We eat here a lot and it's always great! Great food, drinks, and the service is excellent. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is always clean. This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The prices are very affordable and the parking is adequate. Stop in and you will enjoy yourself immensely.

The restaurant was clean. The staff are very attentive. The service was very good. My selection was not very authentic. I selected a tostada. What I received was a soggy tortilla topped with a mound of ground beef. There was some sort of white cheese sauce generously layered on the tortilla. Missing was the chihuahua cheese, along with the lettuce... More

This restaurant is local to where I live and I've never done a review! Let me just say..good portions, good tasting, very reasonable prices and good service and good servers. If you are in the Dyersburg area and have a taste for Mexican this is the place to go.

Service was quick, and the food was very good, but they don't seem to pay attention to detail. I asked for a Corona Light and they... More

Good family restaurant. They tend to get real slow and easily overwhelmed when the crowd picks up. Our server seem confused and disoriented when he was ask questions. We've eaten there multiple times and it is a good place to go.

Nothing very significant ,chips on the table ,regular sauce and the drink ..food came on time ,I'd say very fast which means is being pre cooked Service was flat without any distinction.Good for a lunch choice when feeling like having Mexican food.
