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

We had dinner here one night during a visit to the area. My wife and I thought the food was very good and the pricing was amazingly inexpensive. Not a bad gem in the middle of nowhere.

I enjoyed the Morganton version of this restaurant and the food is good here as well. They have really great salsa and chips. The Pollo Loco (Thinly sliced Chicken Breast with Cheese Sauce, Rice, Refried Beans, Guacamole salad) is one of my Favorites. I also really enjoy their Fajita Tejanas which is a Beef,Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas. They also have... More

All Mexican food in the high country is the same. It's low quality Tex Mex. But you know it becomes tasty when it's all you have. You find yourself craving it. We all have had better in other towns but we are not in other towns. It's the same when you are out eating pizza and there's always that guy... More
