Lots of good eats for a low price!

Low prices for loaded plates of quality tasting food. Many working folks, farmers, orchardists, firemen, policemen, etc come here for the price, the quality, and the quantity. For about $5 you can get a fully loaded plate of good and flavorful food, Mexican style. Free Nachos and dip served... read more

This restaurant was superb! We were greeted by a jovial man who made us laugh at times. We were well taken care of. The food was delicious and all that for a reasonable price. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quite relaxed. Everyone was enjoying their food! A great place to dine!

This restaurant touts itself as authentic. Even so, it's not good. It's not bad, either. This place is a perfect example of the fact that authentic cuisine doesn't always translate to good. Having lived in Mexico for a short time, I learned that just like everywhere else, not all cooks/chefs can cook well. I was a little puzzled by a... More

This restaurant is a family oriented establishment. It's a nice little place to hang out and get fat. Portions are good and prices are reasonable.

The food was delicious!! The iced tea was very fresh and the service was fast. This was amongst the best Mexican food I've eaten. The prices were reasonable. I would definitely eat there again.

Very small town, not many options for food. The price was good, but my Grilled Shrimp Quesadilla was just shrimp and cheese, no spices or herbs or other flavorings. Was surprised at the blandness, but they did have some extremely spicy sauces, heat but not a lot of flavor.

We had one of these in Morganton which had fantastic service and good food (now since closed) so I was thrilled to have the same food here in Newland. I have eaten here several times and while the food is always good, the service is terrible. The first glass of water or other beverage you had better ration, because you... More

Just off the BlueRidge Parkway (Pineola exit). The full parking lot promised good food. My fajita del mar surpassed expectations. $13.30 for shrimp & scallops sautéed with onions & bell peppers. With it (on a separate plate) they gave me guacamole, beans, rice, sour cream, chopped lettuce & 3 flour tortillas. I cook well. It takes a lot to please... More
