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!!

We stopped in here on our first night in Cave City. The staff was super friendly, and very fast. The food was wonderful, good portion sizes. I'm not usually a fan of shredded chicken, but I really wanted chicken enchiladas they were great!
