Food great. Margarita's excellent. We go very often. What we like is we can ask them their opinion on a dish and if it can be made differently. They can switch out meat, sauces, etc... and make it a completely different dish.

Good and fast and I recommend the pitcher of margaritas. Our favorite server is Nancy she is really good. My kids really like to go here and it is a good value for the food you receive. We split the Fajita's and it enough with the chips and salsa you get.

We both had burritos. I had the dish with several, including chicken, cheese, beef. My husband's was shrimp. He really like his, mine was no different than I get at other Mexican places. Service was excellent. Prices reasonable.

If we're in Wooster and want Mexican food, this is the place we go. The food is great, service is fast and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. I typically get fajitas, and the portion is very generous. We also love their fresh salsa and always get a big bowl of queso.
