A local favorite with Dobbins Air Force Base, this is a good, cheap Mexican place. The salsa, chips and quesadilla are typical favorites.

The place is short on decor, but long on taste, and great value for the money; best enchiladas, combo fajitas, chile colorado, and a fabulous spicy pork dish give you many quality choices.

good food, great margaritas to consistent service. we go there at least once a week. The crowd is composed of young and old alike. Simple Mexican food served hot and fresh made. Simple consistent formula that keeps up coming back

I visit at lunch and for as long as I can remember, I always get grilled chicken nachos. They are the best and no other Mexican restaurant can top them. The salsa is great as well and the chips are always fresh.

The food here is plenty good, they have half price Margarita pitchers on Wednesday, and the people couldn't be more fun and friendly. It's reasonably priced and very consistent. Reliable, fun, fast. A trifecta!

This place consistently ranks as one of the best Mexican "hole in the wall" joints around. Clean, friendly and very inexpensive with a good beer and tequila selection.

After reading great reviews and expecting the place to be just a hole-in-the-wall as well.... we agree, the food is authentic. The staff were authentic as well. A lot of customers were Mexicans too which convinced us that this place reallys serves real Mex food. We absolutely love their chps & salsa, chicken fajita, steak rancheros, and shrimp tacos. And...
