Reviewed 30 July 2015

This place is old and looks like a hole in the wall in need of a good wash down; but you will not find bugs and you will find great food. Order the chile relleno which comes with great rice and a pork chili to die for. And order the full plate and take 1/2 home as this dish reheats very well. If adventurous, ask for the special drink.

This little restaurant and bar is in a residential part of South Kansas City in a neighborhood known as Marlborough and is not fancy on the outside, but well worth a stop. The inside has a real old fashioned homey feel to it and the staff is very friendly. The food itself is very good and you get large portions. All in all a very nice dining experience

Just kidding. It's probably not all that bad. It's not in the best part of town, but if you go during the day you'll be fine. They have the best Mexican Buffet I've ever been to. Don't let the exterior fool you, it's fabulous food! The owners are really nice as well!
