Oh man!! What a find for Mexican Food and you do not have to go South of the border. Lots of choices and priced right. You can taste the freshness of the dishes and our group shared bites so we could see how good each selection was. Many choices of drinks in this excellent eating place.

Food was really good, and they have a nice bar. Staff were very nice and did a great job. The owner or manager just stands in the back and watches everything, it kind of made me feel weird. I kind of felt sorry for the staff.

We're here visiting family and wanted something different but too late for many other restaurants. We took the chance based on other reviews and were pleasantly surprised.

It is located on HWY 62 East and College (strip mall behind KFC). Our family eats here every Sunday after church. Lunch choices vary from week to week, but ALL their food is home made. They make their own tortilla chips and salsa, roll their own tamale's and make excellent enchaliates. If you are not hungry, Don't Go! Because the... More

This is one of the few places that serves the same quality food over and over again, they are fast if your limited on time but never hurry you out the door. Love this place, great food, service and right in the middle of town.

I'v heard some bad things about the employees but I wanted to try it out because mexican food is my favorite. The salsa was my least favorite because it seemed caned. The overall food was pretty good but not the best.
