Great place for a margarita and guacamole dip!

Always make this a stop when in town for a pitcher of margaritas and a table side guacamole dip made fresh at table.

To me, this restaurant is 2nd to Pure Taqueria on chips and salsa...very fresh. They are pretty slow bringing them to the table though. I know they have had LOTS of server turnover in the last couple of years and it shows. The service is so SLOW, pretty horrible actually, even when they are slow. Was in last week for... More

I was looking for a New Mexican restaurants and have been pleased with my meals here. My last meal was my favorite ... Chicken in a skillet with grilled onions and peppers. So yummy!!! The margaritas are great and so are the chips and salsa. The chicken entrees have good cuts of white meat and good portions in general. Also... More

I really don't know what people find so special about this place. I had the mole enchiladas recommended by the waitress. They couldn't have been more bland. My husband's meal was forgettable. The margarita was from a nondescript mix. The salsa was watered down and bland. Hoping to find better Mexican food in the area.

We eat at one of the two locations in Roswell at least once a month. This restaurant participates in the Sky Dining Program which is a great benefit. We like the chips and salsa, the chips are always fresh and salsa is spicy. We usually order the same things, fajita's, taco salad, burritos or fish tacos and are never disappointed.... More

A great place for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is packed at lunch so try to get there early. The food is consistently good. The Speedy Gonzales is excellent for lunch.

We have eaten here several times at both lunch and dinner. We usually sit at a table next to the bar unless we are with a group larger than four. This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant in the area. I usually get a Poblano plate and a Top Shelve Margarita. The menus offer a wide variety of selections of... More
