Great Mexican in orange park

We go hear fairly often. Service always decent and food is always good. The fajitas are very good. Much better than la napolera!

Our water was extremely friendly and responsive to my daughter. The chips and salsa were fresh and tasty. We ordered Fajita Nachos and the Super Burrito. We were both very satisfied with our meal.

There was a time- 30 years ago- when a Mexican restaurant with many combo options was a great find. A lot has been done with authentic Mexican cuisine since then. This is 30 years ago. Warm beer, old dry lime. A chile relleno (basic) is a roasted poblano pepper with a filling, then dipped in batter and pan fried; Mine... More

Been going here for about 10 years off and on. It gets worse every time. Our last visit...which is definitely our LAST visit... was not worth it. Service was very slow, food was not hot ( even though the server used huge potholders?). The chips were stale, tortilla not cooked and worst of all... beer was warm. They need to... More

A play-by-play of our night. The little man who sat us was adorable. Very sweet and nice. Our waitress came to our table about 10 minutes after we sat down and asked for our drink orders. Another 5 minutes later, she came, gave us our drinks and we ordered. After that, she didn't come back to our table for another... More

I happen to be in the neighborhood so I decided to try Allapatchee restaurant. I went during the week right at noon time and it was only two other people in the whole place, I soon figured out why. The "relleno" wS nothing but ground beef and some chopped chilis with melted queso on top. The rice was crunchy and... More

The waitress who was on her second day was wonderful. The owner is terrible. He wants to charge you for water and over charge you for special of beer and he has posters hanging up promoting the special. The food was just okay nothing authentic I was suppose to have mushrooms on mine that were missing. Food was not hot... More

We have been trying for a few months to find a good Mexican restaurant near Starke/ Gainesville that has real Mexican food, not chain. I believe we found it. This dining experience was a good one. The menu is chocked full of variety, reasonably priced and good service. The pre meal salsa and chips were outstanding, chips fresh and salsa... More

Ate dinner here after finding the geocache outside the restaurant. We had dinner with my brother and his wife and we spent around 38 dollars for dinner before tip. The staff was very friendly and quick service. Food was good and they have vegetarian options. I would go back.

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. They have excellent food and service. We have been so many times, they know us by heart and what we want to order. Food is always hot and portions are very good for the price.
