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 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 treat them as important... More

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

I got the fajitas. Tasted good. They waiter brought barely a teaspoon full of sour cream and 3 very small tortillas. It took forever to get more tortillas and when I ordered more sour cream he brought out a big bowl of it. Then he proceeded to charge for the "extras" that should have come with the meal.

For our area (we live here in Madison), this is the best Mexican restaurant. The menu is pretty extensive. The maragaritas and drink specials are very good. Although usually pretty busy, we've never had to wait for a table, which is nice.
