Great veg options and warm staff

Any place with a vegan chimichanga and the owners check with you periodically to ensure you're happy is a winner in my book. Reasonably priced, warm and comfortable atmosphere, and great people. Can't lose!

Service initially was quick which is the norm for Mexican restaurants. But slow to get meal. The wait staff was indifferent and the food was average.

If the owner doesn't come out and greet you before, during, or after the meal, you must be in the wrong place! Delicious Mexican food--I love the enchiladas--with plenty of variety to choose from. A great place for families...lots of space and wiggle room for little ones.

Well, yet another Mexican restaurant to try in the area. I work right up the street from Janitzio, so it was about time to try it. With mixed reviews, I didn't go in expecting much. And well, it delivered that... "Not much." I have been there three times to give it a fair chance. It is so odd that their... More

Stopped here on a road trip so we were not sure what to expect. Service was incredibly good, and it was clear from seeing other diners that they have some regular customers. Meal was excellent; we are vegetarians so we look for great veggie options. Burritos and quesadillas were just great. We will stop here again on our return trip.

Had to hunt it down GPS was off but it was in old Ryan's about a mile pass the Walgreen's at 636 Spartanburg Hwy. Parking lot looks a little worn down but the food made up for it. A lot of local trade but good reviews got us there and we were not let down. Under $30 for two with... More

I just returned from visiting the is restaurant on my first (of hopefully many) visits to Hendersonville. There really isn't much Mexican style atmosphere, but if you've been to Mexico - most of the best places aren't gussied up anyway!! The salsa was good - the primary way I judge a Mexican restaurant although I do tend to prefer mine... More

This Mexican reasturant is always delicious!!! My boyfriend and I go here often! They have a salsa bar which has very good choices on it. The owner is always present and checks on his customers non-stop. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a shot! You'll be happy that you did!
