We read about this place and went there fortunately. Our first clue was that a number of local people were there eating diner. It is a clean well kept restaurant with authentic and very excellent Mexican food. It is off the beaten track but easy to find. The servers were very pleasant and the... read more

We went here based on these reviews, and sadly disappointed. We ordered chicken burritos which included the worst flavorless chicken with nasty extra pieces...the tortilla wasn't even folded right. The server was friendly but never returned to fill our drinks. Chips tasted store bought but the salsas were good. Won't be returning, Mi Casa which is nearby is 100 times... More

Menudo 🍜 My favorite. Wish it wasn't 13 bucks. .. But oh well...worth it....they have 3 dips with the chips they give you. The red sauce, oh hawt dang!😈 Spicy! The verde, is delish. Then you also have the bean dip! Boyfriend got tacos which were decent size! He could only eat one! Wish they had real Horchata! ; (... More

We read about this restaurant today while out geocaching, and it was our top pick for a late dinner. We snagged an outside table and had a beer, then ordered chicken enchiladas verdes. Excellent food and service, friendly staff. We felt welcome and at home. I can't recommend this place enough.

This little restaurant may not have the best curb appeal, but oh my the food is so good!!! Don't judge it by the exterior. The family that runs it is super friendly , the service is very good and the food can't be best !!! We've tried every Mexican restaurant in Mountain Home and this is the best !!!

This is one of those restaurants that when you walk in, you know it's going to be very good or very bad. Lucky for us, it was very good. Very pleasant service, and the food was delicious. I had chile rellenos and a tamale and my husband had fajitas. All fresh, homemade, and very reasonably priced. We were just passing... More

The salsa was very good, and the waitress was very friendly. The chips were cold and not really fresh. The food was pretty good, but the restaurant itself was more like a bar. It wasn't really inviting. The menus had food stuck to them which is kinda gross. There was a guy who came and asked us how our food... More
