Who would have expected great Mexican food in South Carolina? We judge a mexican restuarant by its salsa, the salsa was varied, there were 2 types--salsa and pico de gallo, when dumped together it was A+. First of all, the name has changed, this address is for El Pablano, but their menu is the same as when it was La... More

Didn't expect to find Mexican food in rural South Carolina-and we were even more surprised to find excellent Mexican food! Well prepared, not just the typical chain restaurant offerings either.

What a neat surprise off the interstate during our travels. I had one of the best nacho grande dishes ever. Homemade chips were perfect. My husband lived in San Antonio for years, so he has had some very GOOD Mexican food. He said his "3 Amigos" dish was the best he has ever had. That's saying a lot. He compares... More

You can pretty much count on good food, fast. We love the vegetarian items. The chips are warm and crisp and on the table as soon as you are seated.

We were driving through Newberry on our way home and I was feeling in the mexican mood, saw this place and decided to try it. LOVED IT! It was cheap and delicious. Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought so... Lunch time (as we were leaving) it was packed out.

We were driving on I-26 and decided to eat - we were headed for the Zaxby's and I spotted the Mexican restaurant next door and the parking lot was full. So we took a chance and stopped. Were not disappointed and enjoyed our meal. The chips were crisp, the salsa just the right amount of spicy, and I can't say... More

This is probably the worst review I have ever written but the food was horrid! People were friendly, atmosphere fine, but food was awful! I had a chicken dish. It ended up being shredded chicken mobbed by gooey cheese. No spice at all. No flavor. Really a shame because Mexican food is hard to mess up. Would ever try ths... More

I have eaten here numerous times with the family and it has always been delicious. They are friendly and service has been good. They have several TV's in one area but also have other areas that are more quiet in case you don't want the distraction. It is great for kids and they are very accommodating with changes or off...
