My husband go here every Thursday for their margarita night. Best salsa around. When we walk in always greeted by our first names and a big grin. Prices are affordable and food is always consistently delicious no matter what you choose. From a simple taco to the seafood fajitas you can't go wrong.

Best Mexican food in Owatonna. The smell of the sizzling fajitas as they bring them to your table is amazing. Margaritas are always very good. It's our place to go when we want good Mexican food.

Wife and I had lunch there last week after having driven by many times before. Pleasantly surprised. Great variety of food, good margaritas and good service. Very authentic and from the number of customers, must be one of the best in town.

Overall good food and good value. Not the best I have ever had but for Owatonna not bad. The rice and beans very good. Burrito could have been warmer. Chips and salsa were very good. Friendly wait staff.

We went to this restaurant b/c we saw on this site that it was the #1 restaurant in Owatonna. My husband had carne asada tacos, & I had chile verde (like carnitas). It was really good! The employees were all working hard & very friendly!

I have visited this restaurant several times and it is half-way point to meet family who live in Southern MN, I live in the twin cities. It is authentic Mexican menu at low prices. The drinks are great too. Service is amazing.
