Anthony K., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Sept. 27, wrote, "Wonderful food, thanks for keeping the Tex Mex. We love the gold margaritas, the stuffed avocado and the best appetizer is the family appetizer.... Well, we'll be coming back for many years!"

Yelper Cam Van N. added, "This is my new favorite fajita place! Everyone gets their own side of pico/guac/sour cream. Love the large portions and the fact that the meat comes out sizzling hot and stays that way until the very last bite...Make sure to try the fresh margarita on tap as well!"
