Pretty good food, not great. Service was pretty slow. Our waitress did not stop by, nor did I even see her for a long time after the food was served. I got two chicken and bean burritos and they were good. My wife got a wet burrito and she said the beef tasted just like hamburger/ Had the service been... More

I ordered a frozen margarita and their special, the Enchiladas Verdes. The margarita was smooth (no cheap tequila here) and tasty. The enchiladas were flavorful, with just the right amount of heat. We re-visited the restaurant two nights later and had another excellent meal. Our server gave us her personal recommendations, which proved to be right on. The next time... More

I was in Three Rivers on business and stopped here to eat. The free chips and salsa were tasty. I ordered fish tacos that came with a plate of refried beans and rice. The tacos were delicious. The beans and rice were typical, nothing special. The wait staff were polite and prompt. Overall, I would eat here again when I'm... More

I have never had bad food or bad service here. Was my absolute favorite in Three Rivers while I lived there and have had an impossible time trying to find something as good where I live now. I could eat their chips, queso & salsa ALL DAY LONG.

Don't judge this restaurant by the exterior, which is not well kept. The inside is nicely decorated, and the food was good. The spice in the chicken fajita was unique and tasty. Also, the mozzarella sticks, while not a traditional Mexican dish, we're quite good. The salsa was excellent, and the food arrived quickly.

I love their salsa!!!! There is a chicken dish that I love. We took my sister in law who is gluten free and lactose intolerant and she was able to find something she liked. We always enjoy the food, is is better than most of the places in a larger city like Kalamazoo .

When on road trips, checking out small, independent, family owned Mexican restaurants tends to keep me quite occupied. So why not check one out that's right in my own backyard? Did just that, and what a very pleasant surprise it is! Not a real pretentious, fancy building, but quite cozy once you enter. These kind, I find, tend to yield... More
