Great mexican cuisine!!!

If you're looking for great Mexican cuisine in Billings, this is one of your best bets. The food is tasty, and the staff is friendly. It is a smaller dining area though, so going on an off hour usually is best. They also double charged me one time that I ate there, but I was able to call and get... read more

This is a great spot for both locals and visitors to Billings. The restaurant is located downtown near the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the lower level of an old building. It's actually a lovely setting, but it is fairly small. They serve alcohol, but we did not have any on this day. If you go during "rush" hours, the service... More

I've eaten a number of times over the years and they never fail to satisfy. Large servings, authentic recipes and great atmosphere. A little on the pricey side for lunch - expect to spend about $12 with a drink.

I've been eating here for years and just had another great lunch today. The owners are from Mexico and the food reflects their authenticity. The portions are always generous and the service is friendly. Today I had the chicken fajita burrito. It was full of large slices of chickens, big chunks of peppers and onions and lots of cheese and... More

After two glasses of wine and one hour of time I left without having the dinner I had ordered. They said my order got lost in the computer. I left after paying for the wine.

This is our favorite Art Walk eatery on the 1st Friday every other month during the year. The prep and true preparation, customer service in their customary outfits in fun! The drinks are great and we really appreciate going there with our associate artists.

It's not a big place, and sometimes there is a wait to get in. The food is very good, there is always too much- sharing meals would be a good idea. It is a fun place to eat.

Their food is very good but I love chips and salsa. Whether or not that is good really sets the bar for the food. I've stopped going because they charge for more than one salsa. When there are a few of you who like salsa that is a problem. I've though we ought to get our own tables and then... More

Nice little Mexican joint in downtown Billings. The Prime Rib chimichanga was fantastic, the meet was tender and well seasoned. They are a little proud of their Mexican beer (pricey). The rice that went with the chimi was a little bland, but everything else was fantastic, great chips and salsa. Service was attentive and friendly.

Don Luis has developed a strong reputation in Billings as one of the better Mexican restaurants and I don't think it is deserved. I have been there several times and always found it to be mediocre. There are much better Mexican restaurants in Billings.
