    Spicy green enchiladas are fantastic! Loved the bean dipping sauce instead of salsa.

    Worst Mexican food I've ever had. Save the trip and go to Taco Bell. Papas is gross

    Its an average Mexican food spot, more like a Mexican diner. I ordered coffee but it tastes like tea. Had steak and shrimp, was a bit overdone.

    Host was rude. Bean dip was awesome. Food came out quickly. Potions huge, food good, but meat sucked. Service was good but host stood awkwardly near our table and stared.

    Large portions and great vegetarian options. They fill up quickly in the evenings so be prepared for a minimum 10-15 min wait. However food does arrive quickly.

    We had better expectations, the food was bland. Coming from El Paso, TX could be a factor though.

    Excellent , authentic Mexican food. Had the molcajetes platter. So good! Huge serving, more than I could eat, and definitely spicy. Ordered a margarita, and it was so big my husband and I shared it.

    For a healthy option that won't break the bank, try the warm fajita salad.

    Do not bother. Sub par and bland for Mexican with drinks I swear had no hootch. Also our server left her shift without telling anyone. Tip - don't go.

    asked for the bathroom in Spanish (?El Bano, Por Favor?) and the response was a loving, fluent response in Spanish. I really have to learn more words in Spanish!
