If you are planning on going, get your money out and hand it to some homeless person. It will be better spent. I see someone wrote dog food, ha, I think they have better food than this place. It's an old pizza place atmosphere and service was bad at best.

I live in south texas so it may be that I'm just used to other (better) Mexican food. The portion in is good but the flavor is no bueno. Would like to to give them a good review because the staff was great but NO.

Service was a little slow tonight. The screaming child behind us also dampened the mood a bit. Normally this is a great place to eat with a fun bright atmosphere. It's in a strip mall but don't let that discourage you. The food is really good and the salsa bar is a unique feature. The fish tacos (both fried and... More

Wow, the food here was great. If you are looking for high end, this is not the place. But the food is full of flavor, well priced and the restaurant is clean with a nice atmosphere. The salsa bar is a great way to be able to try all the salsa you want. I would definitely come back!

We were passing though on travel and checked TripAdvisor for a recommendation. I was shocked to find the restaurant in a shopping center but the food was delicious. The large 24oz pomegranate margarita was tasty but quite pricey ($11.99) the large lime was only $7.50. The salsa bar was fun, getting to try different kinds of salsa was great for... More

Been struggling for years wishing for good Mex food on this end of the country. Here it is!!! This is a classic small family run shop that is hitting all the right marks. From the salsa to the tequila to the rellenos (mark of a true Mexican chef!), this is a great restaurant.

We were craving Mexican food, so we walked over from the Hotel Roanoke over. It was not crowded when we got there, and ordered right away. I had the number seven, which was the beef faijtas. They have a station of chips and salsa that you can get and fix the way that you want. They were really good, and... More

What a neat place, we just had lunch and I ordered too much. I had the vegetarian quesadilla it was delicious and the black beans were just right, I hate refried beans, in fact I will not eat them. My Husband had a fahitia which was delicious, we especially liked the salsa bar, something we have never seen before and... More
