This was a great place to eat at one time. I returned after a year's absence and was shocked. The restaurant is filthy. There is furniture, carpet, bathrooms, tables, chairs all in need of cleaning and renovation. The place is an absolute shambles. The drinks were watery. The food was cold and the service just as bad as everything else.... More

Sought out this restaurant after a coworker from Mexico said it was his favorite eatery in Hot Springs. Approaching from the east we drove past it, as it is tucked away in the corner of a shopping center. As we entered, we were greeted by friendly staff and were immediately seated. Martin, our waiter delivered menus and took drink orders.... More

We have eaten here several times. Never been disappointed in the food. The staff are always friendly and it is clean. The only thing I dislike is they don't have coke products so it is nothing for me or water. But the food is worth it.

I've eaten here a few times now. The food has been good and they give you plenty of it and the service is good. It is kind of run of the mill Mexican restaurant, but that's what I wanted.

We were very impressed with the great food and great staff. They accommodated my picky three year old and were so nice to us. We had fajitas, tacos, enchiladas and the shrimp cocktail. For a party of 4 plus a toddler, the prices were good too. We will definitely be going back!!

Went to this location because the group I was meeting planed it there. I arrived a little later than the others along with a few others in the group. We sat at the end of the table and waited 17 minutes for the waitress to even bring us menus and get our drink orders. I ordered a 3 enchilada dinner... More

The food is decent, and terribly inconsistent. This is no longer my "go to" Mexican restaurant in town. The last few times I have been in, I have received terrible service from the front counter, and take out orders have taken 20-30 minutes past the time they said they would be ready, with no apology. Save your money, and try... More

Wait staff is friendly. Food is good, waiter told me everything is made from scratch and it tasted fresh to me. Chips are thin and crispy, not greasy. I like their cheese enchiladas with red sauce, tamales and chilli rellanos. Well, I might like everything else too but this is what I keep ordering!
