Have mostly had lunch here. It's pretty "stock" Mexican fare. They make a nice fresh guac for an appetizer. The test of the dishes are ok. Served hot and hospitable staff. Careful ordering a margarita ...it could easily cost ~$20 if you get the "top shelf". Not worth it. I pinged the mgr. about the cost and he adjusted it... More

On a budget? This is the joint for you! A ton of good Mexican food for few pesos!! Really. A giant platter of fajitas is $11.00 - plenty for two people to share. I never take food home but the fajitas platter is so generous, I had to get a take-home box and enjoy them again the next day. One... More

Wow! When you're hungry, this is the place to go. The food is really done well, not too spicy but not too weak! The service is friendly, FAST and always proficient! You can enjoy dining in this huge restaurant without ANY WAIT! They're one of the few really great restaurants in the area. Ironically they're behind a taco bell and... More

We have a place down in Oak Island and this place is one of our favorite places to eat! We don't have this kind of quality mexican food/atmosphere at home, so we absolutely love coming here. The bean dip in the bread bowl is a crowd favorite and everyone must try it if you go there. There hasn't been a... More

Every thing down to the salad was great. Tacos, burritos, and enchiladas with beef, steak and chicken. Very enjoyable. Will go back.

We had a appetite for Mexican and this place looked nice and clean on the outside. The inside was just as nice and clean. Food was absolutely delicious and piping hot! Staff was more than accommodating and friendly.

First meal when we got to the island. We had to kill some time before being able to check in to our house. Food was great, server was personable, and when we finished we were able to check in to our house.
