Best of the two Mexican restaurants in town. The food is hot, fresh, and quickly served. It's good too. I eat there when I'm nearby.

Being from the Chicago area I wondered how good the Mexican food could be in Kentucky , well I have to tell it was good and I am glad I took the chance. Good food , good service , good prices equals a great place to eat.

I eat here a couple times a year. The food is always excellent. They have a great variety on the menu. For this meal I had a fajita steak, chicjen, shrimp combo with all the trimmings. Suberb. Wish I had a bisquit to sop up the juice from the plate. The staff were friendly and always helpful. Service is prompt.

Very good steak fajitas! I loved that their meat is cut in tiny pieces. They had a Tuesday night special of buy one get one free margueritas at 3.75! We also liked that their chips were warm and fresh and their smooth salsa is a nice change

We went here based on a hotel desk clerk's recommendation. At night, it was a bit confusing to find the front entrance. Inside we were promplty seated and had great service. The menu had many interesting options and I chose the seafood fajitas which contained shrimp, scallops, crab and fish. They were unique and delicious. My wife's meal was also... More

This was one of the few food choices in Cave City. The menu items are typical tex-mex. The servings are huge. The taste is just average.

My husband and I ended up staying in Cave City camping and the weather turned bad so we decided to eat out instead. The food tasted amazing and the portions were huge. The service was top notch. Bathrooms were clean, prices reasonable. We were very happy with our dinner.

the tacos and enchiladas were not up to Taco Bell quality. The tostado with guacamole was good. Won't stop here again. The people are so nice and the atmosphere was great.

Ok, after driving 700 miles, it was indeed refreshing to stop here for supper before checking into our hotel. So my expectations were not that high but they have certainly been exceeded. Good service, good food, good margaritas. The salsa could be kicked up a notch. I neglected to write down the name of the menu item but there is... More
