We ate at this restaurant b/c it was close to the Lake Lure Inn and we were starving. Three of the five of us thought our food was ok, and two were greatly disappointed.

I was craving Mexican food and found this little gem. However, when we went inside, we found that it was closing. But when we assured them we would eat there, they welcomed us inside. We had excellent, cheerful service and wonderful Mexican food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others visiting the area.

The service and food were pretty good. It is right beside the Inn and beach, so probably the cheapest option in walking distance.

This restaurant has moved to the shopping center right across from the beach (next to Lake Lure Inn). It has a new name: El Lago. We had a wonderful dinner there...the food was fresh, with obviously from-scratch tortillas and salsa. Our family had the beef burritos, cheese dip, pollo loco (excellent with fresh veggies, etc.), and the shrimp tacos w/... More

We were hoping to eat here last week, because we had enjoyed the food last year, but as of May, 2012, it is closed.

While the food was tasty, the place was dirty, I mean really dirty. As one local said, "People get sick once in awhile but the food is good, you just take your chances." Well, not me. They've closed but I heard they are reopening in another location nearby under a new name. Let's hope this time the earn and keep... More
