Usually, cheese and spinach come already mixed in a sauce in the Pollo Espinaca dish in other Mexican restaurants, but I was pleased I could get the spinach without the cheese. The food presentation was good and the atmosphere was great.

This Mexican restaurant is so authentic, the waitresses barely speak English! Be prepared to receive the wrong order. If you need any substitutions or additions, I recommend showing pictures of what you want because trying to explain it will only get you blank stares and incorrect food. This place used to be a staple, I'd go every other week with a friend for the last 5 years. It was our ritual. But our last five times have been consistently terrible. Not just the food, but I haven't been able to get a refill for my drinks either because the waitresses are too busy on their cell phones or gossiping with eachother. I've literally had to get up out of my seat and hunt them down for a refill just so I can continue eating my meal because I already waited 10 with an empty cup. And it's not like this place is ever very busy, so I don't understand why it's so difficult to wait on your customers. What a shame.

Couldn't figure out what to order. Everything looked so good. Had the waitress surprise me. 10/10 No Ragrets!

Ordered salad and a dish. Very yummy. For leftover, the waiter brought a nice neat aluminum container. Love it. Great atmosphere. Plenty of parking lots.

Food is hit or miss. When it's good ..it's good and when it's not.. it's not. This place used to be amazing but like so many others...things have gone downhill. I would go back and hopefully catch them on the good day.

The food never disappoints! They serve big portions, the waitresses was attentive, kept bringing refills, asking is everything was okay.

My friend turned me on to this place. I didn't know what to expect, but I was definitely impressed. The foid was amazing! Especially the rice and beans ( I love rice and beans). And the dish I chose was hands down delicious 😋 Check out the pics, I promise it’s as good as it looks! Enjoyed!

The food was excellent...reminded me of my grandma's food. My sister in-law told us the food was good so we went here while visiting from Michigan...but it was beyond good.

This place was great! Food was very good. We go to the other one in North Durham and this is 10x's better. Worth the drive! Delicious!

The drinks were good, the food was good and the service was good. Not often do I get to say that. My only thing was there was no lively music. I'm used to a Spanish vibe but other than that I enjoyed

Great food, service is usually good, very nice atmosphere. If you're lucky enough to have Danielle as a server, you will be wowed. Once food is ordered, it usually takes 10 minutes of waiting at table, then num num. Afterwards, it may be siesta time once you get home.
