Excellent Food

Traveling thru the area, was referred by a local to the restaurant. Clean place, good service, excellent food and a overall great value for the price.

We had take-out and boy were they good! Oaxacan - good. The tacos were the perfect proportion of lettuce, tomato, cilantro, avocado and lime to fish. Good reason to stop in Salina!

We stopped in Salina on our way home to Canada for gas and supper. There were plenty of "fast food" places, but we saw this restaurant and decided to stop here for supper. We're glad we did as the food was superb with fast, friendly, service and large portions. The complimentary chips and salsa were home made and excellent.

Large Mexican restaurant just off I-70 in Salina. Food was very good. Service was very friendly and prompt. Only beer available. Good parking. Only negative was the interior lighting was too bright and the interior decoration was a little plain. Definitely not a "theme" Mexican restaurant but still an excellent choice in this town. Will be back again if in... More

A great Mexican restaurant in the middle of Utah's high desert region. Within walking distance of motel accommodations; very reasonable prices and excellent food.

Service was excellent. No delays in serving the food, and served hot. Very large portions, but could use a little more spice to the flavor...kind of flat.
