It was a good restaurant with good food, but I just wasn't wowed. The staff was friendly enough, it just felt like any other Mexican restaurant. I thought being in Branson it would stand out more, but it didn't. I did see some families their, so they must cater to parents with children.

It is hard to review this Mexican restaurant next to the Star-Light Theatre. It used to be better? I think it is under new ownership.

My folks used to love this place, but it recently closed before we could give it a try ourselves. Bummer. We need more little family-run places like this in our towns!

From the time you sit down these folks are friendly, bring lots of homemade chips and salsa and make a great Burrito. Also we had fajitos and tacos. Good value for family budget.

When this restaurant first opened it had great food and the building was well maintained, but slowly the quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff, and cleanliness seemed to slip. I was setting in the bar looking at their wine glasses, that all had a dirty film, and I told myself that the plates I was eating from... More

The food is nothing better than opening a frozen Mexican tv dinner. I ordered the cheese enchilada and beef taco. The beef was supposed to be shredded and it was hamburger meat. The rice... More

Just can't say how disappointed I really am in the quality of the food these days. Since moving from in front of the Days Inn to the new local on 76, nothing is the same. I don't know if they have changed hands or exactly what has happened but my favorite dish turned out to be horrible. The service was... More

The food was wonderful. Homemade Salsa and excellent Mexican recipes. I ordered Chimichangas which were made with fresh chicken and Mexican cheeses. My daughter had a quesadilla that was very good. I wish they would open one in St. Louis. I would go there every week!
