Nice Mexican restaurant

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.

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

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!

The food is very delicious! We love the cheese dip and the salsa. My favorite menu item is the chimichanga with beef. My husband likes the seafood chimichanga. The servers are polite, friendly, and very attentive to diners needs. The food is always served piping hot! I love adding their salsa to the rice, it's so flavorful! I think the... More

Food is always good though I have to take some marks off for giving me the wrong fajitas. I ordered beef and I got chicken. It was the only thing that went wrong. My husband got his food and it was correct. Service was fast and friendly. Overall it was a good meal, especially for a Tuesday.

Went with family and service was very slow. Staff were very nice and helpful. Food was average at best. I've had better, even right here in Bristol.

This has now become one of my favorite restaurants in Bristol! Definitely going back! And I do agree with another poster, it is hard to find if you're using a GPS. If it helps anyone out, it's across from the Cookout and Walmart/Sam's.
