My husband and I stopped in El Puente on our way through Nixa last night. It was some of the best Mexican food I have had in awhile. The service was good and the food was spectacular! We will stop here again.

I have ate there several times, they have a never ending chip basket with every meal. At lunch time they have a smaller portion lunch menu that is very reasonably priced. When a meal includes salad, it usually is fairly large.

This has become our go to Mexican food. Having lived in California for 25 years, I am used to traditional Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. Three of us can have an abundance of food and drink for less than $25.The place is very clean, the servers are very attentive, and the food is exceptional.

Good atmosphere clean establishment. The chips were stale on both trips. The salsa and queso were very tasty however. The chicken chimichanga was very good as well. The service was a different story all together. Our waiter made very few stops by our table. We ended up having to go to the counter ourselves to get drink refills. In fact... More

Yes! They do have the best salsa, and they make it fresh~ they do use cilantro. The king burrito is a family favorite. There are plenty of choices, along with lunch specials, to choose from.

Fajitas are fabulous, Burritos excellent, every meal we've had has been second to none in the area. You won't leave hungry. Service very good and prices are very reasonable. 5 Stars for sure.

Tried them in their new location.....just as good as always! Their fajitas are the best! Made with fresh tomatoes, thin tender meat and all the goodies. Quick, friendly service as well even or crazy busy days. Don't be scared away by a line. They will get you in soon.
