We waited for over 15 minutes and we were never waited on. The servers were at the register talking. But as we walked out they thanked us for coming.

Overall best Mexican restaurant in Wilson. Love their fajitas, Yolanda's, and combination platters. Salsa is very tasty especially when served cold. Service is steadily getting better.

There food is always taste great. The servers are always friendly. The drinks are fantastic. There location holds back the business. If they were in a better spot they would be a lot busier.

They change the menu frequently so you can try some unusual Mexican dishes. Some are good healthy choices.

When asked again, they got themselves excused by blaming... More

Food was good and plenty of it. Service was excellent. But the best of all was the ultimate margarita. You could taste the quality of the cocktail.
