Really enjoyed the Chili Rellenos and Taco soup. I like authentic family owned Mexican restaurants, but this is a close second.

I meet friends and co-workers here a couple of times a month. The happy hour bargains are always great, and the staff has always been friendly!

Our party of 4 got there a bit early so we could get back in time to watch a football game on TV. The place was already jumping and very busy but we were seated quickly. It was in a middle table in the middle of the dining room. Personally, I think they could lose one table and provide a... More

What started with confusion ended with great food and service recovery!!!!! We were seated in the bar, requested booth and told no, yet 1 empty only needed busing. Sat for 10 minutes without anyone speaking to us and the place was cleaned out from lunch. Anyway, Lindsay noticed we were not being attended to, listened to our complaints, and ensured... More

On the Border off Chenal Parkway offers hot out-of-the-oven dishes... my favorite being enchiladas and black beans on the side with added fresh onions and jalapeños, especially when they're endless! My wife love the chimichanga and also the... More

Sampler, empanadas and white cheese dip. Consistently wonderful. Always more than enough food! Salsa can be hotter or milder at your request. The N Little Rock location is the best. Ask for Conner, he is the greatest. Marlin the manager is very receptive to suggestions and eager to please.

First time visit and pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere and food quality. Enjoyed the enchiladas. Be sure and ask for Kristie! She went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. She took the time to engage in conversation with a genuine passion that she enjoyed serving us. Always love the complementary queso but you wont find it... More
