The waiters were both very rude and when I tried to talk to them in Spanish they pretended they didn't understand me. The taco salad was awful: the salad was wet and the beef meet seemed like the one cookes in the primary school canteen! Definitely avoid this place!!!

This was typical Mexican cuisine, and it was good. My son's taco however was lacking in flavor. Overall this was good food and a friendly staff

I came in here for a drink before my plane left. I like this restaurant! The staff was very friendly and helpful, even though I just came for a drink. There was a large group of men eating across from me and the food smelled delicious! I wish I had more time to have eaten a meal here, haha! Several... More

This is your place. Good Mexican food and at great prices. It can get real busy especially at lunch, but definitely worth stopping in

The restaurant was very busy, but the service was great! Table side guacamole is the best! A great place to eat if you're in Lynchburg.
