We stopped at this restaurant to eat dinner. The service was average. The fajita's were good. The quesadillas were not. The beef meat was too tough to chew and the liquid type cheese did not taste good to me. I ended up eating one of the children's enchilada's. It was good. The beans and rice were fine. I would not...

My 19 year old had the burrito loco and it filled him up. Beef and chicken and a lot more. Veg fajita was very good as well. Fair prices and tasty food

My reviews are for several visits to each restaurant to be fair . We have stopped here over 8 times and it is a very cute place , very colorful.

We love this restaurant. It is an authentic Mexican restaurant, not like a Tex-Mex place. The portions are usually large, the prices are fair for what you get, and the service is always good. I can honestly say that I've never had a bad meal here. In my opinion, one of the best two restaurants in Gaylord!

We eat here often. I especially like the pollo ala diablo. Chicken with very hot and spicy sauce. Not for the meek. They do have other less spicy dishes, but this is my favorite. Makes you break out in a sweat. Great service, cold beer, fair prices. With a very clorful decor. It is a family owned business.

It was a festive inside- decorative only. We had to hunt down waiter a couple of times as workers were socializing in back. Food wasn't that good it was lukewarm at best and steak pieces in my burrito had a lot of fatty chew pieces. Taco Bell was right down the road wish we ate there for a fifth of... More
