Great Mexican food....reasonably priced, too!

A couple friends and I dined here on a Friday evening. As you walk into the restaurant, there is a board with the daily drink and entrée specials. One of the drink specials was a Margarita for $2.99, so I had to have one! LOL! I was given choices of frozen, on the rocks, and with/without salt... read more

When I entered, I suddenly had high hopes as all the customers appeared to be Hispanic, but reality soon crushed the hopes. The menu is very good extensive, but my taco and burrito were like every other mediocre Mexican restaurant thet I've ever eaten in. Ground beef, white cheese, red sauce, blaah! Think of Chinese takeout and you get the... More

Over the years, we have eaten here at least two dozen times, but not for the last few years. It used to be very good. We returned recently and were totally disappointed. The taco salad was in a shell that was stale. The chile rellenos were overcooked and mushy. The burritos were dry inside. Nothing was delicious or nicely done.... More

First let me say that the waitress was nice and margaritas and chips were ok. It was all downhill from there. Our son described the ground beef perfectly as school cafeteria taco meat. Everything was greasy and mediocre. When our 5 year old won't eat the cheese quesadilla you know something's amiss. Though our 13 year old daughter who normally... More

My girlfriend and I dined here twice on our recent camping trip to Kerr Lake. The first time was so good we had to go back again. I am a professionally trained chef and having worked with many Mexicans in the industry, I've grown very fond of their cuisine. Not Mexican food as most Americans know it, but REAL Mexican... More

This is a decent place while on the road for a quick meal. Prices are good, food is typical american mexican food. It is one of the places we stop at while on the route from atlanta to DC

Had the opportunity to dine at Mazatlan Mexican Resutrant, and couldn't have been more pleased. Ordered both the enchilada and taco. They were servered promptly, steaming hot and simply delicious. The large margarita was icing on the cake. Well done Mazatlan.

Can't say I was knocked out by this place but then again, I didn't see much else to eat in the area so it's a safe bet. Pretty standard food but the price is right and the service was good.

I have only been here about two times that the food was off of what they usually serve. The service is good and they keep a check on you to be sure you are ok. The food I get is very good and always served hot. I enjoy it enough I usually eat there every week of the year unless... More

The food was good but the restaurant is attached to a run down Knights Inn hotel. When our party of 11 (we were in town for our son's baseball world series) arrived there was a man sleeping in a truck parked right in front of the restaurant. We thought we were the only people in the restaurant so when I... More
