I am not a fan of the owner. She knows why. But her food is very good. Very consistent. Love the evening waitresses.

I have only been here a couple of times with Coworkers. The food is usually decent, but the wait staff (at least the girl we usually get) is not very attentive nor is she nice. The only good thing to eat are the burritos and that is if everything is fresh. So all in all it has it's good days... More

Have never had a bad meal. The chips and salsa are the best. Bring an appetite. it always seems to grow on the plate while you are working on it. I prefer the tacos but have had several items from the menu and have never had anything that was disappointing.

Yea its a little out of the way but the cheese enchilada plate is pretty damn good. My younger kids always get cheese quesadea's and I either get enchiladas or fajitas. Everything is authentic and excellent.

The food wasn't bad it was kind of sketchy outside at night but once I stepped in it was fine the waitress was really friendly. I said give this place an average rating with regard to the food

MY family and I went in to get lunch, since we hadn't been in the restaurant in quite some time and enjoy some of the cuisine. However, upon entering the restaurant we were not able to sit at any of the 4 empty tables, as they were reserved. There were some other tables that were not cleaned off that we... More

First off I do love their salsa! It is in my top 10 favorites of all time. With that said my son can never remember the name but refers to it as, "the place with the best rice I've ever eaten!" Now the rice is excellent but he's 10 so take it or leave it. I do enjoy their enchiladas... More

We always enjoy eating here. The food is great and a good value for the money. The resturant is a little out of the way but worth getting off the I-40 for.

My wife and I ate there with some friends after a late night of dancing. Three of us ordered the menudo and one of our friends ordered a burger. Once our food came out, we all wished that we had ordered burgers. The menudo smelled the same way it does when it's still raw and the caldo was watered-down with... More

We came here looking for a "hole in the wall" good mexican restaurant that wasn't a large chain. We swung and missed this time. We arrived and were told to sit where we wanted. There were four of us, two adults and two kids. We ordered an enchilada plate, a kids taco plate, and a kids quesadilla plate. There was... More
