We make it a point to stop and eat here every year we visit, it's a family tradition. We stumbled upon this restaurant a few years ago and were very happy we did. Food is always out fast and on point. Service is excellent.

There is a full page of lunch specials to choose from plus drink specials. Service was very good and efficient. The chips and salsa arrived as soon as we were seated. The side order of Guacamole was on the small side for the $3.99 price and not as thick as we prefer. The chicken fajitas were a generous portion and... More

I'm really picky with Mexican restaurants but this one was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to!!! So much flavor in everything! It's also really cheap!

Not a lot of places open in January in Myrtle beach but this was. It was close to our resort so we tried it out. Very good service because it wasn't very busy. Margaritas were average but the food was good. Huge serving of fajitas. We had enough to take home and have for another meal.

We were not impressed with the food and the service was horribly slow. There was a sign that said please pay your server however when we were ready to pay and leave our server was nowhere to be found. It took us 20mins to pay.

We love Mexican so when some employees at our hotel told us of this great Mexican restaurant we were so excited to try it out but unfortunately we're very disappointed once we got there. The food was okay A little Bland but they do have good drink specials. From 4 to 7 pm have 2.99 margaritas and 3.99 beers

Called into this place on a whim. I've always loved Mexican food and I'm pleased to say it did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and our waiter was superb. The food was excellent and authentic. I was surprised when the bill arrived as I initially thought they had missed off some of the food. It was really reasonably... More

We had a delightful visit with Natalie, the student from Colombia living and working in Myrtle Beach for the summer. I wanted to like the food, but really I didn't enjoy the greasy, run-of-the mill Mexican food. If you would miss the fresh greens, tomatoes etc. as much as I did, you could do better somewhere else.

Outstanding authentic Mexican food. We came here because it was 7pm Saturday, with no reservations, a hungry family and traffic was jacked up. El Cerro Grande happened to be right there. What a great stroke of luck. The food was excellent. we haven't had better Mexican entrees. My wife got a pork chimichanga and I got the cowboy chimichanga. I... More
