We try to drive the 45 miles from home about every two months just to eat here. It is one of two Authentic Mexican restaurants in North Florida we will visit again and again. The menu is very large and priced from lunch around 5 bucks to dinner upwards of $8 and can be expensive if you are really hungry... More

They served chicken nuggets as hard as rocks to my two small children. When I brought it to the waitress she acted like it was no big deal. They couldn't even bite into them.

I have to assume the majority of these positive reviews are coming from locals or people who live out in the wilderness of this area of Florida, and have never been to many other Mexican restaurants before. We visited this restaurant on our way back from a 4-hour kayaking trip at Manatee Springs. We were starving, so literally it wouldn’t... More

Well, as I have said before, it's in a shopping center so we go for the food not the ambience. We eat here at least 5-6 x a year (its a ways to drive) and we have always had the very best Mexican style food served piping hot and very quickly. The salsa is terrific and spicy and the Chile... More

Chile rellenos should have meat in them, not just sauce and cheese. First restaurant I have gone into that did not. Sure miss the old Mexican restaurant we use to have in town.

We have found very few mexican restaurants that cook everything from scratch anymore, most use at least some pre-packaged menu items. This is one of the few. Although their food is a little spicy for my taste the overall quality was very good. I would definitely eat here again. Service was also good. We had no complaints.

My family and I eat here quite regular... And we all love the food, it's not too highly priced either! We live about 20 minutes from here so it doesn't take us long, and we always leave full and satisfied! The waitresses are all really helpful too! Never had a bad meal or service here, and have eaten here close... More

I do a lot of traveling and enjoy trying many different restaurants along the way, especially independently owned or small, non chain places. . The one I tried today, by far, had to be the worst. My daughter and I were hungry, it was lunch time. We both enjoy Mexican and this place was close to Walmart, where we had... More
