Awesome place for a cheap lunch. Love the lunch chicken quesadillas with the chicken tortilla soup. The service was great. The food was fresh and came out fast. The queso and guacamole live are also great. Check it out at lunch or dinner it rocks!!!

Stopped in for a late night meal just getting in from long drive. We sat in a booth in the bar, our waiter/bar tender was great. Chips, salsa and Queso were yum. Food was served fast and fresh. Tasted good, no complaints.

Good food and friendly, fun servers. Food was very good and the watermelon margaritas were amazing. My wife is a vegan and easily found the vegetable fajitas were for her.

Went there recently while on a trip to Amarillo. Very good. Nice family atmosphere. Tacos are filled to the brim, the enchiladas are tasty and plump and, if course, the chips and salsa are grateful appetizers. Good parking. Good for families, friends, and couples alike....More
