This is the only sit down Mexican restaurant in Carroll. I've been here for lunch twice and have not been disappointed. The service is fast and the food is excellent. Will have to come here for dinner so I can try a margarita!

They have great Mexican food here! Fun atmosphere, all the tables, chairs & booths are decorate in bright colors of Mexican symbols. Great service. Soon as you arrive chips & salsa (hot) are served. Ask the waiter & he will bring a bowl of cheese sauce to mix with the salsa. We like being able to choose a combination plate.... More

This establishment has weathered the test of time in Carroll, Iowa. They serve what I would describe as "Midwest Mexican" food. The food is good but is aimed toward the Midwest palette and tends to be a bit on the bland side for my taste. The atmosphere is pleasant enough and the service is, for the most part, good. As...

Our family had lunch here recently. We were in town for a wedding and had one hour for lunch. Our server did not even know that and efficiently served us. The menu is large with lots of choices. There are a number of good vegetarian options. The food is fine but nothing special. The chips are good but the salsa... More

Being from Phoenix and eating GOOD Mexican food weekly, I was reluctant to try a Mexican restaurant in Iowa but the parking lot was full and we thought it must be good. Wrong!! The food was terrible but reasonably priced from the lunch menu. The most fabulous thing about this restaurant are the very colorful and interesting booths, tables and... More

The staff were helpful in accommodating a large group of us at fairly short notice, which was great. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and it`s a good place for a get together with friends and family. The food is tasty and there is a wide choice of Mexican dishes.

Our 2nd visit to this restaurant, near where we have family living. I personally am not a big Mexican food fan, but this restaurant was the group consensus! We were there around 4:00PM on a Sunday for an late lunch/early dinner so they were not extremely busy. They easily accommodated our group of 7. We had very good, fast service.... More
