From November 2004

This popular Tex-Mex restaurant, which has five other locations around the area, must be doing something right, because it's almost always full. It's not the margaritas, which are too sweet. It's not the guacamole, which has the slick texture of avocados mashed a while ago. It's not the chicken fajitas, charred to cinders. The beef fajitas were better, the beef enchilada fine, and the chiles rellenos a bit greasy but with good cheese-and-chile flavor. The quantities are large, the prices are low.
