Not open on Sunday, so we headed out during the week ...

The boys and I have always wanted to try this place, as has the wife, but we only pass it on the way to and from Church, and it is closed on Sunday. In an indecisive moment, we headed out there and had a Wednesday dinner. (1) the place is packed. On Wednesday. And the atmosphere is... read more

We dine here often. The food is consistently great. Iced cold beer with cold mugs and good happy hour margaritas. We had my Dad's 80th birthday party here in a private room. The service is outstanding. Don't miss the chicken sour cream nachos and freshly made salsa.

The best part of my staff development day is coming here to eat. It is a unique restaurant for Mexican food. I try to have a different dish every time. I find the ingredients to be fresh. The service is great and the people very friendly.

Going here was a great surprise. The service is excellent, the food selection is good, and obviously many others are aware of the yummy food at this restaurant.

This is our go to place for excellent Mexican Food. Our favorites (so far after 20 years): Maria Felix, Lupita, Tacos Mexticos, Fajita Salad (like no other), Shrimp Cocktail and both shrimp entrees. I should have attached the menu, but there are so many excellent choices. Arturo makes you feel welcome and part of the family.

Have driven by many times noticing how busy they are. Finally went there around 6:00pm on a Friday before they got busy. The good: the food. The bad: The service. The not so hot: The food. When I ordered a bowl of queso, the waiter asked cup or bowl? A bowl, I said for the second time. He asked do... More

The service was average and so was the food. The chips tasted old and there was no green salsa option. I was not impressed.

Stopped here with family on a visit to McKinney. I didn't catch any employee names but they were all wonderful. We were happily greeted at the door. We had an awesome waiter who encouraged us to speak in Spanish. The salsa was good. The beef fajitas were good. Oh, and the ice cream and sopapillas was a delicious sweet cinammony... More

Never too crowded and the food is excellent. Reasonably priced and the service is always good. The hot sauce is great.
