Our favorite American-style Mexican restaurant

This is one of our favorite American-style Mexican restaurants to eat at in the Jackson area. I've tried all of the others in Madison along with Flowood, Ridgeland, and such, and this location is by far the best. They recognize us when we walk in and take the time to speak Spanish to the kids and... read more

This is the one in Madison, Mississippi on Hyw. 51. The owner is very attentive to the customers. It is family owned...sometimes the owner is in the kitchen. He and his mother make sure that the food is good, hot, and served promptly. I love going here.

This restaurant is excellent. The food is tasty and the portions are large. We go there every Friday night. The prices are very reasonable. The managers even walk through from time to time to ask how everything is. This restaurant is a well-kept secret. It has indoor and outdoor seating. We love it

I went with my family for Dinner on July 4th weekend and ordered Fajitas and Quesadilla's. I was little surprised by the taste, they both were actually good. I ordered some Rice with beans separately. This is a decent Mexican restaurant where you will get good and fast service. They have other good options in their Menu. I will definitely... More

This hardly qualifies as a Mexican restaurant. Put guacamole on everything does not constitute Mexican cuisine. The salsa was not spicy at all, the sopapillas were basically fried tortillas with whipped cream and (literally) a cherry on top. If you want some fake Mexican cuisine (e.g. Tex Mex) I guess this may be a decent spot, but if you want... More

Steak fajitas were very tough and bland! Service was slow, avoid this tex mex place and go across the street to taquieria y guadalupe, where the food is authentic, freshly made, and the service is great!

This has become one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Very broad choices on the menu and fresh ingredients at a reasonable price. The margaritas are a perfect balance of sweet and sour. Hard to always hit it right but they have it down. The service is excellent and we are always greeted by one or more of the family members... More

Good food, good service and good atmosphere. Really don't understand why they want 100 characters...my review is all i needed to say. That's one reason I hardly ever do reviews.
