Typical Mexican restaurant. Nice décor and food. The only thing that stands out is the salsa bar. If you are close to restaurant definitely check it out, but nothing really out of the ordinary

Not a big fan of Mexican restaurants but was pleasantly surprised. The food tasted good and the service was okay. Pricing was very economical. Not a 5 star restaurant but an economical option for a full Mexican dinner.

Excellent fresh Mexican food. Awesome Chicken soup and fresh real guacamole salad. My husband said his shrimp dish was the best. We'll return next time we're on our way on 81.

This restaurant is set in the corner of a strip mall. When I walked in the first thing I noticed was how clean it was. It is open with lots of room for large groups as well as small. The menu has a lot to choose from and chips are brought immediately. The cool thing about this restaurant is the... More

We attended this facility on a dining tour of Roanoke and just had a very light early lunch. The place was clean and small but the selection was not enough to give the place more than a fair rating. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was warn and inviting, and the location was pleasant. We were able to have... More

A huge menu of freshly prepared, authentic Mexican meals. The Burritos are enormous and delicious; the Fajitas are served sizzling and flavorful in large portions. The Poblanas dishes are amazing. The Chili Rellenos are authentic and incredibly delicious. Great kids menu as well. But the crowning touch is the unlimited and expansive salsa bar. Explore and enjoy!

Had a terrible Sunday lunch experience. Food was sent back twice and the kitchen still got it wrong. Server was entitled and had an attitude. When we asked to speak to the manager, we were informed that he was on break and yet I saw the gentleman peeking out from the kitchen on a couple of occasions afterwards. We spent... More

We've eaten at all the Mexican places in the area, and this is our favorite, for sure. Texas fajitas are a favorite. Chile Rellanos are as close to authentic as I've seen.

Traveling out of Roanoke after a visit and found this gem tucked away in a corner of a shopping center. I LOVE the salsa bar! Chips are great but the varied salsas were a wonder to try. Server was very attentive and patient with us looking over the extensive menu. I can't remember exactly what I had - crazy fajitas... More
