We ate outside on the patio and is was relaxing after a long day of traveling. The food was good and the service was great. We came late but that it did not appear to effect the staff. We had the enchiladas and the portion size was large.

Took my family to this restaurant for dinner while we were in Bristol. The server was great, the food was good and the atmosphere was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant if you're in the Bristol, Va area.

I am a Bristol resident and have frequented this spot many times. Service has always been bad, the only person who is nice is the manager. The last time I was there was for a birthday outing, waited 10 minutes before being acknowledged by the staff, and then when I was acknowledged we still had to wait 15-20 minutes. The... More

We were on the road and stopped for dinner. After being quickly seated, chips & salsa arrived almost immediately. Disappointingly, the chunky salsa was the highlight of the meal, but fortunately, the chips & salsa were replenished rapidly. An unenthusiastic waitress took our order and the meal arrived in a timely fashion. One meal was incorrect; however our waitress, who... More

The service was slow and unenthusiastic to say the least. They didn't seem to care that you sat there for a long while without drinks. I must warn you about something in regards to their food. Be careful with what you choose on this menu. It was supposed to be really "mild" but it wasn't. What I got was a... More

The food was delicious. We went at a very busy time and had a short wait. We left feeling very stuffed. We would consider going again with out families.

Our plane was delayed over night,and we had to stay all night in Bristol. We discovered this place in a shopping area near our hotel. The food was some of the best Mexican we have ever had, and we have been in Texas, Central America, and Mexico many times. I highly recommend the Tortilla Soup, and if you order the... More

We stopped here and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had steak and chicken tacos, taco salad, fajitas and a combo platter. Everything was good, the service was wonderful and we will stop here again.
