I recommend this Mexican restaurant because the food was great ( and huge portion!) and friendly staff. Reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. College town so lots of young people but families also.

As with most Mexicana restaurants we were seated quickly...chips, salsa and drinks came quickly. Nice beer selection. Salsa was good not overly spicy. Waiter was attentive our chip bowl, salsa and drinks were refilled. What separated this Mexican joints with others were the entrées. They were especially good. Ingredients were fresh the chicken was tender and the veggies were not... More

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Cookeville. The service here is great. Everyone is always very friendly and the food is better than average. A lot of items are still very generic and typical of "Mexican" restaurants across the USA, but they have a few dishes that stand out. The Chile Colorado is the best in town. Try them... More

As others mention, being served so quickly is concerning as to freshness, but much... More

Had time to kill before an afternoon appointment and saw this as I drove by and thought I would give it a try. I was NOT disappointed. Even though it was the lunch hour I was seated immediately. Before opening the menu complimentary chips and salsa were on the table and I was asked for my drink order. Waiter returned... More
