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.

We make this one of our regular stops when in Carroll and in the mood for Mexican fare and atmosphere. The meals are always delicious and filling while my wife enjoys their margaritas as a nice addition. We have always had very attentive wait staff who are always willing keep our beverages full and the chip basket and salsa overflowing.... More

The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. The mole, carnitas and kids meals were great. The decor is vibrant and unique. Definitely stop by if you are in the area.
