Food to go after game

Got food to go. Large portions. Casual Mexican. Some confusion when trying to locate our order. Food was decent. Not the best Mexican I have ever had but pretty good. Each dish served w rice beans. Good pricing

My favorite place to eat in Stillwater. I eat here and then get food to go. They have great horchata, and everything I have eaten I liked. The service is unbeatable. I have seem waiters actually running to get things.

Our family visited and ordered a range of entrees and while we are all foodies with pretty critical taste, we were all impressed. The flauntas were great as were the tamales,fajitas and even the rice and beans.To top it off our server,Manuel was attentive and cordial,making the meal an afternoon delight.

Their ability to accommodate very large groups at lunch without prior notice is amazing. Our large volunteer group takes advantage of this often. The food is pretty good, though I seem to love things that get taken off the menu and I am puzzled by the absence of pork entrees. My new favorite is the beef street tacos - the... More

We have never had a bad meal or have waited a long length of time to be seated no matter the time of day. They seem to be very well organized and speedy. We have always enjoyed our meals here.
