We stopped here based on the other TA reviews and we weren't disappointed! The food was good. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The portions were huge. The prices were very reasonable considering the size of the portions.

This is the third Mexican restaurant we've tried in the Brookings area and we prefer the food here and by far they have the best salsa - chunky and a bit of a hot after burn but very tasty. We both got the ground beef super burrito for $9.95 each which seems to be the going price at all Mexican... More

The place seemed to be still a bit unfinished but the food and serving size was wonderful. Lunch was a beef burrito with rice and beans for $5. My wife had enchiladas. Great price! Great Food!! Maybe I should have had two lunches. Easy parking right off 101 in Brookings.

Great Mexican food and great prices. Although I differ on the definition of pico de gallo with the cook -- the dinner was fantastic. Prices reasonable. I will go again when I'm in the area.

There were many choices for Mexican food in Brookings, so we chose the one that had the most cars in its parking lot, as we hadn't asked around for a recommendation. We were pleased to find that the food was very good. The servers were incredibly nice, though a bit unorganized/forgetful, but that may be due to the remodeling going... More

Friendly, attentive, excellent food choices. Food was served hot, fresh, and in a timely fashion. Waitress came by often to check on us, but not in a "bugging us" manner. The management even came by to greet us and make sure we were being taken care of. If you go away hungry, it is your own fault.

Happy hour 3-6, we missed this but a regular one is only 3.75 and was great. Great cabbage salsa and everything we ordered was great. Friendly service, always filling our salsa and drinks, we have been here before and enjoy their friendly service.

No longer our favorite Mexican restaurant in Brookings, but it's still good. The mole sauce is particularly good. The service is usually pretty prompt, though it can take a while to get your food sometimes. The prices seem about right. The menus, oddly enough, sell advertising space on every page.

The customer service is great! The food was okay, I ordered steak fajitas...compared to other places the serving was small but it had good flavor. We usually come here with a big group of 15 so its always fun! we always get wonderful service and thats what really matters the most to me.

this is the closest you'll get to tex-mex in oregon. (consider that - in other mexican restaurants - tomato soup is the enchilada sauce.) the pollo asada is over the top!! everything on the menu is yummy.
