Excellent

This is one of the few Tex-Mex restaurants that stand out in Amarillo. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. Everything tasted fresh. Everyone was friendly. Makes you kind of glad that you spent your money there. We will definitely be back.

This local hole in the wall type place had some of the best Mexican I've ever eaten! I had poblano pepper and my wife had spinach enchiladas.

We had driven from Las Vegas, NM visiting a lot of Route 66 historic attractions so it was a very enjoyable but longish day so after checking into our Hotel we just wanted something tasty and close by to where were staying as we were tired. After looking at Trip Advisor reviews of local restaurants we decided to go Mexican.... More

We were driving through Amarillo and stopped here because we were in the mood for Mexican food, and we read the good reviews on TA. We were not disappointed! The queso fundido was outstanding--almost a meal in itself! The special for the day was the enchilada plate, and we both loved our selections. The service was outstanding, the prices very... More

Would be 5 stars except for posole. Every time that I've ordered the posole. I've gotten fat pork soup. Mostly just pork and a lot of it. You cannot hardly find the hominy. I finally asked the waitress about it and she said that's how they make it. Never had anything like it ever and I've eaten tons of it.... More

I enjoy family owned restaurants so I had to give this a try. I had the lunch special. The food was good but not exceptional. The service was decent. I'd say give it a try. You may enjoy it more than I did.
