Not what I think of a true Mexican fare......It has been Americanized too much! In my opinion the best thing on the menu to order are the Fajitas. Sometimes the rice is too dry and the "refried" beans too runny! But, to give it it's due the place is always clean and the staff always friendly!

Food is very good and service is excellent. I have been eating here for 4 years and there is nothing better in the way of Mexican food in the Excelsior Springs area. The extra hot sauce needs to be requested and makes a huge difference to me because I like extra spicy.

The service here is very good and the atmosphere is what I expected. The food, however, leaves something to be desired. My plate contained refried beans, which seems to be the staple on each order. Again, however, it had a "skin" on top as if it had been plated for a long time ahead of ordering. I am not a... More

Good beer and margaritas. Fahitas for two is a great meal. Service is good. Managed by the same family for 10 years.

We are from Arizona, so I might be a little biased with my opinion. I ordered a bean and cheese burrito and tamale combo with rice. The bean and cheese burrito came out, with a red sauce on top that tasted a lot like spaghetti sauce. It was very odd and not very good. The tortilla was a little soggy... More

We do not live in the area, we were just passing through to go see family. This was terrible. I ordered the enchaladas varde. The green sauce was good but that is where anything good about the experience stopped. Our server was the rudest I have ever had. He never came and checked our drinks. I had finished my glass...

Good food with great portion size. We had a good time sharing margaritas late into the night. I ordered the big bowel of chicken soup, delicious.

Food was hot and good--not terrific. The menu was huge, so you'll find something you want to eat. Not at all expensive. Drinks are priced very reasonably.
