My family has eaten here on two or three occasions and I see nothing special. The salsa is not good at all. This place is nice but like I say, nothing special.

Had drinks & supper here on a Friday night--really tasty/spicy fish tacos! Also enjoyed the enchiladas and some southwestern "eggrolls". Service was prompt & friendly. Nice place!

Family of four passing through on vacation. Excellent food/large portions. Waiter was one of the best we've had, very polite and attentive.

Nothing to write home about. Guac was pretty smooth, I prefer more chunks. Prices were steep. Both kids and myself had one item off the ala cart menu and my husband had a meal and it still came to $50! Not sure how.

I miss my TexMex foods in TX, but this came very close to what I am more used to in this part of the oountry than any other. I would recommend it to all who love Mexican with great choices.

I travel for business almost every week of the year and eat almost exclusively at locally owned restaurants everywhere I go. Mexican food is always a high priority each day. With that said, this was one of the best Mexican dishes I've had in a long time. That is the good news. The bad news is that I can't remember... More

While attending Bonnaroo this year I was trying to find something different for dinner. This restaurant already boasted great reviews but growing up in the Southwest it is very, very hard to please me when it comes to Mexican food. Imagine my surprise when I ventured into this hole-in-the-wall. I wound up eating here 4 times that week and I... More

Four of us met for dinner from Nashville and Georgia. It was great! Lots of food, but best of all, it was tasty, hot and the staff friendly. The salsa was great--the chips endless. About a mile west of I-24, exit 114, it's easy to get to. The Chile Poblanos (chile rellenos) were the best I have eaten! Everyone was... More

Went through Manchester traveling from FL on and thought we'd take a chance on this restaurant. The atmosphere was average, but very clean (including restrooms) and the the food was awesome! I had the buritto verde and I can honestly say, I haven't had Mexican food that good for a long time. I was with 2 other people and their... More

While on a business trip I was told by a local individual that the Mexican food here was great and they were correct! Salsa has just the right hint of spicy and the food was grilled to perfections. Only complaint was that I ate too much! My order of the "special" could have feed two people. Service was quick and... More
