                                Ridiculous amount of time were wasted when we were here and we never really regretted any minute of it. The fun starts when the bar opens.

                                Had to come back and edit this review. They have really taken a turn for the worse. My wife ordered the Big Borderito...and it came out in less than 2 minutes... no joke. It was also cold! Obviously, they just grabbed a burrito that someone returned and sent it our way. We also ordered tacos and they came out so soggy that they fell apart. The issue with the tacos happened at least 4 times between my first review and now. It's a shame because I really liked this place, but I won't be coming back any time soon.

                                -----------2006---------------------------------------------------------I've only tried two chain mexican restaurants and have been satisfied with both(the other being Chevy's) It is true that they are not quite as tasty as some of the more authentic mexican restaurants, but the food is definitely not bad. The tacos are loaded with meat, the chicken enchiladas are tasty, and who doesn't like chips and salsa? If you want authentic Mexican food...take a trip to Cancun or Cozumel and you may try some. If you want cheap mexican cuisine and excellent margaritas, come here.

                                Pros: Quick Seating, Good food on occassion

                                Cons: Parking, Lack of consistency in Service and quality

                                .

                                If you're looking for a cool place to go have a couple of beers, munch on some chips with "salsa" and just have an average "mexican" dinner, this is your place.
                                However, if you like the authentic tasty mexican food, you're better off driving a few more miles and going to any taqueria in homestead... They're just like Chevy's or any other americanized mexican food. Oh, and get ready to wait on line.

                                I've tried this place on several occasions hoping for satisfaction and I must say that I gave up. On every visit, food was bland and seemed to be right out of the microwave. Service was nothing to brag about and most visits were not during peak hours. For this place to be considered #1 makes it obvious most folks in South Florida have never tasted real authentic Mexican cuisine.

                                This was a great disappointment. I'd always driven by to see its outdoor patio packed with people. Now I wonder why!! The food is mediocre at best--your typical suburban chain restaurant fare--and overpriced. Drinks are not much better, although they do have a decent beer selection. This restaurant is crammed into a strip mall with another popular chain restaurant, clothing stores, a diner, a Chuckie Cheese, so plan on paying for valet parking!!!

                                Every day at 8 a.m., we start chopping veggies, soaking beans, and prepping our mesquite-fired grill. Not because we have to, but because we believe in delicious flavors made-to-order, from hand-rolled enchiladas to our sizzling fajitas to guacamole made right at your table. Everything pairs nicely with a grande margarita, and of course, enjoy the always endless chips and salsa.
