Offers way more options than usual Mexican cafe. Portions were huge. Good attentive service - and server was very accommodating with special requests.

I stay in Merced for work regularly and always eat here at least once during my stays. I'm not big on buffets but theirs is pretty good and the menu is as well. It's family owned and I am always treated like family. I never run out of food, drink or smiles. It's across the street from the Holiday Express,... More

Recommended to us by the staff at the Hampton and they were not wrong in doing so. We opted for the Dinner Buffet and there was no restriction on quantity or choice. Good friendly helpful staff. Recommended and don't be put off by the dark outside.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Merced which was safe, clean, & comfortable. They suggested the restaurant across the street. We were exhausted from traveling so we hit the buffet. It was fabulous. Hit the spot. Great & friendly service. Would highly recommend.

The food was very good, but the building itself inside is in need of a major cleaning. The service staff was very courteous and friendly. The prices were fair market value. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends

This place is a wonderful find in Merced. It seems to be run by a family still and it has that family vibe. Good food, good prices, good service. This is one of those mom and pop places you need to go to.
