The best Mexican food in Opelousas. We had Super burrito and steak fajitas that we always enjoy. Not Caliente but next best thing.

My family and I eat here regularly. We have gathering here of 20 or more. The service is always great as is the food. Volcanic rock bowl is my favorite!! They joke with the kids as well as my dad which tries to speak Spanish. A great place!!

The shucked and shrimp cheesy nachos are awesome. Big grilled pieces of bell peppers and onions along with the sauce and meats, yummy yummy. Really nice workers and good margaritas.

The food is substandard. It appears every dish is pre-prepared and heated up by Chef Mike (the microwave). Too many Margarita options. There is like 5 options. One of the waiters insisted on speaking Spanish even though he could speak English. I would say something and he would repeat what I said in Spanish. I repeated it in English and... More

Simply stated, the best Mexican food I've tasted in some time, and I eat it often throughout the southwest. You won't regret stopping by. Service is good, quick, and atmosphere is terrific.

Visiting from out of town. Top shelf margaritas were fantastic. I'm kind of a salsa snob & this was pretty fresh4/5 stars. Shrimp quesadilla was absolutely delicious! Great service & atmosphere.

Enjoyed the food and the staff was friendly I was a little late so the crowd was small. I found the experience to be better than expected and would certainly stop by again if I was in the area.

A friend and I decided to have lunch here and it definitely didn't disappoint. I had the shrimp chimichangas which were filled with large grilled shrimp and grilled vegetables, but the best part was the awesome cheese sauce that the chimichangas were covered in! This place is a must-stop if you enjoy Mexican food!
