I love Mexican Food

One of the best Mexican Restaurants in Charleston. The food can sometimes be slow coming out, but it's worth the wait. From seafood, to fish tacos, to fajitas, the food is great and reasonable prices. Big beers and margoronas are key :) Great for birthdays and business lunches.

After shuttling back and forth between Kiawah Island's and Charleston's "high end" restaurants, stopped here for what I hoped would be a reasonably tasting and priced lunch based on a recommendation then reading reviews. The beef (a tasteless glob of meat) and chicken (over processed and salted) tacos may the worst I have ever eaten. They were not only bland... More

The wait staff is very friendly but service is pretty slow. Waters and chip bowls went empty, etc. Food took a very long time to get to us. The steak and chicken fajitas were very good but a bit dry. Black beans were very good. This restaurant is also very loud. I wouldn't recommend going here with hearing problems.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Charleston, SC area. This is authentic Mexican food and is very good. The restaurant is clean and service is very good. Prices are very reasonable and they have a large variety of menu options.

Standard Mexican fare at standard Mexican food prices. Very good. Their shrimp tacos are good and their salsa is home made and awesome. Outside seating is in front of the building on the side walk. Stop in for a good affordable meal on John's Island.

My wife and I tried them again, what a mistake. I really think this could be a consistent great place with better management. We got a booth to sit in and waited about 5 minutes for anyone to take our order for drinks. I think there were 3 people at the bar, and a couple in another booth, so it... More

Inexpensive and plentiful - typical Mexican chain restaurant. The salsa is yummy, with plenty of cilantro. Love their queso sauce too!

When I go to John Island I always eat there. Very good. Tried the fish tacos last night---think that will be my item every visit now. Like the pork burritos also. Very good service and clean. The only draw back is the parking.
