Had lunch with a group, which the staff handled easily, even with a lot of separate checks. Service was polite and efficient, my fajitas were good, so no complaints, and we would return again.

We were skeptical, because we moved here from a place that had authentic Mexican food that we really enjoyed. But after 1 visit, we are big fans! Everything is delicious, service is great. Yummmm!

Consistently eaten here with my friends after sports practice almost every Sunday for like 2 years. Consistent fast service and very good food. Always greeted with a smile and always made to feel welcome.

Chicken Chimichanga hit the spot; great flavor. Fajita's are very good! Queso dip is perfect with the chips. Salsa needs cilantro; chunks of tomatoes and onion would be good too. All the meals fill you up and are very good Mexican cuisine! Definitely, will be back to try other items on the menu......lots of choices.

The best thing on the menu is the cheese dip! It's so great, and can be drizzled on anything! Otherwise the food is decent, and the staff are wonderful! They're so nice, and often joke around with you, giving it charm. It's the best Mexican food in southern Maryland, but not as great as getting something in nearby Washington, D.C.

Lots of great food at a great price and a cold beer to match...what else could you want right in your neighborhood ?!?! This is a local favorite for good reason. The food is consistently good with excellent portions at a very good price. The staff is friendly and service is good. We go there often as do many of... More

Very good food especially the burritos and salsa. Everything is fresh and temp hot. They will keep asking if everything is ok and offer more food, but the food you get is lots and great. Real Mexican and very much appreciated

Been here dozens of times and not once was I disappointed in the food or service. Prices are very reasonable and portions are excellent..you won't leave still hungry. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Salsa is excellent as well... Best Mexico in So Md.

We were really excited to try this place based on reviews. The couple we walked in with raved about it too. The service was spot on, but everything else was mediocre at best. The salsa had the consistency of tomato soup, no chunks at all. The pork dish featured very square little fatty chunks in a murky sauce without much... More
