Fast Mexican just off of 95

Meet the locals here every Friday night! Fast service, food comes out HOT! Wait staff the most efficient I've seen in a while! Margaritas are a must!

Great food and service! The white salsa is to die for! Really excellent, fast service but also a place to gather with friends and relax!

We had El Aztecas in New Jersey which were good. This one exceeds the ones in the north. We (six in our party) went a Saturday afternoon. We were expecting a normal Mexican restaurant, this restaurant was exceptional. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. Service was great.

Wife and I love Mexican food and have been to many places, and have our favorites. We thought we would try this place. Located in busy shopping center, parking can be challenging. But there is plenty of seating, and place appeared clean. Staff was nice, food was prompt. My chimi was supposed to be fried, and maybe it was but... More

I had Enchiladas Rancheras which was cheese enchiladas topped with pork, green peppers, tomatoes and onions. We used to live in Houston and know what good Tex-Mex is. This was very good. The salsa was also very good. Never thought we would find good Tex-Mex in Ashland. Friendly staff and nice decor too.

Great food, great service and great prices. Best Mexican food I've every had. The Chile relleno was amazing, and everything else was delicious as well. We are going to make this a must stop on our journeys up and down 95.

Found this place while staying at the Sleep Inn in Ashland. We were greeted and sat in seconds. Our server greeted us in seconds. He was ready for our order when we sat down but we needed a few minutes. Came back in a minute and asked if we were ready---not yet. Came back one more time and we were... More

If your going up or down I95, wait to have lunch or dinner in Ashland, Va. , exit 92. It's a little hard to find but "worth the search". Just drive past al the fast food places and turn right into a shopping center. I'll tell you this, the locals know how to find it. I stopped for lunch and... More
