Staff is so friendly!

In Chester for soccer tournament and needed a vegetarian friendly place. I had the fish tacos which were very good, and my daughter had the vegetarian burrito and a bowl of black bean soup All three dishes were very good. The chips and salsa were also very good.

Come here most Sundays after church. It's a bustling, happy place; the manager always has a smile and a hand shake to welcome you. No matter what you order, it is always good. Love the guacamole! The Quesadilla del Mar is my husband's favorite dish. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating is because in the cold... More

We had 8 golfers on the way home from Myrtle Beach stop for lunch, and they were good enough to seat us right way in two adjoining booths. Half of us thought the food was good, other half reported it to be bland and tasteless. My chicken burrito was good. Dining area is nice, and the inside looks huge compared... More

It was across the parking lot from my hotel and had decent reviews, so I decided to give it a try. In a word, fantastic. My "small" margarita was large. The chips were fresh and warm. And my enchiladas were some of the best I've ever had. Plus the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was comfortable. Total bill... More

This was our second time here, we came in to order to go. The restaurant is very nice-it has a seperate bar area. we sat there while we waited for our food. A lot of horseplay with the staff-but they were very polite and helpful with choosing things. The menu itself is very akward and confusing. Things like "choose 2... More

We were staying at the hotel next door. The food was horrible, neither of us finished our meals. Some of the adjectives my wife used; awful, horrible, gross, tasteless. Needless to say we won't ever go back even though the hotel is a regular stop for us.

We ate there because it was close to the hotel and highly recommended by the hotel staff. We had the steak tampiquena and the chicken in mole sauce. Chips and salsa were free and given to us to snack on prior to the meal. The steak tapiquena is a thin steak sauteed with green peppers, onions and spices and came... More

Great time here. Came in late. Assured we were not to late. Never felt rushed. Server was attentive, friendly and efficient. Food was served hot and delicious. Would definitely return.
