I'm not in Greensboro often, but whenever we are THIS is the place I want to go. If I lived nearby, I'd be a regular. Service and food are fantastic every time, everything is very reasonably priced. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

This was my first visit to this restaurant which is halfway across town but I wanted to give it a try due to the great TA reviews. My three person order was ready for an on-time pickup. The staff are very friendly. My order was ready upon arrival so by the time I got home the food was still very... More

The setting is an unassuming plaza along a busy road, but the food and atmosphere inside were well beyond what I expected. Excellent food, attentive service, reasonable prices -- and very busy with locals and us road trippers alike. Parking looks like a potential problem, as we saw some patrons trotting across the highway from the shopping center across the... More

One of the best mexican restaurants that I have eaten at. Try it, you will find a new favorite for your... More

I was traveling back from Charlotte and was in the mood for some GOOD mexican. The reviews I seen were good, so I made the stop. As others have noted, the parking lot is very small as well as the resturant. The service was great and the food was fantastic. This is not your typical Mexican resturant and you will... More

My husband and I tried this place because of its rating on Tripadvisor. If we hadn't seen the reviews, we never would have stopped here because of the location - in a tiny strip mall in an out of the way part of town. The food was DELICIOUS and reasonably priced. Many bottled beers and drinks to choose from. Our... More

This is our go to Mexican food restaurant. Everything is so good and tastes very fresh. The veggies to not taste like anything from frozen. The corn tortillas are made on site. We loved the mixed drinks as well.
