Great food at great prices

We were at Kissimmee for a conference. We ended up at this place just randomly for dinner one night. We were in a group of 13. The restaurant was pretty crowded when we got there but since we had called ahead, they had our table ready. Everyone in our group LOVED the food. In fact, we went back for... read more

After moving to Kissimmee and missing Mexican food, especially 'Street tacos' this place fits the bill. Nothing bland here...they even had green habenero sauce! I had the carne asada tacos...meat was tender and tasty with onions and cilantro. Fresh homemade flour and corn tortillas came with the shrimp fajitas which were juicy and very tasty but a little too greasy...the... More

Went last night with our family of 6 adults and 4 children and everyone enjoyed it immensely. A little tranlastion problem with the menu but staff was willing to take time to explain choices to you (I.e. the combo 2 meant you could have 2 of the 4 items offered :) When we arrived around 5 the place was busy...

You know the food is good and authentic when you're about the only "gringo" in the place! The restaurant just feels like the real deal...and the food didn't disappoint. Started with the chips and salsa,which were good although the chips tasted just a tad stale. Main entree was the steak fajita's...with a generous serving of steak, pico de gallo, fried... More

I am not an expert on Mexican food but it was very good. The restaurant was packed with all types of people, white, black and Spanish. The margaritas were very good and did not taste like they were made from stock mix but rather fresh made. There was a good variety of food and portions were large. There was even... More

This place was a VERY pleasant surprise!! Well DONE!! We tried several items and were very happy to find it was REAL Mexican food. We will be returning very soon to try... More
