We were there on Thursday, so we ordered three of the Thursday special drinks ($2.75 for Margaritas!), and they turned out to be delectable. They have a Mexican hot sauce on the table that we...

I've had many different Mexican restaurants type of what they call Mexican and I can say this was one of the most authentic Mexican restaurants I've had. I ordered a to go order so I don't know about the table service but when I walked in they had my food ready and hot.

I had the Pollo Lencho and it was excellent. My father also had a chicken dish which he said was great. The staff is always friendly.

Local friend recommended this restaurant. One of the better Mexican Restaurants I've ever been to.The menu was somewhat different than I'm used to in northeast Tennessee Mexican Restaurants. I recommend the TCA Tex meal. (initials may be different but similar, memory lapse)
