Description: An authentic Mexican meal is an assault on the senses. First, there is the sound of sizzling meat on hot plates. Then comes the aroma, slowly at first, and then in full force when the plate is in front of you. The contrasting colors of green, yellow and red peppers, meats, spices and salsas are a feast for the eyes. Our tortillas are soft to the touch. But most memorable, varied, and sought after is the taste. Whether it's the bite of juicy steak fajitas coupled with the cooling effects of our guacamole and sour cream, a refreshing sip of our famous margaritas or the crisp, perfectly salted bite of tortilla chips dipped in our fresh made salsa, we know that you won't be able to stop at one taste. Stop holding back, and come taste authentic Mexico!

Place is clean well decorated, lots of parking, Was seated immediately, service was very good, but the food was not at all Mexican. My tacos were just chunks of chicken with salsa on it. No spices, the rice and beans could have came out of box/can. do not go there looking for Mexican food. Taco Bell would have been better... More

Karan, while I'm happy to read you enjoyed our ambiance, I'm disappointed to see you weren't wowed by your tacos. We make everything fresh, in-house daily, so I'm not sure what exactly happened here, but it's possible our twist on Mexican favorites is just a little different than what you were expecting. That said, if you're willing to give us... More

Went in and sat at the bar for a quick lunch and a margarita. Extra large margaritas for a great price. The bartender, Kirsten, was genuinely friendly. I have been here a few times before and have never had a bad experience.

We were starving and tried this place because it was close to our hotel and we were craving Mexican food. The server was wonderful, the food was not. The "salsa" tasted and poured like tomato juice, so I asked for guacamole. This was shiny, showed no sign of an avocado, and looked like it had been squeezed out of a... More

It's truly disheartening to read this review, Anne. We want to serve you a tasty meal that you're excited to talk about. I can assure you that we use only the freshest ingredients available, so it's a shame to read that you were disappointed with the salsa, guacamole, and burritos. Did you let your server know?

This is one of those chain mexican restaurants that is not good. Seems like you're eating at an old hotel restaurant, food is not good or worth the money.

Paul, we strive to serve you original and authentic Mexican food at affordable prices, so I'm disappointed to read that you were unimpressed. If you're willing to give us another chance, our Sunday buffet may be a great way for you to find something you really enjoy! Take care and hope to see you soon, Sheri Daubert, Owner More

This establishment has been in Billings for many years. Although their food wasn't exactly as good as the last few times we were there, the customer service was fantastic. My kids had a great time watching everything from our booth.

Made a dinner stop here in January. I have a restrictive diet so choices were few; the choice that I made (pork chili) was okay, but clearly not the greatest for a Mexican restaurant. My dinner partner had a taco that came on a flour tortilla. Again, not too Mexican. So, I'll remark that the service was fast and great.... More

A meal out to eat should include both tasty food and attentive service, so I'm sorry to read we weren't able to fully deliver. We serve authentic Mexican food, so I'm not sure what happened here, but I appreciate the feedback. I'm happy to read that you at least had great service, and I'll be sure to pass that along... More

We were seated at a filthy table that hadn't been cleaned off. We were the only people there at the time. Upon being seated at another table I was given a dirty water glass. Carpets appear to never have been cleaned. We had the breakfast buffet which had food that was barely warm. Bacon and sausage that is nearly cold... More

We travel all throughout the NW, and this is one of the worst Mexican restaurants we have experienced personally. Margarita....well I guess we have experienced amazing margaritas, so we're most definitely hard to please. But mexican food, which is usually filling, this one had mini portions for outrages prices. The server forgot the black beans and hot sauce. We had... More

I can say nothing negative about this restaurant. The staff is so friendly. The atmosphere is authentic and so is the food. This has got to be one of the best restaurants in Billings.

The level of cleanliness of the restaurant was unacceptable. I had enough health concerns after visiting the restaurant that I did not even place an order. Please clean up your restaurant so that I would feel comfortable trying your food.
