I'm a Mexican food snob. I love it! And I don't come here for the food! I come here for the outstanding margaritas and draft beer! The service is so good. People are super friendly! We keep coming back. And it's practically in our back yard! :)

I stumbled onto this restaurant. I love Mexican food so I thought I would give it a try. I had the Beef Fajitas. Holy cow. Very high quality beef. Good vegetables. The flan (my favorite dessert) was firm and tasty.

We ate here just by chance because we were looking for something close to our hotel. It had a little feel of a chain restaurant, but I thought the food was good. I had a chicken quesadilla, and my husband had beef enchiladas. We had to send back our first plates because the food wasn't hot, but they were quickly... More

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way through Texas. Best find! It was full at lunch but the staff seated us right away. Drink order was taken immediately and they came right away (Diet Dr. Pepper was actually in the menu!). We didn't have much time but the menu was full of excellent choices; any type of enchiladas,...

Great place for lunch. The atmosphere was cozy and the music was relaxing. Service was quick and great. Food was exceptional. Plates were plentiful with your order. It will be my stop anytime I am on this side of Denton.

I've been going to this restaurant since before it got hit by a tornado in their old building. They have some of the best guacamole I've ever tried. My mom comes here at least a few times a month to pick up dinner. I definitely recommend going all out and getting the sizzling apple pie for dessert - you will... More

Margaritas are popular here. I tried the appetizer plate since I was by myself there was a half option so that was only 7.99. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the jalapeños that were stuffed with chicken, they were pretty dry everything else was tasty, quesadillas,flautas. This is decent Tex-Mex food. One hint: if the salsa is not hot... More
