Best flavor in Berea. Very good salsa. Service is okay depending on your server. But overall very good place to eat close to home

When I have time or my friends want to walk up the hill to get food we usually stop here. Its a really chill environment and the food is very good. The employees are really nice and sweet to talk to.

The service was well worth the amount that was paid for the food. I have to admit that the Margarita was served perfectly & the taste of the food reminded me of some of the homemade Mexican dinners I've made.

Have always found the food to be tasty, and hot, no matter what I order.. It is always clean, service is quick and respectful. Last item we ordered was their rib eye steak, very tender and good proportion

Went here for lunch with my oldest son and youngest son last Saturday. This place is cheap looking - bordering on tacky. Obviously the place was hastily thrown together with very little imagination and very little expense. Service was prompt as there were only 3 other people in the place. Food was your typical American-Mexican fare. Plates, silverware and napkins... More

The service was great. Food was great. quick turn around. Fried ice cream was a treat to eat. Ask for more chocolate though.

Excellent Mexican food at reasonable prices. The staff is friendly. I always come here when I crave Mexican food. It is good for lunch or dinner and very fast. I never have to wait long. Berea has recently become moist, but I don't think they serve alcohol at present. I heard they were applying for a license though.

Yes, I admit it. As the title says, the queso, salsa, and chips keep me coming back. It's basic, but very satisfying. I have tried a few things from there like the nachos (not my favorite, but not bad), tacos (pretty standard - nowhere I've gone to in KY makes them like I'm used to, which is a fried tortilla...

The food is very good and the portions are very adequate. Service is quick and friendly. The atmosphere is that of small and hometown - you'll generally see someone there you know if you're from Berea. It is a quick and enjoyable walk from the Berea College campus for lunch.
