Great place to eat if you like Mexican. Service is fast and the beer is cold in tall iced glasses. Offer a 10% discount if you have a hotel key. Pleasant servers and helpful staff.

We waited 20 mins to place drink order only to get strawberry margarita that was flavorless. Salsa was straight from the jar. 40 mins after coming in the door we finally got our food. Enchiladas suizas was just gross. Hardly any chicken. Mostly all lettuce. Waiter was rude and unhelpful. Will never eat here again.

I never had to leave beer behind before, but I did here. When they say "tall" they mean it! The food was good, but not spectacular. The salsa was unusually thick and tomato-pasty, but still tasty. Yes, I'd go back there; but next time I won't have a beer before going there.

I have eaten here several times and is my favorite restaurant in London when I am in the mood for Mexican and for a fast sit down dinner. The people that work here are very friendly but they do sometimes times have trouble with English. They are very quick to get you seated and get your order. From the time... More

Have eaten at Mexican restaurants all over America and this one was just as good as the best we have been at. Great service, friendly server, very fair priced.

My Fajitas were as good as I have had anywhere. My wife had the Taco salad with Chicken. She said she could tell the chicken was fresh, perfectly cooked and not overly seasoned. Great Margaritas!

We typically eat at the El Dorados in Corbin, KY and love it. We were in London location assuming it would be similar. Not all chain restaurants are created equal. The portions were smaller and not as flavorful. The salsa mimicked jar salsa. We won't be back.

Stopped on the way north, thinking, "Mexican is always at least reasonable, sometimes great." Were we wrong! This place is absolutely terrible. Taco salad -- with ground beef with no spices at al.. Something called "tamales" that weren't - sort of a cut-open tamale will ground beef swimming in sauce ladled on top. Beans straight out of a can. Nice... More
