We chose this place based on other reviews and were not disappointed. All the standards were there, but also some more interesting dishes. Those we tried were excellent, and the service was good. We did notice a leak in the roof as we were leaving!

Average salsa, heavy on smokey chipotle flavor, stale-ish chips...we ordered Tony's steak nachos...tortillas were a little greasy, and again average.

This is a must-eat every time we travel anywhere near Hiawassee and Young Harris. Incredible salsa, chips, tortillas, and excellent and fresh tacos. I can't wait to try some of their other dishes, but I can't recommend their fajitas enough!

The food was terrible, the tacos were ok but nothing else was. The salsa was vingerie, not good, the service was subpar . I don't know if we had a new waiter but we ordered a chicken rellano, told him twice and he still got...More
