Family owned and managed. Good basic Mexican-american food. When you don't want to cook there is two places to get reasonably priced healthy home cooked food; that is Mexican or Chinese food and We all have a favorite place. Ours is Guadalajara since we feel like family there and Peking City on Great Neck rd. They not only know what... More

I'm not sure if this is the same place, as the addresses don't seem to match. The one I am referring to is off of Shore Drive, which intersects with Great Neck, so I'm going to assume we're talking about the same place. If so, I would not suggest eating here. I came here this past weekend with my boyfriend... More

I have been coming here for a little over 2 years. They have recently re-done their menus and added a section for street tacos. I am so glad they did, this is now my to go to order when I visit. The food is fast, so don't expect 5 star Mexican cuisine, but it is always good.

We have been enjoying this place for over 10 years. The food is good and the margaritas can't be beat! Adolfo and his family are like an extended family and provide great service. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant and a good value.

This local chain used to be the go-to for Mexican, but has steadily gone downhill every year for the last 5. Not bad Margaritas, but a bit pricey.

This shows the wrong address - they moved across the street to 2916 Shore Dr Virginia Beach, VA 23451. Years ago it was a good Mexican restaurant when in the larger building. Now its a shadow of its former self. Atmosphere - LOUD - bar crowd is on top of the dining area - had to yell to my wife... More

Have several locations, I have eaten at the one on Shore Drive as well as the one at Hilltop. Food Ok...not my favorite choice for Virginia Beach Mexican. The do have an awesome Chicken soup which is very tasty...service depends entirely who the server is and can vary from poor to average. Not the best choice.

I love Mexican food and this did not disappoint! We had dined there several years before and I sought it out again because I remembered its excellence. Great food, friendly staff, very clean, nice location. And God love them, they even brought my son ice when he banged his head off the table and gave himself a black eye!

Thank Spring S
