Everyone I know said this place was the best Mexican in town. I had been meaning to try it but never got around to it until yesterday. All I can say is wow. From the salsa to the entree, great fresh flavors. Friendly servers, very reasonable prices. This place isn't really big, and gets crowded quickly around lunch, so come... More

We went here based on Yelp reviews - it actually had the highest rating. Staff was friendly, prices were fair, and food came out quickly. It was good but it wasn't anything that blew me away with flavor. I felt like it was pretty standard Mexican cuisine, and would be a consistent eats if I were local.

Handmade tortillas, the BEST Guacamole on the planet. If I could only eat one thing the rest of my life, it would be their guac.

I'm not sure about the other food, because I found my one true love at this restaurant. Al Pastor tacos. Chips are fresh and the salsa is tasty. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. The price of everything also hits the spot.

I'm not in Greensboro often, but whenever we are THIS is the place I want to go. If I lived nearby, I'd be a regular. Service and food are fantastic every time, everything is very reasonably priced. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

This was my first visit to this restaurant which is halfway across town but I wanted to give it a try due to the great TA reviews. My three person order was ready for an on-time pickup. The staff are very friendly. My order was ready upon arrival so by the time I got home the food was still very... More

The setting is an unassuming plaza along a busy road, but the food and atmosphere inside were well beyond what I expected. Excellent food, attentive service, reasonable prices -- and very busy with locals and us road trippers alike. Parking looks like a potential problem, as we saw some patrons trotting across the highway from the shopping center across the... More
