The steak and shrimp were disappointingly good, with rice that tasted like can beans while my sisters were a bit dry. I also had mediocre quality steak, which taste was mild and dark in color. The chips and salsa on the table were not spicy enough, and the staff was polite to help me order some spicy sauce.

We have been visiting the bar area today and Megan has been a great hostess. She always makes requests for tacos and is very friendly. Our trip never disappoints!

I visited to meet my close friends and she was very helpful and pleasant when we were there. The food was delicious and the staff and manager were always available during our visit, making it a great experience! We would highly recommend this establishment to anyone who has never been to one before.

I'm a big fan of Mexican food and on thursday, my former colleagues invited me to try their delicious meals. The cantina area was empty during our visit, but we still managed to enjoy some tasty dishes. My favorite tacos were the mini steak taccos with 4 beans, which came out in front of me, unlike other tacto options that I had never tried before.

Having dined with my friend at this establishment, I can honestly say that the service she provided was exceptional. She went above and beyond to make sure our experience was pleasant, while also being knowledgeable about the food and serving options. Our server ensured we were served hot and cold drinks and left our plates sparkling clean.

Inez exceeded our expectations by ensuring that our meals were always served promptly and with great flavor and taste. We also enjoyed the delicious but not spicy, egg-shaped pancakes made with eggs at 8$ breakfast. I would highly recommend this breakfast to anyone.

The restaurant's enchiladas were more appetizing than the other location, and they came early. I appreciated their attentive and friendly staff, the fact that it took some time to prepare an impressive omelette, excellent quality, clean orange juice, decent food (although not cold), and the small restaurant overall. My family would definitely return to this place.

I'm back in the States after a busy week of traveling, and I was thrilled to finally meet my new loved one! The atmosphere is truly amazing at this place. It feels like dinner is being served right outside our door. Thank you so much for coming here!!!!!!!!!!!

After a disappointing dinner the previous week, Carlos C. and Mr. Brittany were on hand to make our party of 4 unforgettable! We couldn't be happier with the food we had brought along. The margaritas, platter, macho combo, spinach enchiladas, table-side guac, flan, and mud pie all came together perfectly, thanks to sergio's attentiveness. Our party was an absolute pleasure, even featuring great food.

Despite working at this establishment for years, we have had to deal with unpleasant consequences such as a lack of cleanliness and fly infestations. The server refused to take our orders and apologized after the manager offered forgiveness. I was deeply disappointed by the staff's treatment of our meal during our stay.
