Great food! Reasonable prices and service is fine also. You won't be disappointed. I had the arroz con pollo and it was very tasty.

My wife and I plan our stay in Roanoke to sleep at our favourite hotel and dine at our favourite Mexican restaurant. The drink and food are high quality and better than we have experienced at any other Mexican restaurant in Canada or the USA. One difference this year: staff turnover in the past year seems 100% and the new... More

Stopped in for a few drinks after a long day. The bartender greeted us with a smile and warm chips and salsa. Both were delicious and made us wish we'd stopped in for dinner! Margaritas were good. Friendly service!

Cashier stated food is microwaved and it still comes out cold. Rude service and argumentative cashier. Mexican food that is sub par at best.

We needed to eat something before going to bed. Nice environment with music at an adequate volume (not always the same in other restaurants). Quick and good flavor of the food. The margarita cocktail was more a lemonade than a margaritam but with an additional shot of tequila it improved.

Walked here from the Hampton Inn. Service was good and everyone was pleasant. The burrito came on a plate of bechamel, not really "cheese sauce" and certainly not "store bought" whatever that someone else mentioned in a review. The fajitas were brought on a fajita iron skillet and green pepper/onion mixture was crunchy-tender. They serve refried beans - likely you... More

Stayed here in June with my parents and there are very few choices for dinner. Ate here with my mom and it was terrible. Service was bad, food was reheated, drinks were sent back for a beer. Nothing good to say. Fast forward 5 months and end up at the same exit for a hotel. Try it again and nothing... More
