We stopped in for lunch and drinks. The food was really good. I had a burrito and my husband had the pork tacos and they were great. We ate the leftovers when we got home 8 hours later - and at that point I wished I had ordered the pork tacos too! They had really good rice and beans as... More

We have eaten here quite a few times before. This time, however, the food was disappointing . The nacho platter had an off taste to it. The chicken in my wife's tacos was not good. We ended up sending some of the food back. We will be trying a different Mexican restaurant next time.

Food is decent and happy hour drinks are on point. The service is a bit laid back so don't expect to be in and out quickly, but no worries...it's happy hour!

Some frinds and I were shopping and decided we wanted mexican and saw this place. We went in and what a treat. The prices were great and the service could not have been better. The food all I can say is WOW. Dont pass up the black beans. Best i have ever had the tamales were the real deal.

I personally like this place, but have heard others complain. I don't get it, but for a quick, easy meal, where you can get good service, good food and spend time with the family, what is the problem. I enjoy this place quite a bit.

I recommend the Taylorsville location over this one for food ratings. But for service this location on Shelbysville was better. So......you choose.

Great Mexican restaurant not too visible just off Hurstbourne. Comfortable seating, well decorated in Mexican these. Servers are prompt. Typical full flavored menu items, plenty portion size. Excellent price for what you get. Good bar and all kinds of exotic drinks.
