Decent but not great food, not the best service... I'd recommend but don't expect amazing... That said there isn't much to choose from in the area...

I was very disappointed in the service and food at the end of our meal. I feel it was due to the employees desires to close up too early and neglected to considered those being waited on. 1.Beginning of meal ---- Service was very poor. 2. When meal was served, I did not receive a salad, What I received was... More

We drive all the way from Goldsboro, when we want Mexican. The food is fresh and flavorful. Best Mexican food around.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Wilson. Fast, cheap, good service and GREAT food. The Fajitas, Fajita Nachos and Arroz Con Pollo are my faves. Free chips and salsa while you wait. Good size portions. We go here at least once a week. Can't handle seating for large groups. (over 12 or so)

This was not one of the best meal's that I've had but it sure was one of the best in the last year. I had the Pollo Racherio and my friend had the Vegetarian Burrito. She loved hers and also remarked that it was really good. The service was average. Bottom Line: This is definitely worth the trip.

Great prices and good food. Restaurant offers lunch hour specials daily. On a normal busy day, we get in and out of the restaurant in 45 mins.

It's really sad, I love the food here, especially the table side Guacamole, but the service is lacking. On more than one occasion, my husband and I have dined here and had subpar service. It's like the staff just doesn't care. It takes a while for drink orders to be taken then longer to get them and forget it if... More

Food is delicious, lately prices have gone up. Went to eat a few days ago and I feel they over charge me my bill was more than what I actually consume. Instead of getting an apology I had an argument with the manager he was very nasty and rude. I do not recomend this restaurant to anyone.

It became apparent almost immediately that the previous review was accurate. The service started out very iffy. The server appeared more interested in talking to the ladies behind me than my business. But it improved and my meal was satisfactory. I had the coctel de Cameron (shrimp cocktail). It had abundance of medium shrimp and avacados and was quite flavorful.... More
