I am a big fan of Mexican food and frequent the KC Boulevard mainstays particularly Ponaks, (which 'IS' amazing) for sure, I have recently moved into the Smithville area and have tried this restaurant a couple of times. The net is that it is just really fresh, well made, tasty and traditional. The chips taste home made rather than out... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the Kansas City area. Really good chips and salsa and the service is always great too. They have really good fajitas also. If you choose to come here, might want to arrive a little early because the place fills up fast. They also have the tallest and coldest beers in town.... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and have always been greeted promptly with little or no wait time. The wait staff has always been extremely prompt and efficient and the food has been good every time.

The food is really good, the staff are super friendly and always the same ones so they know you when you come in, at least they welcome those of us who go there every Wednesday night for $0.99 marguerites. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This our "go to" restaurant. We visit almost once a week. The owners and staff have been consistent for many years and it has become a town favorite. Great variety of food and great service, all at a great value. If you like Mexican, it is worth a visit.

It's quite good, typical Mexican American food. Great chips and salsa. I've never met a taco I didn't like 😀🌮.

Good food with reasonable prices, but the service wasn't the greatest on our last few visits, possibly due to a full house at the time.

Great fast service. Great specials and margarita nights. Salsa could be a little spicier for our taste.

This place rates above very good, hence the E. We had a larger group and were greeted with good service and good food at an excellent price. We ordered quite a variety and the constant was: it was all good to eat, good to look at and easy on the pocket book. The drinks were more than adequate and we... More
