Good Mexican food

A nice-looking place (always on the highway, but that's Cortez) with good solid food and a Margarita that was not too watery. Good service.

We have just become full-time RVers & we decided that we were going to try local places rather than chains when we eat out. And this was a great introduction to local restaurants. Hubby had carne asada fajitas. And I had a chimichanga and enchilada (both chicken) combo. The food was great. Pretty plates and tasty. We were seated promptly... More

Some of the best mole and chile rellenos that we have ever had. Very friendly service and great "real" margaritas.

Great service--and decent food. Also has a bar. The restaurant was very busy but they bring you chips and salsa and you can order a drink. The décor was very Mexican.

We keep going back to this local's favorite, lunch or dinner. Large menu and generous portions, great service, nice decor. I love the chicken quesadilla for a meal, delicious, but it's all good.

If you are looking for a real Mexican meal that is not afraid to add some spice then this is for you! Interesting menu, including plenty of seafood options. I chose the seafood burrito, highly recommend. Prices are from $8.00 up. Service was good, food came in a timely manner. I would go back.

It was astonishing to find this quality in this size town. I can't remember the last time I ate Mexican food this good. Kept going back.

I met my dad here for lunch. We shared the steak fajitas and each got 3 fajitas. It was super plentiful and the waiter brought us both flour and corn tortillas. The fajitas were really tasty! Service was quick and friendly
