Good, reliable and consistent food and service. Love their vegetarian dishes, and their salsa is always super fresh and chunky. Guacamole is tasty and so are their margaritas! The chicken soup is also one of my favorites. Food : 4/5 | Service : 5/5 | Atmosphere : 4/5 Recommended dishes Veggie Nachos, Guacamole, Bag of Chips and Salsa, Chicken Soup … More

Everyone always shows you how pretty a plate looks. I wanted to show you how good everything was. If you go here, you'll clean your plate too. The food was so good that I get to nit pick. A little too much chili powder in the tamale and the Margherita was a little too sweet. That's it, that's all I can complain about because it was that good. AND THAT CHEESE! I swear they shredded the cheese over the top of my food because it was so fresh, smooth and flavorful. From the chips & salsa to the refried beans, this was amazing!

Best Texmex I've found in the Birmingham area! I came from Texas where there's a high bar set on Mexican food,.and this place pleasantly surprised me. The enchiladas, burritos, & fajitas are all top-notch! I always get one of their combo platters, which are very reasonably priced...but another fave is the quesadilla dinner. It's got their delicious cheese sauce poured over it. MMM The staff is super friendly & it's got a nice, cozy feel to the dining room. The prices are pretty reasonable too. Highly recommend! Get a pitcher of margaritas if you go
