I had to track some one down to get a refill of a drink. Then wife ordered shrimp fajitas and the lady wrote it down but she got... More

Great service, great margaritas and reasonable prices. Nothing fancy but food is worth going. We have visited lots of Mexican restaurants in this area and this is for sure the best.

This restaurant is right down the street from us. The food is great and the price is so affordable. Their queso is the best in town. I highly recommend this little gem.

Friendly staff and a spotless tables is the first thing you will notice. They have an extensive menu to chose from for lunch and dinner.

Seating is spacious, plenty of table room. Each table... More

Stopped in for dinner traveling back to SW Virginia. Picked from TA based on reviews. Good portions and good fare to cure road hunger. Many others must agree because despite plenty of seating on the bar was open on Friday night which was fine by me.

Daytrip to Haymarket before a wine tour and needed to find a good restaurant. Conveniently located downtown with plenty of parking. Love the warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa. Chicken chimichanga was excellent and cheese enchiladas were spiced perfectly.

The food was bland. We had hoped for more flavor, given the number of positive reviews we'd read. The atmosphere wasn't very personal, either. If you're looking for a place that pleases a more basic pallet, this is a good way to go, but if you're looking for better spices and flavors, there are other locations in the area that... More
