We could eat here every night!

Awesome authentic Mexican food in Gettysburg, PA. It's a MUST for anyone who loves Mexican food. Guacamole was one of the best we've ever had! Carnitas (pork) is to die for, melts in your mouth! You would be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't give it a try. Will definitely be back on our... read more

This place had poor service, employees that could not understand English (except for what was on the menu), and the tables and silverware were dirty. Then when it came to the food it was also poor like everything else. Taco Bell would have been a better place to eat if you wanted some type of "Mexican" food.

Would love to give 4 stars, the service is friendly and the prices are incredibly reasonable (when was the last time you got a lunch that came on 3 plates for only $6?!) However, my husband's pork was extremely salty, and, well, there's no alcohol. Would love to be able to have a Tecate with my meal. It's a big... More

Well what can you expect for Mexican in Pennsylvania. It was good for the price. Fast friendly quick service. Would go back maybe for lunch. Remember no liquor & blob if you want.

We were told by our hotel staff this was a good place to eat and they were not wrong. The service was excellent and the food came out quick. It was really good. Only problem they do not serve alcohol so no margaritas, but we were told this before and you can bring your own adult beverages.

According to TA this is one of the better choices in Gettysburg, so we went for it. And were absolutely not impreesed. We choose the sampler for two persons ang got two baked plates coverd in cheese. Main taste: cholesterol and fat. Watery guacomole. Ice in drinks tasting of chlorine. Would have given it two stars in Europe, but hey,... More

This place has become one of our frequent stops. The service is friendly and consistent EVERY time we go there. The food is yummy and the wait staff is very attentive. We never have to wait for refills or our order on any day, even the weekends. The menu has some very unique dishes and we really like their variety... More

After reading some of the reviews, we decided to give this place a try, thinking perhaps it was an authentic Mexican gem in a small town. Wrong. The names on the menu sounded great, until they arrived at our table and we found out that for cheese, they used canned nacho cheese. That's it - that sums up the quality... More

This is what I would call good value Mexican food with a family feel to it. They were very accommodating to slight changes ie hold the onions. Much better than I expected in Gettysburg ! As good as my regular spot in Bonita Florida
