This is a family owned restaurant with really great food. The chips & salsa are extra, but worth the cost. I love the stewed meat in their burritos (which is my favorite). Good taco salad as well. Nice location in downtown Davison.

Their chips are terrific. Love the J's Jumbo Burrito with stew beef. Get it "wet" with cheese and gravy.

This place has the best Mexican in the county. The beef and gravy is excellent. Wish they would get a liquor license.

This restaurant is pretty good. Their homemade salsa keeps me coming back. If you want a margarita with your burrito, you have to visit a place down the road though.

This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant. Over the last few year's the resturanrt has declined. Hair in my food, smaller portions, greasy chips, salsa that taste like turpentine. And the waitstaff are just high school girls, barley doing their job. So sad.

The food is always ready when we order ahead. We visit regularly and there is always 6-8 of us. The meals are good though they can vary depending on the chef. Only on occasion has a person been disappointed. The waitstaff is efficient and friendly. The meals are inexpensive and the quantity is sufficient.

I absolutely love their golden tacos with beef. I first time I tried that, I was trying something new and it's hard to go there now and not get that. My husband is hooked as well. My other favorite is the combination plate. It's always way to much food, but you get a little bit of everything and I always... More

Do not expect fancy décor. Excellent food, wonderful services and great value. If you find yourself near by treat yourself to excellent chips and salsa. My fave is the Taco Salad! Yum!
