Great service, awesome margaritas, and friendly staff. I usually get enchiladas but they have an extensive menu! Absolutely delicious and my favorite Mexican restaurant in Tahlequah.

I'm picky about my Mexican food and one thing I don't like is the thick, white cheese sauce on top of my enchiladas. It's too sweet or something-I just don't care for the taste. If you like that type of sauce, then you'll like this food. It's just not my favorite. I had 3 enchiladas- one cheese, one beef and... More

Food is always good and a great price! The servers are the best, I'm a regular there, and I'm always treated like family. The margaritas are the Best around.

Stopped in for dinner while most of the other restaurants in town were without power due to a storm. The service was excellent and the food was just as great, even though they were swamped with customers. They definitely held up nicely on a Sunday evening when I'm sure they were expected to be slow. If you're looking for mexican... More

I've had a molcajete at one other place, and it was 30 bucks, and almost as good. Granted it was larger, but the one here has sooo much more meat. And, it was only 11 bucks. A freakin bargin. If you like Mexican food, stop by here, you won't regret it.

The food is pretty good here although you should watch your step! I've been here twice and each time the floor in the dining room past the cash register and to the right is slick! As in greasy slick. As in your feet slide when u try to walk so you kind of end up walking like a goat on... More

We had dinner there one night and the service was quick and attentive...the food came out quickly but the only downside is it lacked a lot of flavor...seemed mostly bland

This was recommended to us by the hotel desk clerk, and he did not do us wrong. The food was good Mexican fare, but the margaritas were outstanding. Not just good, but the best price I ever remember seeing for a schooner size. And the menu prices were good, a bargain for what we usually spend for dinner. Just what... More
