fresh food well presented. One of the best of all the Mexican restaurants in Kearney. We've tried them all. Attentive servers, refills on sodas and ice tea. Very reasonable pricing and close to the interstate for travelers. Great lunch spot. Small but well stocked bar...More

Went here based on Trip Advisor and hotel recommendations and we were not disappointed. Great Mexican food, large portions. Don't order the special Mango Martini as it is way too salty.

This was their new location just off I-80. So new that they didn't have a liquor license so NO margaritas! The server had trouble getting our order straight, chips were a little greasy, salsa average at best. It was a good try, anyway.

Perhaps not the best Mexican food I've ever had, but it is in the top 10. I was brought 2 heaping plates of tostadas, rice and beans. The service was extremely friendly and helpful. I left the restaurant more than satiated, more like over-dosed.

Great find on a long stormy ride through Nebraska. Pleasantly surprised as to extent of menu and tastiness of food. Authenticity and great service stop here

The food is good, and not expensive. And I don't think I've ever seen non-fast-food served so quickly. Great place for a quick lunch.

We ate the Carne Asada here, it alright but leaves a little to be desired. This is basic mexican food that is a step about Taco Bell.
