This was my first visit here. The food was good and the pricing was only slightly higher than it should have been. However, their policies angered me. I ordered Fajitas and left off almost all the side items - no beans, no rice, no Pico,...More

We spent the day at Volcano Bay and I was craving Mexican something fierce. Everything was delicious. They have REAL Mexican food, not just Americanized Mexican. Food and service was great. Hubby got a torta and I had carne Asada.
