Mediocre Mexican Food – Still in search of a good Mexican restaurant in this area. I'd read good reviews of this place on McKnight Rd so I thought I'd drop in for lunch. Cutesy decor, good service, good beer, good chips. The absolute worst chile relleno I've ever had in my life. It was barely discernible from the beans on the same plate. I think someone either microwaved it too long or put it under too hot a broiler and the coating and pepper disintegrated. Makes me not want to try it again, but all the positive reviews may win out and I'll give it another shot.
Best Mexican food in the 'burgh – My wife and I are recent transplants from Texas, and we have been looking for good Mexican food since we got here. So far we'd pick this place as the most authentic that we've found. They have plenty of choices on the menu with all the Tex/Mex standards, and everything we tried was quite good. The tacos were crispy, the beef was well seasoned, and all the sauces went well with the dish it was paired to. They had good drink specials too if you are a beer drinker.
Don't be put off by their inauspicious strip mall location - it may not be fancy or the kind of place you go for a big celebration, but it is well worth the visit for the quality of food and great price!
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Traditional south of the border recipes fill the menu at the family-friendly restaurant that serves burritos, nachos and reasonable prices.
Highly recommended – Great mexican food in a very casual atmosphere. Huge portions for less than you'd spend at a mexican "chain" restaurant...and tastes better, too.
Very Good Food – great service, staff is wonderful fodd is absouletly wonerful ! I give the a 10
