Great food, great prices

My business colleagues and I came here for dinner 2 out of the 5 nights and we were never disappointed with the food or the drinks. The owner of the restaurant was extremely nice and her staff was always attentive. I really appreciated the fact that they went out of their way to make sure we had... read more

I fell in love when I got the Presidente Margarita. The chicken was very well cooked with spinach and cheese. Chunky guacamole was very good and so was the Spanish rice. No complaints everything was great.

The margaritas here are wonderful! I enjoyed the food so much I ate here 2 days in a tow and would have 3 but went out of town before they opened for lunch! My server from first day saw me the second day and thanked me for coming back. I had the chicken Azteca and it was very good.

Our family LOVES Mexican. We love trying every Mexican Restaurant around to find our favorite. For reasons unknown, this is my in-laws' "go-to' Mexican place( and i love my in-laws!). I had to eat here with them 3 times before I finally had the guts to request eating somewhere else for Mexican every once in a while. The only thing... More

Good food and service. I got a huge margarita for $10. The chimichangas were very good and I would return again next time I'm in McDonough

I had eaten here twice prior and decided to visit again. The sweet tea was good as well as the cheese dip with jalapeno and chips. The meal, aside from the Taco, was bad. So bad that I couldn't eat it. I immediately asked for a to-go box to take the food to our dogs and commented to my girlfriend... More

I've been waiting to visit ever since I moved down the street. I love it! The service and food was amazing, prices were as expected. The chunky guacamole was delicious - I wanted to lick the bowl it was so good! There was a family seated next to us, and the staff was great with the kids. Can't wait to... More

The restaurant was very close to our hotel and we were in the mood for a margarita. Our waitress was somewhat aloof and seemed to impatient when we asked questions about the menu, which was extensive. The margies were inexpensive but weak. We ordered chicken fajitas which were good. I asked twice for some hotter salsa and the waitress never... More

This used to be one of the best Mexican restaurants in town, but it has been very bad the last two times we've been there. The food is not even up to microwave dinner standards. The salsa was too tomatoey, and lacking flavor. The fish tacos smelled like bad fish and tasted the same. The chicken in the flautas was... More
