The food here is excellent, and the service is very friendly and pretty efficient. the high ceilings of the building magnify the echoes so we had to shout at each other (which made it worse). However, the atmosphere is fun and the food is worth it.

We had heard that this place was good and to overlook the outside. They were correct!! Great food! Large portions!

As vegetarians we eat in many ethnic restaurants, but especially Mexican. A day later and we are still talking about the veggie burrito and the huevos rancheros as the best Mexican food we have ever had. Excellent and friendly service on our late Friday night visit after enjoying live music at Hotel Patee.

This restaurant is our main place to go to at least every other week. We try to branch out but we usually come back to our favorite meal - Casa de Oro chicken nachos. I have had quite a few of their dishes which are yummy so you can't go wrong. You are greated with a basket of warm tortillas,... More

I have been here several times when in Perry. The building itself is not very inviting, but the menu is extensive, food delicious and huge quantities. You are given a basket of chips and bowls of salsa and white cheese dip when you are seated. The food is typical Mexican fare, but all very good. It can be very noisy... More

Mexican restaurant in downtown Perry. The menu was easy to understand given all the pictures of the dishes. Their website has the full menu with pictures. Servers were friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxing. A great place to eat after a day of cycling.

This isn't gourmet Mexican -- just very good food. Perry has a large Hispanic population, and this is one of several ethnic restaurants. I had a very good beef dish, with the usual sides (refried beans, tortillas, etc.) Very good Mexican beer selection. And very reasonable prices for a good meal.

This is a great restaurant to take your family or guests to. If you can, try to be seated upstairs. It's not as loud, has a great atmosphere and you can see out onto the street. We've eaten numerous items on the menu and have never been disappointed. Chips, salsa, and cheese dip are provided to everyone. Priced right. Good... More
