We have been here twice and enjoyed our food both times. Got the Texas Fajitas and Flautas the first time and both were excellent! Got the Chicken Parrillada the second time. It was good, but it came out on a cast iron plate that was just too hot. Unfortunately, much of the cheese and vegetables burned while we were waiting... More

Very tasty Mexican food, not the least expensive but very good value for the quality. Adult beverages are also surprisingly inexpensive, and both the sangria and margaritas were well made. Service was fast and attentive, but needs to be noted that they were having a slow night, we have no experience of the service when busy. Note that we reserve... More

My mother is Mexican and so I grew up in Arizona eating Mexican food daily. It's very difficult to find good Mexican food in South Carolina, so I was quite pleased to find this place. My wife and I had dinner here: she had the Molcajete and I had the Chicken Fajitas. The Chicken Fajita plate was delicious; however, the... More

This is a great place for lunch if you are in Florence. Their prices are very good and you get good size portions for your buck. The staff was quick with service and smile and were very friendly. They have a very good selection on the menu of your typical Mexican fair and we each tried each other's plate and... More

Great food and service. Great price - they let you order off the lunch menu at night for just .99 more. Great for travelers who have no way to take left-overs home.

My husband and I found this restaurant by accident and with the help of Trip Advisor. We were looking for a place to eat not too far from the Florence Little Theatre. The staff at the restaurant were super friendly and helpful. The menu included a wide variety of Mexican dishes not available at other restaurants in town. My meal... More

The inside is a little nicer than the outside. We saw Vallarta on a published list of 12 best places ìn SC to get tacos. The salsa and chips were better than most places. We tried the brand new seafood fajitas which had talapia, shrimp, and scallops. It's like 16.00 but is big enough to feed 2 people. 1 person... More
