We would have never seen this place if it wasn't recommended to us by some locals. The decor was old and the restaurant was tiny. The food was very good. We would eat here again. The super nachos were yummy and the veggie fajita was so delicious .

This is a tiny operation. I enjoyed the food more than my husband. Loved the Salsa, but the chips were a little thick. You need to know that you will be charged for the Salsa and Chips. My husband and I both got the Cheese enchiladas. It took a while to get them because she made them to order and... More

We had lunch there on a Saturday. They were very busy, it would be worth the wait. Be sure to order their homemade salsa. Also, check the board on the wall for daily specials! Our food experience was incredible. If you enjoy drinks with your meal, no alcohol!!!! We will definitely return!!!!

My wife and I happened upon this place walking by because the food smelled amazing! Everything is fresh and the salsa is homemade! Wonderful food and the people there were so much fun and personable. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return! Recommended highly to anyone looking for the only Ark-Mex joint around :)

If you can find it down a narrow stairway near the Orleans Hotel, you're in for a treat! Simple home cooked food with a Mexican slant. Very fresh and flavorful. The place is very small and has a funky vibe -- especially the bathroom, which involves stepping up to the toilet in an awkward maneuver. Not for the neat freaks,... More

We have made it a point to eat here for years for brunch. They do NOT open till 1000, though they will be nice if they are inside and its cold out, we got seated and into the great conversation about Eureka, life and how it all revolves in this switzerland of NWA. It is eclectic, it is vegetarian, mostly,... More

Don't arrive hungry. I really don't get why people are so crazy about this place. I loved the food choices (lots of vegetarian / creative items), but the wait was crazy. I heard it's usually crowded so I felt lucky that they had a table available. We were right by the door - so close that it bumped my boyfriend's... More

Try this place..teeny tiny on space, but huge on good food and value. We arrived about 1 PM--good thing so we could find a table. The locals eating there were very friendly; one clapped when she heard this was our first visit. DH had an enchilada plate and I had a burrito plate. Mine was very good; his was exceptional.... More

This little cafe, and I mean little, is one of the best kept secrets in Eureka Springs. The locals know about it and like to keep it secret so theres room for them! Celebs drop by when in town for this meal treat. Its near the top of the road, and down some stairs between some buildings, has maybe 5... More
