This restaurant is a pristine example of original Mexican food. The help is friendly, and the food is served up piping hot on a hot platter. Very good place to eat.

No matter if you go for lunch or dinner, their service is always fast, they do great you at the door, they seat you quickly (unless it is Taco Tuesday, then you might have to wait a few minutes. We have not had anything bad there. Their margerita's are good and cheap on Tuesday's for a small one. Their chimichanga... More

Completely lacked in flavor. Ordered cheese dip to go with chips, so runny it would not stay on chip. Service was okay. Had enchilada with about a tablespoon of sauce on top.

Very good fresh tacos. We went on Taco Tuesday and I would recommend the soft shell over the hard shell. I tried all the flavors of meat: pork, ground beef and chicken and my favorite was pork however they were all delicious! Very fast and friendly service!

Wonderful food, but communication is a little difficult....just confirm what you order. Easy commute from Mulberry Hill B&B

The food here is excellent, no matter what you get! They have recently started adding new menu items and the Pollo Con Queso is wonderful. I drive 20 miles to eat here every Sunday!!

In a little town with of many places to eat, this was a welcomed find. The service was prompt, and the staff authentic. The food, though, while ok, was nothing to write home about. I would go again, but probably only because of a lack of other good options. Reasonably priced.
