Best Mexican Food in Ellis County

I eat here (usually for lunch) once a week. The food is always very good and fresh. They bring out two different homemade salsas, warm and cold, and a small free queso with your chips at lunch. I have tried many different items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The staff is always... read more

Outstanding value and wonderful taste! From the carne asada to the cheese enchiladas, all the food was outstanding. Must try the refried beans which are out of this world. Wonderful waiting staff and nice laid back location in downtown Waxahachie. Give it a try!

The service was great and the food was fresh. The salsa was good! They served a hot and spicy salsa as well as the traditional salsa. I had #13 beef cooked with onions and jalapeños. We plan to come back 😄.

The salsa is the best I have tasted, it is spicy though! I got the Azteca fajitas vegetarian style, and they offered to substitute grilled cactus! Delicious! My only complaint is I could not eat all of huge amounts they brought!
