Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 July 2017

we were returning back from another town and happen to land this place in Boone.It had good size seating with bar. It was around 12.30 noon on Sunday and restaurant was 50% full. We ordered Margarita pitcher for 5 adults as it was better than individual drink order.
For food we ordered chicken Fajitas/vegetarian Fajitas
One combo which included special burrito,one mixed tostaguac
and one chicken enchilada.One of the person who was pure vegetarian complained about a chicken piece in her platter.But overlooking this problem food was good and even restaurant manager came and asked if food quality was to our expectations.So service was timely and good and food not so expensive for the quality of food served to us

We ate in and did take out all in one week. The fatjitas were good but needed salsa to make them perfect. My husband love his chicken dish and especially the margaritas. The regular margarita was very good, but the Organic Margarita is perfection.
I had a chicken chimichanga for take out and it has tons of perfectly cooked chicken and my husband devoured his beef enchiladas.
Why not 5 stars: Health inspection score below 93, I believe it was about a 90. Also th booth we sat in had well worn padding that needs to be replaced.

We forgot the date until we walked in the door -it was jammed! We had a 15 min wait which wasn't that bad. Had immediate chips butI was not enamored with the cheese dip. Service was prompt & courteous. Had fajitas for two but it could have fed four. Very tasty and the house hot sauce was very good add. Crazy time to go but it worked out fine.

The entry and sitting area are very nice but the food.....not so much. We stopped in about 8pm on a Saturday night. The service was slow but this may be because our waitress was busy cleaning and sweeping. The food was sub-par and my shrimp quesadilla had 5 shrimp in it! 5 SHRIMP??? I know shrimp are expensive.....raise the price if you need to, but don't bring out a "shrimp" quesadilla with 5 shrimp. My wifes chicken fajitas were more plentiful but not exceptionally tasteful. The best food on our table were the fries that came with my daughter's kids meal.

The menu selection is huge and has some unusual dishes. We like everything we have eaten there, and we have eaten there every time we go to Boone. The guacamole cart is great.
