This eatery satisfies the combination of family gathers we have. Plenty of food, fresh & hot-as hot as you want it! Even the kids love the combinations of sauces!

This restaurant is always busy but you never have to wait for long. The food is delicious and the portions are plentiful. We often split an entree and still leave full. The salsa bar has something for everyone. My favorite item is the carne asada....More

We will not go to this restaurant again! Lots of food no flavor. Very salty. You will not get good food at this restaurant. I will say, the table side guacamole was good.

Parking lot parking. Wait was minimal because it is cafeteria style seating. I felt crammed in to eat. It smells like burnt fajitas. The food was okay. Service was okay.

Great food at a good price keeps this place packed even on weeknights. It is not ideal for a quiet, romantic dinner, but kids seem to enjoy the lively atmosphere. Local, family owned and closely involved. Different brothers own & manage - also in Asheville....More
