Fist off: chips & fresh salsa are to die for. Next great prices. The portions are huge. I used a restaurant.com cert and had no problems at all. The young lady that served us tonight (12/31/15) was so friendly. She asked us where we were from, learned each of our names and attempted to teach us a little Spanish. Lol.... More

Holy Mackerel, this place is delicious. The salsa is fresh, they make authentic masa and delicious fresh meats, and this place actually serves meals with FLAVOR! My favorite restaurant here in Boone, hands down.

Great food. Chips and excellent salsa were plentiful. My husband ordered the tacos and was able to order up to four different types of meats. I had the enchilada ElPaso (one chicken, one beef). Great flavors.

This place has the best tacos and the best service in Boone. The food is very fresh and affordable. The lady that runs the front of the house is an absolute gem.

My first visit to this restaurant.....good experience. Casual, small seating area, wide variety of dishes on the menu. The chicken burrito was large...took half home, nice flavor, lots of chicken and tasty sauce. My friend had a pork, peppers and onion sandwich which was large and tasty. A bit hard to eat as a sandwich due to the size and... More
