Good friendly Service, Fresh food

Good quality mexican food which was extremly good in price! Few beers, 2 meals were just over $25. We went before 6 but you could see it was a locals favourite Staff were extremely friendly, and ensured you were always out first. Id return if I went back to Hiawassee

Service was fine, salsa was good. Main course was blahh.....just so so. Our group of four was asked to rate their meal 1-10 and all agreed, food never made it over a 5 in any of the four different plates....

This place has some of the best Mexican food I've eaten - we always stop here if we're in the north Georgia mountains! They have some interesting specialties, but the best part is that everything is just really good - well cooked, well (and not over) seasoned, fresh--just good.

Having just visited Cancun last month, my expectations for Mexican food in the states is not that high. Oh my, this one far exceeded my expectations! Many choices, great variety, and excellent meal. The flan... Oh gracias!

Very good food that is consistent. Usually good service as well. Good prices, varied menu, and something for everyone. Can't go wrong here. Try the soup or pepita.

We were surprised to find pretty good Tex-Mex at this remote location. The veggie fajita was good as was the black bean salad.
