Fodor's Review

Like its other Front Range brethren, the Fort Collins branch of this six-location chain always satisfies, with old favorites such as tacos, quesadillas, burritos, flame-broiled Yucatan shrimp, and fajita steak dishes, as well as spicier Tex-Mex fare such as camarones diabla (shrimp with chile de árbol). This spacious restaurant with old storefront windows draws mostly casual diners out for a wonderful, relaxed dinner.

Tasty but Nothing Special

Solid basic Mexican fare and freshmade salsa are welcome in this inviting Mexican restaurant with beautiful handpainted chairs and colorful decor. The waitstaff was efficent but not spectacular and the food solid but unexciting and needed more spice. Good place for families or for those looking for some top-shelf tequila.
