    JC is an excellent waiter. Salsa is spicy and good. Chili con queso is not cheese at all but still really tasty. Kim Crawford Sav blanc in 9oz is the best and you can take your wine in a to-go cup!

    Great service, delicious fajitas (got chicken and steak for no additional charge with the Baha veggies. Yum!). Would stop here again if I'm back in Orlando!

    One of the only places that I've found that actually asks what time your flight leaves! I love places that will let me know I don't have time to eat at their establishment!!

    Loved it. Drove from Tampa just to eat here, and found out that the place was inside the terminal. BUT, the manager Jeff Contrucci came out and took our order and brought us our food. AWESOME PLACE!!

    Only two tables here with access to power outlets. One is straight back from the server stand. The other is to the far right wall. Ask the servers to be seated nearby; maybe the occupant is friendly

    We had great, fast service from Danny, & our food (Tex-Mex more than Mexican) was great. Try the Chicken Salsa Fresco (it's SPICY!), & don't waste your $5.49 on the guac.

    House margarita is 10 bucks! Expensive and tastes like Chili's $6 house. Must be the airport. But, they do ask you about your flight times. That's a considerate gesture!

    Really decent and authentic for being at the airport. Great view. Get the empanadas appetizer...great!

    Sit at the bar and enjoy the draft selection and the tequila selection though I would stay away from the food if you are wanting real Mexican.

    Cesar salad (with steak rather than chicken) is delicious! Very satisfying before a long flight.

    Breakfast burrito (egg potato) wasn't too bad but you definitely need to add guac or pico or something

    Get the Milagro Agave Rita margarita. One of the best I've had. Anywhere.

    I expected Pace salsa, I was pleasantly surprised with both taste and heat. My server (Andrew) was a rock star server.

    Breakfast burrito was good - love that everything is cooked to order - no microwaved rubbery eggs here!!

    The Shaken Margarita is the way to go. Decent guacamole too.

    Food is delicious but caution, service is super slow at a table. If you have less than an hour until boarding try the bar.

    There's plastic silverware because of airport regulations - not by the restaurants choice so calm those horses.

    note:: kitchen closes early!! Got here at 8:20 and the kitchen and dining room was closed. Irritating as it is the only restaurant in the place

    1/2 hostesses was nice, the other incredibly rude. Server was great, guac wasn't worth the $5.50. Can't really call it a Mexican place; they sell french fries.

    Even with a $15 margarita, chips and salsa were $6. At least they were salty though because the rim of my glass had maybe 3 licks worth. Painfully slow service. Ruby Tuesday in Terminal B is better

    9 bucks for 6 oz of middling Chardonnay. Oh, the fruit flies all around the bar are a lovely treat...

    Not very attentive service. When neither the tables nor bar have been bussed and you aren't acknowledged in the first 5 min of sitting at the bar there's a problem.

    Fantastic staff unfortunately that is the best part. Food was mediocre and the portions terrible for the price. Plastic silverware at a sit down place really. In short don't eat here.

    Horrible service at the bar by kara. Asked if I could change my order right after she came back from bringing it to the kitchen and said it was to late. Ha to ask for fork and knife.
