You always get impeccable service here. Very fast if you're in a hurry for lunch or something like that. Everything here is good. My favorite is the fajitas or pollo bandido!!

The service has always been top notch and the food always fresh. Great service for a small town Mexican restaurant.

With the exception of the salsa,the rest of the meal was great. Nice guacamole, shrimp fajitas, tortilla chips, etc. The restaurant is always busy because it is good quality and high value, and fast.

I come here often, and it is very popular. Service is quick, efficient. Food quality is good and reliable, with very reasonable prices. Sometimes there can be a wait at lunch time. Fortunately, the other restaurant is just half a mile down the road.

This place has the typical Tex-Mex thing going on but the food was very good and affordable enough for lunch. Service was excellent! My lunch arrived nearly as fast as I was able to go to the restroom. I was somewhat disappointed with the lunch portion but if you have both your tortillas and a good helping of chips, you... More

I remember the food here being much better when I lived in Pikeville ten years ago. My husband and I stopped on our way back from Breaks Interstate Park and were sorely disappointed in the food and the service. First of all, Pikeville needs to get with the times and add Sunday alcohol sales. We were seated very close to... More
