Our first Mexican restaurant in Texas and we were not disappointed. Wide variety of menu choices in this very colorful restaurant. Very good service.

The waitress didn't really care about me. She gave me atttitude and acted like she didn't want to serve me. Food took too long and it came out to be disgusting. The food I ordered was cold, dry and over seasoned. The only good thing I got out of this restaurant was the drink. Never coming back

Excellent fajita beef tacos. Has a very strong smell of fabuloso cleaner in the restaurant. It is actually overpowering. Food is pretty good. Cheese dip is the bomb.

This is my first experience of Latin American dishes in Killeen. I've never heard of a restaurant with this kind of food that also has a drive through. The atmosphere is a little dark and the staff is average in terms of politeness and overall service. The chimichanga was the best, but my hubby's shrimp dish were not fully deveined... More

Yum! The Molcajete is to die for, the salsa is fabulous, and the spinach enchiladas are hearty and delicious. Oh, and the charro beans won't leave you disappointed! Good food and good prices. However, I took off one star because on some days the food tastes a little less than fresh, and the shredded chicken will sometimes have bones in... More

I've eaten here numerous times and recently the quality of the food has gotten worse today I found a sharp fragment or shard of hard plastic in my food. Fortunately I found it before I bit down on it or swallowed it.

What a festive location! When you walk in there's a blast of color from everywhere. We were four eating. Two ordered the chile relleno meal, one taquitos plate and I had the carne guisada. One asked for some lime and we were surprised to find a $1.50 charge for that on the bill. Everyone enjoyed their meal and drinks and... More

We ate here at least once a week during our 3 years living in Harker Heights, now in London...we can only dream about Taqueria's delicious breakfast taco's & their Sweet Tea which is just to die for. Staff are so friendly and gracious too and really wonderful with the kids. Great cocktails. We will be back!

This restaurant was nice and the service was very good. The only issue was that it was super busy and our waitress was a bit over worked! The food was pretty good and I believe when we go again we will have a nice experience.
