Authentic Mexican Food

This restaurant was recommended to me by a local resident, so we stopped by for a quick lunch. It was very flavorful and authentic. The place was not much to look at but don't let that fool you..the food was great!

This is our second visit to this restaurant for dinner since our first while vacationing last year. We felt a bit let down with the bland flavor this time. Service was fast. Price on point with the area. Seemed to be busy for a Thursday night. Maybe they had an off night tonight. Just can't get over the bland flavor.... More

My husband and we're looking for Mexican. We found this place because it was within walking distance from our RV. (1 mile) I am so glad we came here. Seems like the place where the locals go. Fish tacos were $0.99. We got the grilled fish tacos. So yummy! I will be back.

We chose this restaurant because it was across the street from our hotel. I ordered the shrimp fajitas and they were the best I've ever eaten. They did not skimp on the huge shrimp and for once, there were more bell peppers than onions. The restaurant was nice and cozy, the prices great and service terrific. Will definitely be back.

I came here for an early dinner. The place seemed to be waiting for us because by the time we left it was packed. Our server was so nice and funny. He seemed to be happy to be there. Everyone was great!! I told him I couldn't decide between a Mango or Jalapeno Margarita and he said, "How about I... More

We went for an early lunch and beat the crowd. Sat outside on the patio, not much to look at being roadside with the Bear Creek Lodge across the street. The service was a bit spotty, quick on the initial setup, medium on the drink ordering and service. A few larger parties showed up and that really slowed things down.... More

The outdoor tables, crowded, lively place turned into a very long wait and mediocre food. The service was slow but it could have been because it was a busy Sunday afternoon. Our waitress was super sweet but did not refill our chips. The food was bland. I ordered two chicken tacos and couldn't find the chicken. The others in our... More

We ate there 2 times just to give it a fair chance. $1 shredded beef tacos were flavorless mush / fish tacos were rotten / spoiled. We were charged 1.50 for a TINY guacamole and $1 for a TINY side of ranch. They kept taking our 1/2 full chips to refill and then charged us $1 for each refill -... More

A varied menu and great service. The owners are there to make sure you are happy and we always are. The salads and authentic Mexican dishes are freshly made and delicious. Great salsas too.

The food was pretty good. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot and we got there just before it got crowded. The restaurant was very clean, had a good salsa bar, and the service was excellent.
