Jalapeno margarita was on point! I had the Cancun burrito, and it filled me up nicely. Service was great - I got asked... twice for my drink order while they were making my drink. Everyone's eager to help!read more

Very good food and service. We had been several times at their old location, and food was great but the place was... extremely small ... Their new location is very good (probably they tripled their previous location size. And the food and service continue to be excellent.read more

Good service, good flavor on the food. Fajitas had good flavor and you get a lot of food. Burrito also good. Would... give it a 5, but the tacos you can only get one kind per order (3 tacos in one order). Would be great if you could choose a different meat on each taco for variety. Oh well, I went with the fajita instead and it did not disappoint.read more

The place is nicely decorated.I did not like that they charge for chips and salsa...in Texas that is a given for every... table.I had to change my original review after a subsequent visit... Was way disappointed by the fare this time...the guacamole that was brought to me with my fajitas was a freaking joke...Watery, brownish---clearly old and bordering on being spoiled.When I pointed this out to the waiter, his response was, "Oh, when it gets old it turns a little brown..." That's it, no offer to replace it with fresh stuff or anything! The offer was for some sour cream instead... Boo!Also, they ask about your tortilla choices and if you pick flour, be prepared to be charged for that... ridiculous man... Especially since they are clearly store-bought and not homemade!Taking this place off of my list.read more

Went for lunch today and it was delicious!! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, they seemed happy to be... there. The new location is so nice and cozy. The parking is a little confusing but it’s worth it. We got a steak quesadilla and steak tacos (Mexican style) and the hot sauces were great. We ordered to go and it was really fast and easy. We will we back!read more

It was an ok Mexican restaurant. Not great, but not bad. The inside is really cute, but small (even at the new... location). The menu is not as extensive as some Mexican restaurants, but still decent. The prices are a little higher than what I'm used to seeing at a Mexican place, and you get one basket of chips and salsa for free for your table, not unlimited like some places,and I think that the menu said that was only during certain hours that you get the one free. I'm from Indiana, and I've yet to find a really great Mexican place here in Frederick.read more

15min wait...I ordered fajitas, they brought me a burrito. My fiance finished her meal by the time my "fajitas " came... which looked like shredded meat and not fajita. Also it was supposed to be chicken and steak but they brought 90% chicken (guessing due to time it takes to cook) and 10% steak. The dark pieces are burnt dry chicken... Not going back. Food was meh but uncle Julio is much betterread more
