I had a Diablo Burrito which was pretty tasty. Wife and kids meals were OK. Lots of cheese! Chips were a little cold and could have been better. Service was OK. Nothing terrible, but just about average overall.

Overall, a great experience. Chips and salsa were good and food was on par for a classic Mexican restaurant. Margaritas were tasty! Service was quick and polite. Definitely would go there again if in the area.

We came at night somewhat near closing time. There was no hostess at the station and we couldn't see any staff. Waited about 3 or more minutes before someone saw us. Their chips and salsa were good but nothing special. I got chicken enchiladas and only ate 2 bites, they tasted like nothing but chicken flavoring despite the red sauce... More

We had lunch at this restaurant twice will visiting Osage Beach. The food is excellent and the service was friendly and very accommodating. My husband and I are especially fond of mexican cuisine and this is one of the best mexican restaurants we have dined at.

My only real complaint was that their A/C was broken on an 83 degree day. Ceiling fans helped, but it was still a warm dinner experience. Good selection of food and beers. Cute faux-cantina decor.

As a vegetarian, it's hard finding good restaurants of any type. This one is an exception. They really know how to do great veggie-Mexican. Staff go out of their way to please. Love this place! Rev Bill, moreableinc.org

Will try to keep this as short as possible. Food was mediocre. Watched as the waiter refilled one of our water glasses. He then gave it to the table next to us that wasn't even drinking water(disgusting). We had to ask a woman that was servicing another table to refill a child's tea. They took it to another area of...

I ate lunch on 1-17-14 and my bill was $16.63 and I left a tip of $4.00, should have been charged $20.63. That is about 24% tip but when I got my bank statement they charged me $51.63. I will never eat there again. BEWARE!!!!!!!!

When we arrived there weren't many people in, but the weather was nasty. We went in and received wonderful service. The salsa along with the food was fresh and quite flavorful. The chicken was white meat and the beef was seasoned quite nicely. The price is just right and portions are more than plentiful. I've paid 2 to 3 times... More
