Good food

Not a fancy or quiet place but good Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Many sauces to choose from so everyone was happy. Good place to take a family for an inexpensive, pleasant night out.

If you eat no where else in Hendersonville, eat here! We LOVED this place! Ate here twice during vacation - it was THAT GOOD. Parking lot is always full, but the longest we had to wait for a table was 5 minutes. They put a twist on chips and salsa and start with chips and a bean dip (they also... More

Had lunch there on a Friday, and it was so good, we went back two days later! The food is fresh and so tasty, and the beer is good. Service is fast and friendly. Very reasonable prices, too! Recommend anything with guac. The food is just great!

Well, one of the challenges of going to restaurants close to home is that second visits are often disappointing. I enjoyed the first time I went (Warning - I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian). The food wasn't excellent, but it was good, hot, well cooked. Not great cuisine, but good Cal-Mex. Unfortunately, the second time I went it was bad, couldn't... More

If you are not looking for it, then you might miss this place and that would be a shame. The food is wonderful and you have oh, so many choices. This is not a fancy place, but the service is good and the people are friendly. I have eaten at many Mexican restaurants and this one is right at the... More

Arrived Sunday at 12:30 so we had to wait about 15 minutes.Four of us had enchiladas, rice and refried beans. The only difference was cheese,chicken or ground beef variety. We enjoyed lunch because every part of it was good. Iced tea was great and our service was very good. Portions were huge. No problems at all. We'll be back for... More

This is a little different take on the typical Mexican style meals. The warm bean dip is a must have. Most of the dinner options are tasty and large. The prices are very good for what is served.

I have been to P and B many times and love the food. Great spices, not cheap Mexican food. The adovada sauce is amazing. Great salsa bar, very convenient. Will return many times for warm fajita salad!

Nothing fancy but the food and service are very good; they give you plenty of food so you will never leave hungry. Love the bean dip with the chips instead of the usual salsa

Decent Mexican food, but I have to say that the local El Paso restaurants have better salsa bars and enchiladas. The carnitas were tender but not that flavorful. On the plus side, the tortilla soup was wonderful and there were great specials on local and imported draft beer. I might return to try some other dishes or if I really... More
