Always looking for a Mexican restaurant that I can call my favorite. This isn't it and I will continue the search. I had the chalupa and the chili Riano. They were both good but I'm very picky about my Mexican food. Service was excellent but I prefer not to hear the news in Spanish since I don't speak the language.

The food had a good flavor but a very limited variety. Most of the meat was chicken. No soft shell available. The... More

I love this place. They are always fast and friendly and the food is fantastic. The menu isn't huge but everything on it is great. My favorite is the degollado burrito and it goes great with a large Margarita on the rocks (which is also the best in town in my opinion). They sometimes have live music on the weekends... More

Food and service are both great. If you order a margarita get the texcana its only a little more expensive but hand made not out of a jug . Well worth it.

My husband & I have been going to this restaurant since they opened & what we have found is that nothing ever tastes the same! Our favorite foods will be different every time we go! The steak will either be dried out like shoe leather, or well prepared. The salsa tastes different every time you go. Last night I ordered... More

This out of the way restaurant offers friendly service and a great buffet! The outdoor seating is a nice on a pretty spring day for lunch!

Great salsa. Average food. Terrible margarita - tasted like orange soda. The waiter barely spoke English and seemed not to know the difference between a real margarita made with lime juice versus the sugar laced junk that comes out of a giant gallon jug. Won't go back.

Met family here for an after church lunch. Service was quick & friendly. The restaurant (and bathroom) seemed very clean! I have a chicken quesadilla, it was very good! Yummy quest dip! Will visit again!
