Newly remodeled we have never had a bad meal here. Staff is super nice. Good margaritas with the mango being a favorite. Plenty of chips and salsa. Food is hot. Always a favorite of our family

From the fresh tortilla chips to the tasty margarita's this place rocks (with or without salt!). I love the mole sauce on anything they prepare.

We have been to Lawrence twice in our lives. The first time, we went to Cafe Azteca on the recommendation of friends. The food was excellent. Turns out, the restaurant was closing the next day for renovations. So, on our second visit to Lawrence, we...More
