The food here was very tasty, and we usually have good service here, but after we said we needed just another minute to decide, our server worked another table for 20 mins, as well as played on her phone, before coming back to take our order. Someone else refilled our drinks, and brought our food. She brought us the check... More

Always good food and excellent service. My wife always gets the pollo fundido. I have had cape hatteras, tres Jimadores and jarocha. All 3 are very good but the Jarocha is the best. This place is the best Mexican restaurant in Anderson and better than any we have tried in Greenville. Best service of any type restaurant in the area.

This Mexican restaurant is one of many in Anderson, but it is the BEST! We love that there is a smaller plates menu instead of having to order entrees with such enormous servings. The food is always good, the service fun and quick. The atmosphere is cozy and fun. It is a family atmosphere, while also good for date night... More

We had heard this was the place to go for Mexican. It was pretty good. It wasn't spectacular, it wasn't terrible, it was very middle of the road. The food arrived hot and it tasted good. The waiter was attentive and accommodating. The restaurant was a bit dark but the booths were comfortable and clean. Based on reputation, I expected... More

Not your typical Mexican eatery, but not quite authentic but getting there. Very good, good wait staff, quiet, romantic place. Definitely worth a visit, or 2. The menu is Americanized but very creative something for pert near any taste. Even their wings are excellent.

This is the best "chain" Mexican restaurant in Anderson. Salsa is great and the margaritas are always spot on. If you're looking for a great go to Mexican restaurant, this is it!
