    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.

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

    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!

    The fajitas here are a filling meal…two plates worth!

    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

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

    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.

    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

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

    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

    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.

    I would eat anywhere else in the airport before I would eat here again. This includes food I found in the restroom. Bad food and service.

    Worse service ever. If I were the owner of this company I would fire all management. Your hostess Mickey was the most unfriendly person I have ever met. Never once did she smile.
