Our Favorite Mexican Food in Nac

Although this is a chain and we usually like local Mexican food in other places we have lived, this is about the best there is in Nac. Things we have learned . . . you can ask for hotter salsa than the regularly served, 2 can split the pick 4 items for a less expensive meal, the carne asada is... read more

My husband and I had the beef fajitas for two. They were amazing. You can cut them with a fork. Their charra beans were great too.

I was staying in town with a co worker and he recommended this place. It has a very nice look on the outside. We were seated and served quickly. I tried a baked fish meal which was topped with a cream sauce and large peeled tail on shrimp and mushrooms peppers etc. It was fantastic the fish was tender but... More

Catered the lunch portion fajitas for a luncheon in Nacogdoches. Both the chicken and beef fajitas had a good taste. Their tortillas seem to be homemade and were very good. I will use them again if I need texmex catered in Nacogdoches. They delivered on-time. The person I spoke with on the phone was pleasant and helpful. To be fair,... More

My new favorite mexican restaurant! Super affordable. My party ordered the green chili chicken enchiladas, tamales, tortilla soup, sour cream enchiladas, and tacos. The tacos were okay but everything else ordered was perfect! The pinacoladas are fantastic. Nice atmosphere and colorful, inviting decor. The waitstaff was very attentive. Overall a wonderful experience! Will be going back again... and again!

The food is great as well as the service. The Tortillas are made in house and are brought to the table hot. They will bring you honey and butter for a tasty topping for the tortilla. The salsa and chips are wonderful. Fajitas and enchiladas are yummy.

We visited The Jalapeno Tree restaurant on the recommendation of my daughter. This is a very nice restaurant for the small city of Nacogdoches. We waited only a few minutes to be seated and generally the food was very good. I had the Chili Relleno which was tasty, but not great. My wife had chicken tacos (flour tortillas) with a... More

We enjoyed the best Sunday brunch meal. The restraunt was packed with local families and we could see why as soon as the food was delivered. Amazing Mexcian with authentic flavors and friendly atmosphere. Pricing is reasonable and portions are large.
