Good food

I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the food was prepared. The quality and prices were reasonable & this is a good stop for Mexican food if you're in the neighborhood.

Best Mexican in this area. Food excellent per American taste with wide variety and full portions. My daughter likes the chicken fajitas, my wife and I the numbered meals. Prices very reasonable, service good and attentive. Atmosphere pleasant, relaxing, and clean, including the restrooms. A popular spot with a well-earned reputation.

This is not a super upscale Mexican place - it is very good Mexican food, with good service at reasonable prices. The portions are large. The salsa is excellent - all you want - they will keep bringing chips and salsa til you tell them to stop. Try the Enchiladas Verde or the Carnitas (this one for 2, huge portion).

Been there twice and probably never again. First time had chicken fajitas and the second time had enchiladas. The food was just bad. Taste wise can't compare it to a real Mexican food.

This is a very popular Mexican restaurant in the North Macon area, and it's easy to see why. The Mexican food may be the best in Macon. I'm a big fan of the "original" chimichanga, which offers up two chimis and beans. They'll give you rice and beans if you ask. Good, fresh ingredients with the salad on the top... More
