I ate here in September 2011 and got so sick I ended up in the hospital for 6 days with what the hospital told me was definitely E.coli poisoning. I lost a lot of blood, and I've never been that sick in my life. The service was fine and I thought it strange that my food came so quickly. Still... More

It is more authentic than any other Mexican restaurant I have been to so far in the Bartlett, Millington parts of Memphis. The carnitas are moist and wonderful. You know, when you see other native folks eatting at the site, that it's got to be good. It is!

This Mexican restaurant is located in the original Bartlett train station on Stage Rd. The food is delicious from the tortillas to the entrees. You have to try the cheese dip and salsa, the salsa is pure Mexico. My wife and I frequent here for the nachos and the wide selection of enchiladas. You will always find the beer very... More

It's not authentic as they claim, but it is good anyways. The food is TexMex style, it's very good and the prices are reasonable. The admisphere is good and people are friendly.

This is good Mexian food, altough it arrives so fast it's obviously pre-made and blasted in the microwave for serving - plates are always hot! Service is speedy, although as others have mentioned, we usually have two or more people helping us. That's okay, but if one is not as efficient it can be more difficult to determine a tip.... More

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service is friendly and quick. The atmosphere is family friendly and the younger visitors enjoy the electric train that runs around the top of the restaurant. This restaurant has never disappointed us!

They have great lunch specials and the prices are good. The chips aren't very good, the salsa is great though so it almost covers up how rough the chips taste. Service is unorganized- each time we go we have multiple people take our drink order and ask for id's- gets to be a hassle pulling out the wallet over and... More
