I stopped here while shopping and was surprised to see a buffet, which is very convenient and I love a mixture of food. I was also surprised to see a decent variety and the quality was good! They had a chorizo, steak, chicken and veggie dish that was delicious and great with their cheese. I live the type of cheese... More

There is nothing wrong with this type of Mexican food. It is made for the general public. It will be exactly what you expect it to be. Good value, decent food, good atmosphere. If you want something that will burn you up inside, or contemporary Mexican, this isn't for you. Good for the whole family. If you bring the family,... More

Whether we are on a date night or have our son with us... This is one of our favorite places to eat on our side of town. They have the best fajitas I have ever had! I'm not a fan of he buffet though. The only time I tried it the food was cold and that is my biggest pet... More

If you are looking for fancy then this isn't for you. If you are looking for good food and great service, here you go. We have ordered off the menu and selected the buffet many, many times. Everything is always good regardless of how ordered. The service is without question very good. The salsa is a little different each visit... More

I have been to this Mexican style restaurant many times for office lunches with co-workers. This place is very crowded during the rush lunch hour. Quality of the food is average and seating is very congested.

Wasn't too impressed with the food...taste was average at best. We all ordered the combo platter. No margaritas available..just beer. Have had just as good at Taco Bell.

This place had good hot food and served fast. This was on the east side and on the outskirts of Huntsville. If you dont want to venture into town and want some decent hot Mexican food served fast, then this is a safe bet.

Typical Mexican faire. Not great but satisfactory for late arrivers without time for anything better.

Ok yeah it has a buffet even on Sundays. But you get what you pay for. The food was good for the price. Warm and tasty. Good service and a friendly atmosphere.

How could you go wrong with a Mexican buffet??? This place has a lunch buffet Mon-Fri from 11am -2pm. It is pretty awesome! There's everything from stuff to make steak or chicken fajitas, cheese quesadilla's, burritos, to even hot wings and desserts! They have the liquid queso cheese to smother your food in which I go over board with most... More
