Whether you want to dine in or take home, the menu items are almost always consistently prepared quickly and use the same recipe regardless of the chef. Take out chips are not recommended 😉

I am not a Mex food purest, but everything was very good. The fajita combo and the shrimp quesadilla hit the spot. The $7.50 pitcher of margaritas certainly added to the enjoyment.

I eat at this restaurant fairly often, good Mexican food for being in a small Midwest town. The staff are mostly Mexican and the food is too. I asked the man at the register one day if they could make me chilaquiles someday. He said absolutely. He went on to explain to me that they are not the traditional Mexican... More

Same as most Missouri mexican restaurants, its fast mex food mostly factory manufactured and heated and sauced in house. I do recommend ordering something that is prepared in house.

Very good food and excellent service! The enchilada dinners we had were authentic Mexican and the chips and salsa they brought before the meal were also excellent!

We stopped when we were staying in Cameron for the night. The atmosphere was nice. We sat in the non-smoking section and could not even smell smoke (if that is something that is important to you). The service was phenomenal. Drinks were filled quickly as needed and the food was brought out hot. It was delicious. The prices were extremely... More

Authentic Mexican cuisine. Polite and helpful staff. Standard wait times. Great chips and salsa. At a small charge, you can order white queso dip. It's well worth the extra cost! Fresh food, recommended for anyone that is hungry. Slightly large portions: This meal will fill you up!

Food was good, generous portions and service was quick and correct. Location is off the inter-state a bit but worth the trip. Would recommend this restaurant.

We have eaten here once but others tell me that they have eaten at this restaurant at other locations. The food is very good and reasonably priced.

My husband and I stopped in here on 2-8-16 for lunch. My husband ordered the carne asada plate and I ordered the pork carnitas. Both platters were big enough to share. Big portions, excellent service and Very good food. Chips were nice and hot and salsa was very good.
