Fast & Friendly Service

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. Ordered the steak salad. It didn't look like much but it was still good! They bring you fresh tortillas and chips & salsa on the house :)

Almost any time my son is back in town this is one of his favorites. Best chips and queso in town. Love the fajitas and the chicken fajita enchiladas are to die for. Freshly made tortillas are also awesome.

Came during off hour. Not fond of seasoned chips. Queso was runny. Food was luke warm at best. Certainly not up to previous visits. Normally make this a stop when I come to town to visit. Will need to rethink that priority into the future.

Love the atmosphere. The waiters are great. Even if it isn't on the menu, they can probably get it for you. The prices are right on!

Had a dinner with colleagues on a business trip while staying in Kilgore. It has a large menu that is reasonably priced. We all tried different things and everyone was happy. I also enjoyed the margaritas and the bottomless baskets of chips. I would go back next time I return to Kilgore for business.

So it's a Mexican restaurant. But knowing I am a Burger aficionado, I was told this is where you get the best burger in town. The burger was good. The burger was large. I certainly got my money's worth... but it wasn't "great". It had a slight onion flavor to it and it was slightly on the dry side. Not... More
