Not only is the food excellent, but the price is right, the nacho chips and salsa are delicious and generous, and the people there are so nice! I have visited about 20 times and never had a bad experience. Fish tacos on Fridays are the...More

Great service and turnaround for a lunch meeting. Lunch menu has great variety. Quick, hot service. Chunky guacamole was amazing. Fish tacos delicious but need the guacamole on the side. Will definitely go back on my next trip.

This is my "go to" Mexican restaurant in Athens, Ga. They have been an excellent choice for 15 years. They are always willing to make a dish suit you, and the food is always hot and tasty.

This is our favorite place for Mexican food in town! We go there almost weekly and are very rarely disappointed. Combos, nachos, ceviche, tortilla soup, specials - all delicious. Also the margaritas are excellent and not a cheap watered down version.
