Best Mexican in town

The only place I go for Mexican. The margaritas are great. The prices are fantastic and portions are large. 1 of my favorites!

Neither good nor bad ... it just is. It was adjacent to the motel I was staying in during my stay in Hays so if you are pressed for time and simply looking for convenience and 'ok' food and service then you will do just fine here. If you want something brimming with character and exceptional food then you likely... More

Ate here once before, about 9 months ago. Had a good meal and good time. This last time, the service and food had deteriorated considerably.

Speedy service, delicious food, and great salsa. I love there veggie quesadilla packed with fresh veggies. One of my favorite "go to" places in Hays.

I ate here during an overnight stay in Hays because I could easily walk to the restaurant from my motel nearby. The service and food were fine but nothing spectacular. I would describe the cuisine as competent north-of-the-border Mexican fare. The introductory tortilla chips are warm, crisp and tasty, served with a decent red salsa.

Very fast service and friendly workers. The food is one of the most authentic in town with great taste! The margaritas are the best in town along with the chips and salsa. Defently one of the best!
