We went for dinner. The food was good and plenty of it for a decent price. Only complaint was my food came on a sizzling platter that was way too hot. everything that touched the metal burned to it and affected the flavor a bit. I told our busy waiter afterwards and he said next time I could... read more

My boss and I stopped by here in a business trip and enjoyed it very much. The lunch burrito was great and the service was also great. My boss loved the tomatillo avocado salsa and I liked the red salsa. It's a must stop the next time we're in town. The prices are very reasonable!

Made a quick trip into Waco to see my daughter at Baylor. We wanted a sit down restaurant with good Tex Mex food. The restaurant is located in an old building that has been redone in the downtown area. The food was very good as well as being fresh and hot. I had the El Presdente plate and it provided... More

This is a popular restaurant with locals and will probably have a wait at peak times. Fortunately there are lots of tables including a room for large groups in the back. I had the George which has a variety of items. It was wonderful. My teen had soft tacos, my husband had mixed fajitas and my son had a cheese... More

The atmosphere here is good, better then some restaurants, but not as good as others. The food is good but every time I have been here the service has not been good at all.

We were in Waco for a wedding and love good Mexican food. This was handy to a shopping area that we were wanting to go to. We had to wait about 20 minutes but well worth it. The salsas and chips were good. The meals fajitas were amazing. Will definitely go back.

Have been there MANY times. Food is good and fast, and plenty. The service staff is mostly good, every once in a while you get a slow one, but for the most part it is an excellent place to eat.

Yum, Yum! I generally eat here once a week because, well I just have to have Mexican food and this is a great place to get it. If you go sit in the bar area and ask for Angie (she's the bar manager and a great gal).

Good Mexican food! The sangria margarita was fantastic!! Whatever the green stuff is that comes with the salsa is the best! Even though they were busy they seated us party if 6 right away.
