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.

For me, it's the quality of the chips and salsa that usually determines how much I will enjoy a Mexican restaurant. Theirs is great. It is very fresh and properly prepared just like their entrees.

Excellent as usual! Authentic food and service. We love this place. Food is always fresh and hot. If something is wrong they don't argue with you. They just go get the problem fixed. Management are super nice even out away from the restaurant. Great place to eat!
