This place really packs them in. The food is very authentic Mexican. You must have a margarita and then the fried ice cream.

Hi, sorry for my delayed response. I am not sure if they will take a reservation, my understanding is because they're always so crowded, they normally don't. But, call them and ask them.

I don't know if it was ever named "Eat Here" but there is a large sign that says that and you can see it from the highway. The sign is actually in their parking lot.
