The food is ok but have a tendency to Over charge. Won't give you a itemized bill. This one is the one by Walmart. The one on CC is ok.

We went here after the Nixa Christmas parade with friends. The food is always hot and comes out quickly. We have been here several times and never have to wait to be seated or for our food. The atmosphere is very nice and family friendly....More

The service here was horrible. They weren’t even busy either. The food was barely average. I will not return and would not recommend this place.

Great $1 tacos on Tuesday and Thursday nights. There are choices of soft or crisp shells with either chicken or beef. Margaritas are really good and reasonably priced. Service is great especially Alex.

Eat there at least 3 times a month. Always check their specials board. Items usually 1.00 less than menu. Dress is casual. Service is good most times. As in any restaurant staff does sometimes lack the consistent service. 95% of the time we are pleased.

Service was excellent. Lots of choices on menu. Chips and salsa were good. Chili Colorado and Chile Relleno were very bland.
