Good food and great service!

We walked in and were the only ones in the place. We weren't sure how it would be, but the service was great! The food was cooked well and although a little bland it was very good. The chips and salsa were very tasty and all you could eat. Great location in town!

You can sit inside or at the sidewalk tables outside, we chose to sit outside and enjoy the view. The food was very good and all of enjoyed it. The pricing... More

We enjoyed patio dining after a day of hiking. The proximity to the river and to downtown Helen provided a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed people-watching while dining. We liked the chips and salsa and the bean dip covered with queso was delicious (and was served very hot). All of our food was good (and hot). Our waitress was attentive and... More

Would have been better off at Taco Bell. Ordered an enchilada and chalupa for me and my boyfriend to share because we were not that hungry. The beef tasted like dog food. The guacamole at the top of the "chalupa" was like baby vomit. We were so hungry that we pouredthe watered down salsa all over the rice and beans... More

Very nice atmosphere and great Mexican Style food. The portions are large and taste is fabulous. Sit outside if the weather is nice. That is what we did. The wait staff was very attentive and kept up with our needs very well.

This place is great! The food seems to be more authentic than most Mexican restaurants. If you go (and like spicy food), get the Camarones a la Diabla...you won't regret it
