We really enjoy the food here and appreciate options that aren't smothered in the white cheese. I also like that the menu is decent for kids. Service has been hit or miss for us here. Good food.

The food is fantastic....best place in Mattoon for Mexican menu! Always hot and they give your good servings. The drinks are awesome. The margaritas are the best ever!
