    The happy hour sucks. $1 margaritas have no alcohol whatsoever ever! You do get chips and bean dip, but plan on enjoying the chips and bean dip with "lemonade".

    Service sucked. Told the waiter our drinks were way too strong and instead of taking it off our bill he made "lighter" drinks =/ Our first sip was pure tequila. They got a $4 tip for a $45 bill.

    This place gets good reviews but I was underwhelmed. The food was bland. The chicken enchiladas seemed like the chicken was boiled in water and not drained. Bland heavy. Not good.

    Food was a little dry, but I can tell it's a super popular place to eat.

    Get the carne asada sopes. Ask for some green salsa on the side. You're welcome. :)

    I like the menudo and the tacos de lengua. I suppose if you are looking for the standard fare there are places that are better, but for the non standard. This is great.

    I got food poisoning here tonight, service was very poor and my bill was incorrect (more than $10 higher than it should have been). I did not like it at all :(

    This place is amazing!!! Great food, fast service! AND they do not nickel and dime, most/all meals and plates come with sour cream, guacamole, rice and beans...which at most place is $1 extra each!

    Past tipsters are on crack. This is probably the best "Colorado" Mex food 4 $$ (which I don't think is great to begin with - go to AZ 4 REAL!). Plus, can't go wrong with $3 Margs all day, every day!!

    Service is horrible, food is mediocre at best, and it's way overpriced. Go to taco bell if you want quality better than this.

    Service is kinda bad & they nickel & dime you. I asked for lettuce for my fajitas and was charged for it.

    Request a table, some of the booths get cramped. Enjoy!
