Went here on the basis of reviews here and were not disappointed. A little slow to be seated but then quickly served with chips and a drink order, $3 for two Blue Moon drafts was amazing. I had the tacos and my wife had the duo deal and both were excellent. Service was attentive and friendly, overall a great experience.

The food was and is always great. This was not the first time eating here. Really like going on Saturday for the live music.

This Mexican restaurant is, I believe, family run, I ordered a Modela Negra and the House special with beef & chicken Chimichungas and Queso dip

Located on the 192 is the Mexican restaurant where you can enjoy a magnificent dining at an incredible price , if you go in the early evening on Friday and Saturday will also enjoy the music of the mariachis, the service is excellent and is served by its owner. Recommended 100 percent

I enjoy Mexican food once in a while, but this place is a must anytime I visit Orlando. This past trip we went twice in 6 days. Best Fajitas anywhere, lots of Chicken....and quality meat and so tasty! Great Tortilla Chips and drinks too. My son had a Burrito, he said that was great too.
