Typical Mexican Restaurant

The margaritas were delicious but the food was just ok. Service was a bit slow for being one of two tables in the restaurant.

The food is great here and the staff is always the best! Every year, my friends and I reserve the back room for dinner and we always have the place to ourselves. This is my favorite place to eat in Hermann!

While the food was just average, the waitress was terrible. It took a long time for her to wait on us (and there were about 4 other people in the place), a long time to bring the food, got the order wrong and we finally had to go find her to get the check. While we were waiting to pay,... More

HUGE MENU, with some interesting options like crab rangoon...but I had the chicken nachos and they were delicious. We had a large party and they were accommodating and friendly. The service was a little slow, but we were a big group.

Never been to a mexican place with crab Rangoon, cheese sticks AND a shrimp cocktail, along with bean "deep" on the menu, but it worked out ok. Staff was very nice and dealt well with our loud large group. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and especially their margaritas, but don't ask for a large unless you mean it ;).

We visited on the $1 taco night, and both ordered soft shell tacos. I do not think there were any tomatoes in them. Not a lot of flavor, just a cheap filler. Taco Bell is better.

Just a little off, I ordered a taco salad and it was swimming in cheese sauce and sour cream. I think that is what it was anyway. It honestly looked like soup.

Great food at a good price and excellent service! Went on a girls trip to Hermann, and we were given the royal treatment! Highly recommend! They were even nice enough to ship back a jacket to me that I had left behind in the restaurant, such wonderful nice people!

Keep your perspective in check when dinning at this restaurant. it is not your fancy suburban tex/mex joint. This is definitely a local dive. Food is solid, place is clean...but it's not On The Border!
