Average Mexican Restaurant in Sumter

We were coming back from a long day hike in Congaree National Park as a group of about 12. We called on our way and they had a big table ready for us when we arrived. Unfortunately, it was Sunday and they couldn't serve alcohol. Other than that, the food and service were pretty good. Our server... read more

I enjoy this place... keeping in mind that it is Americanized Mexican food. You can ask for the spicy salsa to dip chips in for no extra charge. I recommend getting the Jumbo margarita and enjoying the food. I order the same dish every time I go so I can't speak on the food in great extent. I love ordering... More

For the area we consider this the best mexican food. That being said it' definitely not the best mexican food I have had. If you are in need of a mexican food fix it is the best Sumter has.

Eat here if you don't like to taste your food. Salsa tasted like catsup. Tacos were too greasy. Welcome to the plate of hard refried beans! Yum yum! Will never eat here again.

I was now more than 5 times at Yucatan's with my husband and always loved it. The fajitas are our favorite. Their margaritas are delicious and a great deal.

Cheap decor, slow service, passable but not good food. I would not eat here again. I was only in Sumter one night, but if this passes for one of the best places in town, I hope I don't return.

Friendly staff. Worst steaks fajitas I have ever had though. No flavor and steaks were not grilled but seemed sautéed. Onions and bell peppers were very over cooked. Food cold when came out. Don't know how they received 4 stars.

Repeat customer. Always pleased with service and food. Facility is clean, staff is friendly, and food delivered quickly. Prices are well within reasonable for all entries and specials. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

Good service, friendly staff...tamale left much to be desired. I was impressed by the wide variety offered on the menu, and wished I'd had one of the more unique dishes. My friend had the shrimp/mixed fajitas, which looked and smelled great. May well be the best Mexican food in town, but it's not exceptional.
