I LOVE Mexican food!!! It is my absolute favorite, and I have had it in many different states (I find Mexican restaurants everywhere I go) but this is still the best I have ever had. The shrimp chimichungas are awesome!! The nachos with with steak, chicken, and shrimp are even better!!! But the magic here is the queso! I cannot... More

We eat here pretty often and really like it. The staff is great and the prices are very affordable. This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurant. I normally get the Opelousas Choice which is very good. It is enough for me and my 12yr old daughter to share. We also like the atmosphere and normally don't have to wait... More

I think that they have ok food, nothing to brag about. Service is great and so is the price, but the flavor is lacking. Drive another 20 minutes to Carencro and eat at Picantes. Much better tasting food for comparable prices. This place is more of an upscale Taco Bell. Nothing more.

Good Mexican food and margaritas. Service was also good and very polite staff. I definitely recommend it if you're visiting Opelousas.

Great Mexican food, cute atmosphere, friendly and efficient servers. The steak and shrimp fajitas were delicious. Well worth a visit.

White queso and chips were good. As well as a very good salsa with fresh cilantro. Tasted like it had chili powder in it also. Large selection on menu. I had fajita poblano which was 2 poblano peppers stuffed with cheese and batter-fried topped with fajita meat (I chose beef) and onions and bell peppers then some kind of salty... More

I love Mexican food both authentic and TexMex. The food here is no better than Taco Bell. Many people like it but I just don't taste what they are tasting. The atmosphere is unique and the service is excellent but the food is mundane. I go with colleagues and drink at the bar but usually don't eat anymore.
