In Elk Rapids for Harbor Day, and was looking for somewhere to eat. This was my first time to this place. Food was good, the service was slow. They sat use in a area where wait staff had gone or something. The waitress from the other side of the the room came over to take over👍. Thank you for filling... More

Stopped by for dinner on our way through town as it was getting late and we were running out of options. Interesting menu, half tex-mex and half american (burgers, seafood). Service was very friendly but the food took a while and was average at best. My soft corn tortilla tacos were a bit rubbery (as if they were heated for... More

This restaurant is one the few that serve real homemade Mexican food in Michigan. The price is a bit high. But the food is worth it. Those that think Taco Bell is better have eaten too much fast food. The food is authentic with proper spices. Service is ok. Would definitely return

I really enjoyed the burrito, but I like Mexican...as well as the margueritas! Not a fancy place, but good for the price.

This is a traditional Mexican family-owned restaurant that has been in business for many years. However, they have a Polish grandma and she puts on a special Polish menu once in the spring and once in the fall. It's fabulous! Borscht, stuffed cabbage, keilbasa, kishka, and three types of pierogi. It was all delicious and tasted just like my busha's!!... More

Went there for a lunch and for two burritos and one appetizer, one coke it was 45 dollars. That is quite pricey. the Burritos were ok, nothing to write home about, the best part of the meal was actually the hot sauce. The Burrito was a bit on the small side for a Mexican join and they actually charge you... More

You have to be very hungry to want to stop at this restaurant. How can anybody serve bad NACHO'S. Very little of anything on them and the chips were not fresh. Not a busy restaurant so maybe that is the first sign that the food will not be the best !! Won't go back for sure.

This restaurant is an old stand by that we've been frequenting for 37 years. They have authentic Mexican food that is delicious & reasonably priced. My favorite is the Giant Flour Tostada. They have good food, friendly service, fair prices & a good atmosphere. They have American food also if you're not a fan of Mexican.

In my humble opinion, the first choice in Elk Rapids for dinner, particularly if you are looking for good serious Mexican cuisine. I was a resident when the Vasquez family acquired this business, and now that I'm an "out-of-towner", I try to reacquaint myself with the cuisine any time I'm in this part of the state.
