These guys have been in business for at least 23 year. A family-run restuarant and loved among locals, this family originally from Guadalajara Mexico, know what they are doing! The food is the closest to what I usually eat at home, when I visit Mexico. You can't miss if you are looking for delicious Mexican food.

After eating enough seafood during our stay in Kitty Hawk, we ventured into an attractive Mexican restaurant with some reservation about what we would be served. Surprises all around! The four of us sampled various familiar Mexican lunch specials. Everything was delicious and plentiful. I agree with others that there was a lunch crowd, even during the off season, but... More

Good, fast (not too fast) Mexican food. Served by friendly staff, with a basket of fresh chips and always good salsa. You can tell it is fresh, as sometimes there is heavier hand with the hot stuff and onions. Best cheese enchiladas I have ever had, still trying to pry the recipe out of them. Husband likes the burritos--a lot,... More

We were greeted with a warm inviting smile as we entered. Even though the restaurant was full we were seated promptly & our waiter was very entertaining & attentive all dinner! The menu provided quite the selection. We shared 3 different entrees & all were served hot & very delicious! Of course they knew how to mix very tasty margaritas!... More

The restaurant is clean and the staff are very friendly. The food was average and needs more flavor. Prices are about average for a Mexican restaurant. My wife had tacos and they were well prepared and generously loaded with chicken. I had a taco salad that was also generously loaded with ingredients. The salsa was very good.
