Very disappointed in the food here. It was really bland and the salsa had no kick to help it out. The server was nice and attentive but the food was slow coming out and it was not hot, just warm. Will stick with Marias.

Best Mexican in Platte City. The authentic Mexican cuisine is wonderful, quick service, and a cold cerveza bring joy to my mouth.

This has to be the best Mexican Food in Platte City. Big portions with a great taste. I have been here twice and I have had a great meal every time. You won't go wrong going here.

This has become a weekly staple for our family. The restaurant is clean and well decorated. The staff is very friendly. The food is good, comes out quickly and hardly ever a wait. If you are looking for your typical Mexican restaurant, cannot go wrong.

Everyone was nice to me and everything came out in a timely manner. I ordered to-go before as well and the quality remains there. Altogether a very solidly ran restaurant!

Food was very good. Service was good also. We come from an area that the Mexican food is very good. Rates up there with home. Would return if in the area again.

This restaurant was close to our motel and was a great evening meal. The salsa was perfect and our server kept it full!! The chicken quesadilla and carne Asada were great!
