If you are looking for a good mexican meal, many home town peeps love to frequent this restaurant that has been around for many years. We recently visited there on a Friday evening around 5:30 pm. We were seated immediately and served by a very friendly waiter. While I tried the chimichanga and burrito, my partner had one of the... More

The restaurant was very busy, but our party of 3 didn't have to wait longer than 20 minutes to be seated. The portions were very large and each of us were very satisfied with our food, and the price seemed fair for the amount of food we received. If you like Mexican food and are in the area, I would...

Probably some of the best Mexican food I've had north of the Red River. Large portions, including a large Dos XX's amber draft. I'd go back.

This is one of the best Mexican Restaurants we have ever visited. The place is owned and run by a great family. DAD and his three sons really make this a enjoyable experience. The food is excellent and they make some great marguerita's, as well as many other drink specials. We make sure we stop here anytime we are passing... More

just good quality food. The chips are the best and the prices are very reasonable. It is an easy walk from the Fairfield Inn hotel. We love to go there with friends

You can't ask for a better run family business. Great food, service and the best margarita in town. The Cadillac has been a staple of their drink menu, but don't let too many go down before you enjoy the Carne Asada steak! Enjoy and spread the word!

Coming from California where we have excellent Mexican food, I am not sure what I was expecting. The chips were actually quite tasty, though the salsa was watery. The margarita was nasty - way too sweet - and I couldn't finish it. I had chili rellenos ($9.25) which were decent, but the olla beans (pinto beans?) were actually delicious. My... More
