Eat here about once a week, sometimes more. The food is great, servers are friendly :) and prices are good too....can't beat that! Shredded beef chimi is yummo!

I love this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and fast.

its in the strip mall across from walmart on 8th street

My favorite are the fajitas (served huge with a side plate of rice, beans and veggies) or the Guadalajara special (a mix of chicken and shrimp with onions and green bell peppers ontop of rice topped with cheese sauce) a crazy combination of great taste. The Pollo loco is fabulous too (chicken brest split in half and made really thin and tender topped with sauteed onions and cheese sauce served rice beans veggies and tortillas) i believe the dinner size comes with two pieces of chicken instead of one.

My husband always gets the #7 which is a chile relleno and enchilada with rice and beans and/or chicken soup

the two of us can eat there with something to drink, tips, and a coffee afterwords for about $20-25. very good seeing as the next closest mexican restaurant costs 30 to 35 for the same amounth of food!

definately worth your time and you can never get bored with their menu and the friendly atmosphere

Pros: great food, even better price

Cons: very busy on the weekends

My family can afford to go here on a budget. They serve as much chips and salsa as you want, without dragging their feet like some bigger chains. But many times you don't have time to get through even one basket because they bring your food so quick. The price is also awesome as well if you order off the a la carte or combo parts of the menu, otherwise it's about the same as a chain. Their waiters can take orders both in english and in spanish (my hispanic husband makes me order in spanish, and the waiters put up with my mangling the language and still understand me). I would recommend this place to people who want to eat out but can't afford a chain. If you know how to order correctly, you can feed a family of four well, with drinks and tip for about $30.

Seriously....

Asked for Pollo Loco with no onions. Comes back chock full of onions. Send it back. Comes back, notice the "chicken breast" was about a thin a McDonald's burger patty. Not the only time I've asked for something omitted from an order only to have it on there when it arrives.

This place offers good Mexican food fast. The chips and salsa are good and you get plenty of them. They offer take out as well. The prices are reasonable too. The restaurant is located in a strip mall by Target and Wamart. The people working there are very friendly and efficient.
