Good food, nothing to complain about. I would eat there again, especially given the other options in Cave City.

If you are in Cave City or visiting Mammoth Caves this is the place to go to for Mexican food and happy hour drinks after a long day outside when you are hungry. The location is about a block from I65 on your way to Cave City. We enjoyed a mixed seafood fajita and also a pork entree that was... More

Nice decor, attentative service, not all waiters understood English very well. I had the cheese and bean enchiladas with rice. It was satisfactory. The salsa served with the chips, while generous in portion, was bland. Good value for price.

We stopped here for dinner when driving through Cave City. Selected it because of the Trip Advisor rating and absolutely do not regret the decision. Service was great and the food was very good with plenty of it!

I love Mexican but not this place. My husband had the Playa Azul and it seemed more Asian than anything else. It was a confusing dish. I had a combo plate with a taco, burrito, and rice and beans. I would have preferred Taco Bell and that is not even Mexican.

From recommendations we had been given, we expected great food at reasonable prices. What we didn't expect was superior service. I just wish we were staying here longer to get back here. A winner!!
