Service is pleasant and sincere. Food is simple and flavorful. Server and cook were happy to make a meal specific to my dietary requests. Not fancy, but authentic!

Very good Mexican food, loved the Migas! Very authentic and without a lot of mess. The Pico d Gallo was perfect, fresh and on point. Go on an enjoy the meal, get some lunch and have a flan! I will be back again and again

I've been here fairly often over the years. It just changed owners and never has it been this bad. The place was gross and really run down. The floors were really sticky and disgusting. My wife and I ordered really complicated plates. One fajita taco and one crispy taco apiece. I bit into the crispy taco and noticed a strange... More

This reminds me of all the "hole-in-the wall" Mexican food places I ate at on the road to New Mexico as a kid. Dingy, 50's decor, part of a semi-dilapidated hotel, and diner chic. I went here with someone from the Cove who knew this place; otherwise, I would have driven by it (as I've done dozens of times). This... More

My family and I eat at this restaurant several times a month. It's a small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant with great service, great atmosphere, and great food! Make sure to ask for their warm salsa.....it's amazing! This restaurant is one of the only things I'll miss about Fort Hood.

Salsa was fresh, enchiladas tasty. I ordered cactus instead of rice on the side and it was delicious! The inside of this restaurant may not be much to look at but it is clean (including the bathroom) and once you taste the food you will be glad you tried it. Price is very reasonable.

Kinda strange building ( a former Long John Silvers Restaurant). This place has the probably the best breakfast in Copperas Cove. Has really good authentic "mexican cuisine". Also has wireless internet and TV for intertainment.
