Amazing!

Staff was attentive and friendly! We had the house special with ribs, chicken, and carnitas. All the meat was tender and flavorful! Some of the best Mexican we have had!!

We were welcomed and seated as soon as we entered. Chips and salsa arrived as we read our menu. Our friendly and very attentive server was there to take our order within minutes. As we munched our chips, more salsa and fresh chips arrived! I ordered a combination plate and my husband had Carnitias. Our food was served quickly and... More

What a treat t o find this place through other Thomasville reviews. We ordered the shrimp & quail,chiles rellenos, the beef & chicken fajitas, and the enchilada dinner for the four of us. Everyone enjoyed their respective dishes and we all agreed we'd eat here again. Hot food is good food and everyone left happy. We had a great server,too.... More

Really good Mexican food. I think the best I've had in Amarillo... Or I just could be biased because they have my favorite bird quail grilled to perfection. The beans are so good, they have flavor and are seasoned. You can and want to eat them alone not to use as a paste to hold things the tortillas. I also... More

Love this place and make it a regular stop at least once a month. I've tried most of the menu and can't find anything I wouldn't recommend.

We are a family of 4 traveling through. This small local place is yummy, simple, and we got in and out & back on the road. We were all very pleased with our food.

Grilled lamb chops, grilled quail, ceviche, all Mexican style and the sauces were out of this world. Trip advisor had them rated high and that's why we went but their 94% should be higher. Only serve cold beer no margaritas but with the caliber of the food it didn't matter. A must stop in Amarillo.

Ate lunch here with my husband last week. Hot sauce isn't hot, but it's good. My fish tacos were delish. My husband loved what he ate, too. Fast, friendly service. Great Mexican food!

The margarhita's are really good here. I had at least three. The food is delicious as well. I definitely needed it to sober up some. Lol
