The small restaurant has some of the best Mexican food we've ever had. The soft shell corn tortillas are authentic as is the seasoning and preparation of their tacos. For those who prefer something besides tacos, their chicken wrap is also exceptional. Amazing Mexican food!

The sopapilla's are excellent! The menu is mainly Mexican with American available for those non-mexican foodies. The fare, while good, is pretty standard. The prices are average for a dine in Mexican restaurant. Not exactly "fine" dining, but the atmosphere is nice for a small town.

Good green chili, not overly spicy for those that can't handle spice. Daughter loved her chicken strips. There is a Pokémon go station at the restaurant.

Now I see why lots of business lost to... More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick mexican food dinner. We weren't disappointed. There aren't many options for restaurants in this area and since we have eaten here before, we knew it would be good. Service was great as was the food.

Varied menu, and all the food we ordered was tasty and authentic. Their salsas were good and spicy too. A group of firemen came in while we were there and you know they are always food afficionados, so we know we made a good choice. Service was fast and restaurant was clean and nicely decorated, not overdone as some Mexican... More

Food was fine but the antique phone ringing most of the time we were there and the entire restaurant having just one waitress (with a bad leg) meant slow or no refills on anything without requesting them.

Very good restaurant, been coming here for years. Good food and good people. My wife normally gets the chicken fajitas, I have had most of the combo plates. Zappy burger is a mountain of food. Not overly spicy but never bland. Daughter loves the kids meal for chicken strips.
