Best Mexican Food in the City

The outside looks nondescript, but inside the food is delicious and (as far as we can tell) authentic. The deliciousness starts with the chips that come out before the meal and usually doesn't stop. Often, one can hear the waiters conversing with customers in their native Spanish.

Food was fresh and good flavor. Service was a little slow. We had to request refills. Prices were high for amount of food.

Stopped in here for lunch on a Wednesday early afternoon. Was given a dinner menu with prices from $12-$19 per entrée. Asked for a lunch menu and was provided with a 3 x 5 card with six different chicken specials written on it. Had the two chicken tamales for $6.95. Came with rice and beans and was fair at the...

Enchiladas are how I gauge Mexican food. In Rapid City the trend is to use flour tortillas and not smother them in sauce. You get corn tortillas here, but no sauce...dry as a desert. Also, everything has sour cream which is wrong. The service is average, the food is overpriced for what you get and it's not prepared and seasoned... More
