The food was awesome, had to wait for table but well worth the wait. Waitress and staff very good. Had to wait for 45 min. To get food but it was well worth the wait.would go back again!

pleasant surroundings, very busy but worth the wait for a table. food is fabulous but beware you get large portions of it. however you can take home whatever is left and the staff are extremely helpful if you can't quite make out the menu. we are looking forward to eating there again on our next visit to orlando. check out...

As everyone else has said do NOT be put off by the exterior (I nearly said no to going in when we pulled up outside....) the food is delicious. Home cooked and plenty of choice. We have visited several times when on our holiday over here. We've had the chicken and steak fajitas and our fave the El Tenampa steak... More

Located outside of the "tourist zone" of all things Disney, this is a wonderful, authentic Mexican restaurant on Hwy 192 (Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy) in Kissimmee. Don't be fooled by the less than appealing exterior of this restaurant--the inside is colorful and pleasant and clean. The restaurant shares the same building as a Spanish grocery store. Filled to the brim... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for about 3 years or more. The food was awesome....where did it go? My food tasted like it was left in refrigerator😢, The beans looked like they were made earlier in week and stored in the fridge. Very disappointed!

I met a college buddy today for lunch. I actually called him and sent him a photo of the restaurant-no way this could be the place. It's tucked away with a very small parking lot next to a (great) Spanish grocery. Still not sure how he found it (he lives in Port St Lucie) We both ordered the same thing... More

This place is awesome I agree the outside is not that nice but the inside is very nice and colorful. The food is delicious and is not over priced is really great. The staff is really friendly and polite. The food took some time to get to the table but it was worth it really fresh and just perfect.

I went it this dump a couple of years back with my family, and the food and service were mediocre, at best. I decided to try it again today by myself, as it is located across the street from a tattoo shop I was getting work done at. The parking has still not improved. They have an uneven, cracked pavement... More

This place doesn't look inviting from the outside but the food inside is lovely.. My husband had the steak and cactus and I had the chicken mole which was lovely.. The staff were lovely and pleasant but the Maraichi Band hit the spot..

The outside might look bad but when you go inside its pretty nice. Food was good. Wait staff was nice and polite. No loud band or anything crazy like that. Not over priced either.
