Some friends and I decided to meet in Kokomo for lunch and a quick look at TA got us to this place. First of all, it is very difficult to find. Small place in a non-descript strip mall with only a truck as a billboard parked out front. After finding the place I ordered the Tamale lunch special. The Tamales... More

Stopped while driving by on 31. Got the enchilada lunch special. Very good with chicken and cheese. Definitely home style. Nice and spicy. Service very good. I would show you a photo but I ate it already.

Also known as Mexican Grill, this place is fabulous. Clean establishment, friendly waitstaff, and delicious food! Walk in have a seat and you will soon have a smiling face ready to assist you with your order. Definitely a real find in Kokomo!

Super clean, very nice staff, excellent food! This is a keeper. I'm surprised that I haven't been there before now. Will be going back often. I had the wet chicken burrito that wasn't on the menu and my husband had the crispy chicken taquitos.

I ate here based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Very good food and the guy who took our order was very friendly. You order at the counter and they bring it out to the table. They have menus and I took mine to the table and studied it a bit before ordering. I ordered the Milchori torta which... More
