing sangria

    Stephen · March 20
  • Krystal V.

    The few vegetarian options aren't flexible. However the margaritas and chips/salsa make up for everything

    Apps: Pastelitos, Queso, Blackened Chix Fingers, and Camptown Shrimp. For entree I get blackened chix fajita. Their fries are also pretty good.

    Chel Castel · November 9, 2014
  • Jimmy K.

    This is a very good Mexican joint. It's usually crowded, but you will be happy you waited.

    Jimmy Kastner · September 5, 2014
  • 🚒🚨Scott

    Drinks are the best here food. Is awesome. Just like being in CA eating Mexican

  • Ronald P.

    Margaritas are excellent and not overpriced. The chicken Guadalajara is my favorite but never had a bad experience with anything else on the menu. Been coming here for 20 years and still love it.

    Ronald Park · August 19, 2014
  • Thomas G.

    It was fine. Nothing special, everyone talks this place up but it was only ok.

    Thomas Guttilla · August 11, 2014
  • Myles M.

    Great chips & salsa. Margaritas are a must

    Myles MacRae · August 11, 2014
  • Tim T.

    It's kind of like Chevy's. Tex-Mex, good margaritas, tasty and fresh tortilla chips. Good vegetarian options on the back of the menu. The empanadas were good.

    Tim Trautmann · August 9, 2014
  • Nicky P.

    The blackened chicken fajitas are amazing! Not to mention the endless chips and salsa

    Nicky Petroni · August 9, 2014
  • Tom M.

    Can't go wrong with the empanadas -- fresh and crispy, oh so good

    Tom M. · August 6, 2014
  • Lorraine E.

    One of my favorite place

    Lorraine Eaford · August 4, 2014
  • Melissa O.

    It's OK as an alternative to chains like Chevy's or Chili's, but be prepared to wait for an irrationally long time no matter when you go.

    Melissa Olund · August 3, 2014
  • Kyle M.

    If you want to be sick the next day from the food go ahead. Very expensive booze considering it's location

    Kyle McSpedon · July 22, 2014
  • Aalia R.

    Be prepared to wait. There's ALWAYS a wait.

    Aalia R. · July 19, 2014
  • Brooks D.

    Really good margs. Not worth the wait in my opinion. Food was pretty good for the price but it's not great.

    Brooks Doyne · July 18, 2014
  • Nayha S.

    Slowest service in the world but at least the margs are decent

    Nayha Srivastava · July 18, 2014
  • Onezumi H.

    Call from car. 10 min wait. 30 seconds later put name in. 20 min later they say I have an hour wait. At least the front staff is consistently a bunch of jackass.

    Onezumi Hartstein · July 8, 2014
  • DJ Insomnia

    You can't beat the blackened chicken fajitas! Make sure you show up an hour early, the wait is loooooong!

    DJ Insomnia · July 7, 2014
  • Neal P.

    Always go with one other person at least. Long wait time but it's worth it.

    Neal Patel · July 4, 2014
  • Nina L.

    It's 100 degrees in here during the summer. Avoid on super hot days.
