This was a good restaurant and I'm glad I came across it, chips and salsa with a taco plate hit the spot

They were super busy and worked so hard this particular Friday evening. Food was enjoyable. Our favorite is the spinach enchilada.

My husband and I split a Taco Rico plate which is two beef burritos with lettuce smothered in queso with rice and beans. We had a small delicious chilled guacamole which we split as well. It was all definitely enough for two of us. He enjoyed a an ice cold beer and I had a margarita. The chips were fresh... More

Good, basic Tex Mex. Tacos fair, hot sauce ok, bland. Good chips, good rice. Excellent cheese enchiladas. Good place to go if you want your food served quickly. Occasionally not as hot as it should be, but overall good. A little pricey for what you get.

Best enchiladas in Waco, TX. And always fresh chips and homemade salsa that is not too spicy, not to mild. Been here a long time, cuz they have a loyal following. When in the mood for non-chain, homemade TexMex, this is the place.

A very popular restaurant with the locals due to the excellent food and very reasonable prices. We ordered off the lunch menu and had full plates of really good Tex-Mex food.

The top shelf margarita was good as was the service. The food leaves a lot to be desired. The queso was not at all good and was more like a congealed soup than cheese dip. The enchilada sauce was also not good. We definitely will not go back.

If you like authentic Tex Mex food, this is definitely a place you should visit. The lunch crowd starts early. My favorite is the cheese enchiladas. Definitely a place you should try if you have never been here.

Went on the Internet and the information provided said that this was a good or better then good place to eat. Traveling north on I-35 we had to use the services of the lady in the dashboard to find the place. And we did and the event was very pleasing. I can't tell you what I had because I can't... More

I have eaten here many times through the years. The food is consistently good and the portions are generous. Sometimes the restaurant is noisy. The waiters have worked there for years and the service is above average.
