This is no longer in business, but Casa Lupita is now there and their food is very good. On Tuesdays they have Taco Tuesday for 99 cents each!! They are good.

Rudy runs the place and is a top notch owner. Very friendly and cares about the customer. The food is excellent and have eaten about everything on the menu. My fav is the steak Burro Grande. Excellent flavor and hearty portions for typical ma-pa Mexican. Service and wait staff is prompt with drinks and chips. Between Cazadores and Casa Lupita... More

I like it. Most Mexican food is not overly full of flavor to begin with but you definitely get what you pay for since the food is cheap and the service is good AND quick.

Dona Cata is more than just your run-of-the-mill Mexican restaurant. It is family owned and very small, warm, and welcoming. The salsa is delicious, but be sure to also ask for a pot of the Queso Fundido. Mmmm! On rare occasion they offer Horchata to drink, but sadly not often enough. The restaurant was a Frisch's Big Boy in a... More

Service is always good and the food is better. They will make pretty much anything you ask for, want something added? removed? replaced? Just ask and the kitchen will do it for you. I don't think we have ever had to wait to be seated and the food is always fresh and hot no matter how busy they are.

While visiting my brother in Sidney over Cinco De Mayo we decided to, of course, go out for Mexican food! They chose Dona... I was pleasantly pleased with the evenings food and service. I had the Chimi's...the one with chicken was EXCELLENT. I even asked how they got so much flavor into it! The service for such a busy night... More
