Food tasted great, BUT

I seem to have a problem with Mexican food the next day. That being said, the chicken fajita tasted great, the cost very reasonable and the service fast and attentive. I've been to other Mexican food with no ill effects, but this is the last time I'll come here.

I went for a late dinner on a Saturday night. They had great drink specials. The food was really good, too. They had some interesting menu items that I haven't seen elsewhere. One was liver tacos. I actually like liver so I thought it was really good. They serve chips and salsa with the table. The salsa was OK, not... More

This was recommended by local motel staff and we were really pleased at the food/price and the wait staff was excellent. Will definitely stop by again and enjoy great Mexican cuisine

The food here is authentic, the service fast and efficient and the prices are extremely reasonable. A bit off the main drag, but worth finding. Broad range of authentic Mexican dishes in multiple combinations. Great beer at bargain prices. This is a spot you should return to several times if you're visiting Boone. If you live here, it's got to... More

This marvelous little gem, tucked into the mountains surrounding Boone and across the street from a concrete plant, isn't remarkable from the exterior. The interior isn't all that, either. But the food - oh, Lord have mercy - the food is exquisite; the real deal. Timely, affordable, complex and bountiful - the food is worth going back for!

We eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants and this was one of the best. The chicken Casado was excellent. The beef tip burrito was very good and the beef tips were very tender. The staff was very friendly and the food come quick. The prices were very reasonable.

If you can't find the restaurant on Blowing Rock Rd, you're OK. It's on Boone Heights Drive, next to Burger King. Cool and tiled inside, the cheesy enchiladas will cool you off on a hot day and warm you up on a cold one.
