Had lunch here and it was one of the worst meals i have ever had. If this is authentic Mexican food then i am staying away from Mexico. Everything is brown and bland. Service was just OK. Building is outdated and not very appealing. Which i can overlook for good food and service but that was not the case. I... More

Great Mexican-American food at an amazing price! I always order take out and it is ready in 10 to 20 min! Don't bring any plastic, cash only! Loyal customer for 14 years!

I've been here twice, I think the second time because I forgot I didn't care for it. Staff is great, let me taste everything (and I didn't stay). They only take cash--in 2016? And I personally don't care for the taste of anything there that I sampled. To top it all off it's all brown. I know people who love... More

The gentlemen (Emilio)that first brought these recipes to Marshall area came direct from Texas about 60 years ago thanks to men in the National Guard who enjoyed his food during their service in Texas. This is love or hate experience. My husband has been a fan during Emilio's time about 50 years and we continue to drive a bit farther... More

Have been going here since I was a kid....the best but this is not Tex Mex like the chain restaurants. This is authentic home cooking from Mexico. Enjoy!!

Oye Amigos is perhaps the best example of Southern California Tex-Mex style food this side of the Mighty Miss. The mom and pop establishment is small, with good seating, cash-only, and offer first-timers with an adequate free sample tray. It os true that some people don't like it, but that is probably because they are expecting Mexican food, which this... More

Are here once, that was more than enough. Place is in dire need of updating. It looks grimey inside and outside. The smell coming from the extractor fan outside is enough to put anyone with a sense of smell off but people seem to go in there. The food is dreadful. It looked the same coming out as it did...

I enjoy my beef mainly ground or shredded they have neither its a potato gravy concoction that's not even good. It is actually the beef for tacos not sure how that works...

Oye Amigos is a tradition for me. It started maybe 50 years ago at a small eatery in Battle Creek called Emilio's where I had my first taste of the unique Mexican fair and met the Emilio. Lot's of stories surround the man and the restaurant and no doubt you can find many still in circulation today. Emilio has passed... More

Let me start with the good. Our server was very friendly and quick. Since it was our first time at the restaurant she offered us a sample plate so we could taste the meat, beans, chicken and rice. It was all good but different. Definitely not the traditional Mexican or American-Mexican. Food was ok but not great. I had the... More
