Good family experience! Tortillas and salsa munching was really good as we examined the menu. Food good, not particularly the best Mexican ever, but very enjoyable! Value good, service was excellent.

Ate here and really liked it. They have very good food and the chips and salsa are good as well. They also have very reasonable lunch specials. Our service was great, we will return.

If you want great food and excellent service, this is the place to be. Food was fresh and hot and our waiter, Romo, was very attentive. We go to this restaurant every time we come to Tyler and it always exceeds our expectations. Great job!!!

I love their food! Get the "pick two" lunch special for only $6.99. Nice wait staff. Their cheese enchiladas are fantastic, but their tomatilla sauce will lite you on fire!
