We were on the road and staying at a local inn. This was close by and decided to give it a shot. The chips and salsa were a disappointment. Very little flavor, tasted like crushed tomatoes with a little garlic. The chille rellenos were sliced green peppers instead of poblanos so we avoided those... read more

We recently moved to Ocala from the west coast and have experienced some very good Mexican food but this was on the level of a Taco Bell minus the Margaritas. The beans and rice seemed to come out of the same can as most chain places we've been to. My wife and I ordered two different but similar meals,(can't remember... More

I love Mexican food but this was only okay. The atmosphere was just okay but the margaritas were great.

Today, now, we decided to have an after dinner liqueur " Cointreau" and ask the server by name. She brings generic, bartender disrespectfully grabs the bottle fashioning a pourer and says it is Cointreau. Anybody with bar knowledge knows it is cloudy white, not crystal clear....UNETHICAL plus charging clients for brand!!!!

Stopped by on our way thru town. The enchiladas were very good. The salsa was spicy - just the way we like it. Service was pleasent and extremely quick which is good for a restaurant just off an interstate exit. Will definately return when driving thru Ocala.

I had the enchilada combo #1. The brown gravy over the enchiladas was delicious. My husband had the steak burrito which was more than he could finish. We'll definitely stop here again while traveling.

Great authentic Mexican food. Pretty large portions you won't leave hungry. Large bar area & happy hour specials. Free chips & salsa as soon as you sit down. you will enjoy the food & atmosphere. If you are having a birthday. You have been warned, They celebrate with really loud birthday music & a whip cream pie to the face...
