Nice little restaurant. Great service. Excellent margaritas. Fajitas were very good, beef and chicken seasoned just right. Unfortunately, vegies were almost all peppers, very little onions, and not well done as ordered. Guacamole was very good but chips a little greasy. Beans and rice excellent....More

Good Mexican food with a nice variety. Maybe best Mexican place in Big Spring and it is cute inside and better ambiance than most Mexi places in town.

We just ate there for the second time and it was good! The highlight of the place is the margaritas but the fajitas are good as well. TRY THE BIG RED MARGARITA and thank me later!

This restaurant is always packed, so we thought it would be a fantastic place to go . The Margarita was terrible, and it's really not 'authentic' Mexican food. It's one of those places that sells food that has been dehydrated or comes from a can....More

Terrible food and owner is a jerk. Tells people that dislike his food not to come back. The food was horrible. NOT authentic Mexican food. Food is flavorless, bland, boring, overcooked, old and dry.
