Decent Mexican food with a very friendly staff. Not the best, nor the worst, but ok Mexican food overall.

How can anyone have anything negative to say about this place? My order is always accurate (even when I add/delete toppings), made quickly, and tastes great!

I know Mexican food and this place was not serving it. First, the host was this young girl wearing tore up jeans and messed up hair, at first impression we thought she was under some kind of influence. We were seated and at first glance menu is impressive with lots to choose from. Second, after deciding what we would like... More

Food was very good and arrived quickly and hot. Took a little while for chips and salsa to be delivered to us upon seating, and our table of four ran out of both and had to finally ask for more. However, both were very good. Food was quite good for all four of us. Definitely recommend this place.

Usually get a shredded chicken taco salad for takeout. It hits the spot when I want Mexican food. I call ahead and they usually have it ready when I get there. They also have a grilled chicken taco salad for a little bit more. Both are good, try one!

You might not expect to find a gem like this in a small town in Ohio, but it is there. This family owned Mexican restaurant serves up the best Mexican food. This is a mainstay for birthdays, parties, after church lunches on Sundays. The food is delicious. The service is great and it is reasonably priced. There is also plenty... More

The restaurant was busy but not overly crowded. The food was tasty, served hot, served fast. I had the enchiladas supreme and it was a generous portion of four with chicken, beef, cheese and bean included. One of my family members had fajitas and was very pleased with the taste, temperature and portion size. The chorizo is another dish was... More

Due to job change I rarely get here anymore. Still my favorite Mexican place. Our waiter has been there the 15 or 16 years since they opened. He recognized me also. Their salsa, with some added habanero sauce, is the best. It also makes a good sauce for the food

The food was very good and the Cadillac margarita is a must have! Service was fairly fast considering how busy the restaurant was. The salsa and chips are very good as well.
