The food is really good, the staff are super friendly and always the same ones so they know you when you come in, at least they welcome those of us who go there every Wednesday night for $0.99 marguerites. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This our "go to" restaurant. We visit almost once a week. The owners and staff have been consistent for many years and it has become a town favorite. Great variety of food and great service, all at a great value. If you like Mexican, it is worth a visit.

It's quite good, typical Mexican American food. Great chips and salsa. I've never met a taco I didn't like 😀🌮.

Good food with reasonable prices, but the service wasn't the greatest on our last few visits, possibly due to a full house at the time.

Great fast service. Great specials and margarita nights. Salsa could be a little spicier for our taste.

This place rates above very good, hence the E. We had a larger group and were greeted with good service and good food at an excellent price. We ordered quite a variety and the constant was: it was all good to eat, good to look at and easy on the pocket book. The drinks were more than adequate and we... More

The meals we ordered were excellent, if the salsa were better I'd give it 5 starts. Portions are large and filling. Had a very large dos xx beer for a better low price. Glad smithville has a Mexican restaurant again. The wait staff was friendly and efficient, no complaints here.

The only Mexican restaurant in Smithville and it is average. We eaten here several times just because its the only Mexican in the area and would eat there more offend if it were as good as pervious reviewer had said. The service is good but the food is just average.
