Stopped for lunch before the final 30 minute drive to home. Got seated and served right away. Chips were warm and salsa was tasty. Both meals were wonderful and not expensive. Will return in the future.

This restaurant is in a good location right off the highway and across the street from a hotel so great for travelers. We felt welcomed and were seated quickly despite having a large group. The food was quite good but nothing spectacular.

Worst Tex Mex I've ever eaten. And I've eaten A LOT. The queso tastes like fake canned cheese. The chicken had no flavor and tasted like it had been in the refrigerator for 2 days and heated up in the microwave. I was really looking...More

Three restaurants have the same name in the area. The oldest one in Waco seems better. For those who eat a lot of Mexican food, I doubt this would rate more than average.
