Decent prices for the portions

We had an Enchilada plate and a Tamale plate - service was quick and food was decent. Chips were light and tasty. Within walking distance of our hotel. I'd recommend it for a quick sit down meal

I was disappointed in the carne asada as it was very bland, my wife's tamales were also on the bland side.

We have eaten here before when staying in Roswell. We were not disappointed. The service was very good, the food arrived quickly and was very good. More than a couple of seniors could eat but recommend and will come back.

We stopped here to get a late night bit and a couple drinks. They were closing in 15 minutes but, very kindly allowed us to stay as long as we liked without pressure and still provided us with excellent service and the food was great!

We stopped at this Mexican restaurant because there were so many cars there we thought it was "the" place for good Mexican food. It took a while for someone to seat us and for someone else to come over and give us chips and salsa. The chips are home made and were the best part of our dining experience here.... More

Our experience at this restaurant was outstanding. Not only was our food delicious but we had the nicest waitress by the name of Sam. Loved the thin chips with a mild seasoning along with the fried ice cream. The restaurant was clean and well appointed. We will definitely stop again.

The food was fine. The margs were great. I would recommend going there if you want to eat in a good atmosphere and have a family and don't want to break the bank. The waiter was very nice and did well.

Super slow, poor food quality, can food quality, under staffed, etc. Just avoid. I hate this place but I keep forgetting each time I stay at the Hampton inn.
