No seasoning AT ALL in our orders with the exception of the nachos and tortilla chips. Our order of margaritas was limited because the fruits were unavailable Finally there was no guacamole! How do u have a Mexican restaurant without guac??? Will not be back.

It’s good to go for a one time try, especially if you live far away. Chips and salsa were good. I felt the margaritas were overpriced for the size. The margarita flight was not available and it appears that the flavors are preselected for the flight. I felt the tacos had no flavor to them. The most flavor came from the pickled red onions. Overall it was good but not enough for me to go back.

The servers walked passed us atleast 3 times and didn't make eye contact with us or anything!

I got the Pollo Rojo tacos, and it didnt fit the description, was pretty disappointed. We drove an hour for this place that was great 2 years ago when we tried it.

Everything from the guacamole we ordered to accompany the chips that are complimentary to the main entrees was very under-seasoned and lacking in flavor.

The Nashville hot taco was fire! Needs to be on the menu all the time! Queso and chips were very good. Friendly and efficient service. Highly recommend.

We took some friends/family there for dinner. It was packed (no biggie as we made reservations) but it did add to the noise level…to be expected at dinner. Brisket tacos were ok..one person described it as tasting like roast meat bot brisket. The Nashville hot tacos were freakin killer though. One person (very picky eater with a narrow list of acceptable food options ordered a burger w/fries. Fries were good, burger looked basic and well done. I personally enjoyed our visit, but the food could have been as good as it was the first time i went there. We enjoyed the visit overall and will definitely be back

But that can be expected with current times. However being accused of dinning and dashing after paying the bill and tipping on the QR code option was a new and unexpected experience.

We came for my girlfriends birthday. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. She was the best part of our visit. I ordered the margarita flight. They were decent, but if you see the pic of the flight, the garnishes didn't seem to make sense. The chips had no salt. I ordered the carne asada tacos and added avocado. The meal comes with beans anne rice. The beans were AWFUL. They came cold and dried out. They tasted watery...which I don't understand how that's possible. Had to add a bunch of salt and mixed in the salsa as well to make them edible. The rice was bland and dried out and cold. The avocado was turning, the meat was really hard to chew. The tortillas almost seemed more like pita bread than tortillas and had a weird aftertaste. We had a table behind us that was super loud. I couldn't even hear the other people at my table because they were so loud. Normally I wouldn't blame this on the restaurant, but I switched to the other side the table baccarat they were giving me a headache and realized that it was actually 2 tables next to each other with their server in between-basically facilitating the noise. I'll find with people having fun, but they were right next to each other and SCREAMING unreasonably across the 2 for space between their tables whole I couldn't even hear my friend next to me. We thought that maybe their server was off the clock because she spent so much time socializing with them, but then we saw her taking their plates and filling their waters. We would have gotten dessert, but couldn't bear to sit another minute there. So, maybe I'll come back for margaritas at some point, but that's about it.

Unfortunately they were out of a lot of stuff but they still had their brisket tacos which are amazing. The drinks we all got were really good. We ordered guacamole, queso, and street corn as appetizers- the guac was very bland and the “street corn” was a small charred corn on the cob with barely any cheese on it. Would come again for drinks and tacos only.

Welp.. tried it and our whole table was disappointed with their food. Everything was bland and dry. They were out of the mexican corn. It was mentioned that there was new kitchen staff so maybe that had something to do with it. I always say, you have to try it for yourself. Maybe it was just a bad day.

Did not get food until after 6. The food was horribly dry and disgusting. Got to watch multiple tables seated and served full meals. Not sure what we did to warrant such service and to be treated so poorly. Never coming back here, ever again. The giant ice cream milk shake stack is a joke. The “churro” was like eating old expired cinnamon sand. You know it’s bad when your waiter starts comping drinks and food without being asked.

Service was good and attentive.

I had been one prior time and only had the wings, which I should have gotten this time as well. I ventured to have tacos at a taco place and was solely disappointed. My 12 year old that eats everything couldn’t eat the tacos because they were so salty it was crazy. My tacos had no flavor and were cold. My partner enjoyed his burrito though.
