I love this place whether eating in or carrying out. One of my favorites. The food and drinks are great as well as the service. Go ahead and see for yourself. I think you will be pleased.

Stopped by while transiting the region over the holidays. Was greeted and seated in good order. After some clarification, my drink order was delivered and I ordered the Enchilada Poblanas for dinner and the Fried Ice Cream for dessert. The enchilada was very good, although it contained something very much like spinach. The ice cream was excellent!

While this restaurant won't beat out many in my home state, it was pretty good for dinner after a long day on the road. The meals were reasonably priced and the quantity of food was what you'd expect.

The food here isn't quite as good as what we had when we lived in Texas. But we had an enjoyable meal, certainly better than what we might have expected from a Mexican restaurant in the mid-West. We'll definitely be back as future trips take us through Sikeston.

I've always loved their food. Sometimes I pick up instead of fining in but am never disappointed. Very reasonably priced.

They have the best chicken taco salad in town. The best white cheese sauce too. Atmosphere is fun and colorful.

Nothing to get too excited about. I've had better but I've had worse. This place is in the middle. The Italian margarita was great, generous, and affordable. The food took a long time to come out for it to be so un spectacular.

Clean building as you get in. Air conditioner works great. Renovated seating finished recently. The staff are nice and interact with the customers. Food is served hot and large portions.

Best Mexican food in town. We go here about once a week. The chunky guacamole is excellent. Plenty of variety to choose from. The fajitas for one of my favorite dishes here

This place has the best food--you are always craving it. They had another in Jackson MO but are opening a new one in New Madrid, MO where I work. Everyone you talk to gives this place two thumbs up. Must list.
