I have eaten here about 6 times in the last two years. Food always good delivered quickly. Service adequate, not hovering. The place appears to be an old Western Sizzlin or the like, so it is old. It is fairly clean but dated in appearance. Personnel ready to please, mostly hispanic, but they speak English well, there are sometimes miscommunications... More

Chain outlets failed to gain our attention on the way home from the mountains of Georgia when this little gem caught our eye. Immediate impression was good - clean with lovely aroma of freshly prepared Tex-Mex snagged our senses and we were greeted in a very friendly way. A request for a quieter booth away from the music was happily... More

Been coming on and off to this place since it was in the old location, across the street. One of the best places to eat in Elberton. The food is good, service is great and the price is right. Well done guys.

I visit elberton regularly and haven't eaten here in about a year. The service now is much better than times past and the food has always been good. The reason for not returning for such a long time was the lack of service and it appears that problem has been solved. Not a lot of options of places to eat... More

I'm going to report on what I value honestly. This is my second time coming back so that says a lot. Excellent customer service and warm family environment. Food was very good and served in a timely manner even though it was busy. Authentic. Irrespective of the alternative quality restauraunts in the area, which are limited, this is where you... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants- period. The food is excellent. It's a very clean restaurant and the service is way ahead of most Mexican restaurants I have visited. The chicken and beef burritos (1 of each) on the lunch menu are particularly delicious. The prices are cheap for quality food. Their salsa is very good - even... More

Food about as authentic Mexican as any we have experienced in USA. Menu is extensive, if I remember correctly there are thirty one (31) lunch items and all look good. All five of us had different offerings i.e., Three Beef Enchiladas, Chili Releno, Guacamole Salad, Quesadilla, etc., all were very good, excellent quality, served with Chips and Medium Heat Salsa....

This is a very good Tex-Mex place and the fact it is in a small, rural town makes it even better. You get top quality meals at reasonable prices and don't have to travel to a larger city. The service is great and the beer is cold. The salsa is outstanding.

A top-notch Mexican establishment. Won't surprise those accustomed to Tex-Mex cuisine, but does everything so well that it's silly to complain. Staff is very attentive and responsive to special requests. As generic as it sounds, their cheese steak burritos dish is first rate, and the Chile Colorado is recommended as well.
