    The exterior decor is an enchanting and rustic facade that resembles a mysterious Mexican village. Inside was packed at lunch! Anything Tex Mex is a solid choice here. Try the brisket tacos!

    Excellent best Tex Mex restaurante I've ever been. Fresh and tasty food. Loved it. Definitely it's a place to come back in the future.

    I asked for a pickle and pimento load sandwich and they gave me a lobster enchilada, a bar of salsa soap and a handshake- wonder what I'd get if whistled Dixie?

    There has to be a reason to brave these lines--even on a particularly crummy Saturday afternoon--and it's the fajita plates, big enough to choke a Chihuahua. Read more

    The food is amazing, but our waiter was the star of the show. Bret is The Best Waiter I've ever had IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. Ask for him, a sangria and beef fajitas. You will not be sorry!

    Pretty good texmex, but it is not Mexican food-- also, underwhelming service. So my tip is: don't expect totally Mexican food, and don't expect to be whelmed by service. No whelming happens here.
