Great place for a family outing. If you are having a birthday you have to come in to celebrate. The staff will sing to you and don't leave without having some flan with caramel sauce or cake. Wonderful atmosphere and the staff is always so patient and helpful. You don't feel rushed and you don't need to get dressed up.... More

While in town for a wedding our friends to us to their "usual" place. I've been hearing about the Mexican food here from them for years. It was worth driving to MO from CO to try it! The staff was friendly and fun.

We were passing through Trenton and stopped for a late lunch, so the place was mostly empty. Our server was very friendly and attentive, asking where we were from and where our travels were taking us. We were immediately served warm, crisp chips with a very good salsa. We both ordered taco salads, which were served in warm, crispy flour... More

This restaurant is in the new Mexican style, with multi painted chairs, etc. It's family owned and authentic. Our Guatemalan server was friendly and attentive, immediately offering the non-smoking section. We were born on the West Coast, so found this food good, but on the quiet side. There were jabanero and cayenne sauces on the table, so no problems. Specifically,... More
