Good Authenic Food

Very tasty, great price, good service. We love the chips and salsa given to the table while we wait for the meal. They are great.

Looking for the real stuff in the middle of Nebraska? This is it! Mexican food that tastes 'Mexican'! I eat here at least once every trip to Columbus.

One of the sure benefits of the influx of Mexican culture in the area has been the number of authentic Mexican restaurants. Starting out with chips and delicious salsa, refilled if necessary, adds to the "flavor atmosphere". The restaurant seems to be owned and run by a couple...she's the wait staff and he's the cook...and a wonderful one at that.... More

This is a very clean and well organized eating establishment. The food is good but the menu is limited and it all tastes the same. Prices are very fair however the server needs to learn how to smile and make folks feel welcome

The food is good, but the menu is very limited and service is sometimes slow. However, it is owned by a couple that are very friendly.

After moving to Columbus I quickly sought out the best Mexican restaurants. This restaurant has a homey feel with really yummy salsa and great menu items. The service is always fast. The huevos rancheros are especially tasty. You can tell this is run by a family who cares.

Its seat yourself service, Its got great food, nice big portions, Steak Tacos are delicious! They also will give you the normal Chips and salsa, (homemade salsa & chips) before your meal. The prices are reasonable and they have lunch specials. The decor is nothing to brag about, but they have fast service. To go orders are always around 5-10... More
