Reviews

They bent over backwards to help me with a food allergy. You can tell how great a restaurant is by how free and willing the chef is to help with odd situations. The wait staff were all very helpful and attentive. The place has a great atmosphere and yes, the food was perfect. Try the grits!

The staff are always friendly and it's a clean place to eat or have a few drinks. The cheese grits have a well deserved reputation. I love this place.

Great service from Caroline and very tasty food.  The "Three Amigos" dip was fantastic!! Burritos were good and the Fajita Salad was great too....I had the Carnitas which were tasty but would rather have them left as chunks instead of all shredded up.  A must if you are in the area.

The El Diablo Chicken is awesome if you like spicy Mexican food. I recommend getting the three cheese dip as the appetizer because it's a better deal if you want to make some quick tacos and have cheese dips for the chips.

I can say that I do not believe I have had a better Mexican meal anywhere!!! I got the shrimp fajitas that were cooked inside a pineapple with grilled pineapple chunks mixed in. DELICIOUS!!! The chips were light and tasty with the complimentary salsa! Yummy!!! First time here and won't be the last!!!

Excellent Fish Tacos
We have eaten here multiple times and get the same thing. I get the Fish Taco and my wife gets the shrimp Taco. At first they were so good and fresh using just the right amount to leave you pleasantly satisfied. The past couple of times though they are getting sloppy and over loading the tortilla with sauce as well as the other condi ... read more

The food was great but I was not overly impressed with the wait staff. She didn't check to see if we wanted our drinks refilled or anything. I would have rated higher but the wait staff was not impressive especially with it not being busy.

Great guacamole
I came into town craving guacamole. My mom and I ate here and it definitely hit the spot! I could've just eaten the queso and guacamole...which I went back the next day and did just that! The chile relleno wasn't great, too hard to eat. But the chips are hot and fresh, salsa and all other dips I've tried are worth a trip!

Got there about 11:15 and were immediately seated. Our waitress seemed to have about 3/4 of the restaurant as we rarely saw her after the food finally came.

We stopped in on a Tuesday coming from the airport. It was packed with people for the 99 cent margarita night. We were seated quickly and although it seemed chaotic, the the service was good and the margaritas were a surprise for 99 cents. Fun place!

Great restaurant, been here 5-6 times now and I've yet to have anything bad. Good server, very prompt. The host/hostess staff is a little awkward.
