If you "can't be sitting oceanside in Mexico" , this chainlet is the "next best thing" say fans cheering the "delicious" Mexican fare and "top-shelf margaritas" ; they can get "crowded" (the French Quarter original has a "quaint patio" too), and otherwise solid service can "seem overwhelmed" when "busy" , but "reasonable prices" help distract.

Great food, free chips and salsa, generous portions and a helpful staff. They recently added more parking making it easier to go to during peak hours. Always a solid choice for a great meal

Price was too high for the food you get. The menu had lots of "options" that were really just additions you had to pay for. For example, if you want cheese or anything added to your taco, it is 50 cents extra per add on. The food was good but not anything memorable to be honest. I've had better at less expensive mexican restaurants. On a good note, their margaritas were unique and tasty.

I like going here, good chips and salsa, and I love the enchiladas. Fast and Friendly service.
