Great food, great prices

Lunch stop that turned out to be on of our favorites. I had the lunch special burrito with pork and TGE had the lunch combo. Both were excellent. Decent local beers on tap too.

Family owned Mexican restaurant with superb food,fast service and very reasonable prices . During Spring,Summer and Fall seating outside near the stream makes for a wonderful experience. These folks 'broke the ice' and have become part of Black Mountain culture in what had been a series of not so popular restaurants before they came to town. Four stars all day... More

Friendly service and good food. Not a "high class" restaurant, but it is welcoming with appropriate décor. I have always enjoyed the meals. Go with friends or families and enjoy the varied menu.

My parents and I go there from time to time and their burritos and soft tacos are really good. They also have some great chips and salsa which can fill you up pretty quick. My parents live in the area so they go there often but I will go back myself in the future.

Great food and service... not your typical mexican restaurant. ... plus they have a decent selection of draft beer.

The decor is terrible and theropod isn't very good. Got the chicken quesadilla with vegetables (assumed it meant peppers and onion but they also include zucchini and squash) and it had no flavor at all and the peppers/onions were barely cooked. The salsa at the salsa bar is super liquidy and the side of quac was about a bite worth.... More

Visited while on vacation and it was pretty good. Loved the salsa bar. They were also cooking some of the food over an open fire in back this time and food always tastes better off the fire! Can't wait to return.

This is a good solid, Mexican food restaurant but with the best salsa bar I've seen. Great selections. The food was good, plentiful and the service was quick and friendly. Nice place to eat after a day on the road.

Fresh ingredients rule! One serving of fajitas will feed an army and won't blow your budget. My favorite light supper is shrimp tacos. Try the patio, especially with young children, where you can enjoy a walk by the stream.
