The best Chile relleno in the valley

I consider myself a purist when it comes to Chile rellenos. These are the best! Real Chiles! Not canned. The coating is light, not heavy breading. Delicious! I will definitely come back.

There was a very large dinner party while we were there, which meant that our service was extremely slow. The food was good.

We asked cashiers at supermarket across the street for a recommendation and this was it . We were hopeful but we're so sorry we took their suggestion. We should have known when we saw the old drive through to the previous Burger King still standing.

Mexican food should be packed with flavor, and should be served either hot or warm. Sadly the food lacked these qualities. My husband had a "Burrito" which was huge, flavorless, and smothered with enchilada sauce???? A basket of tortillas with side dishes of salsa and white sauce was brought to the table. The tortillas were old and a bit greasy,... More

The choices of restaurants while visiting Luray were very few - many places are now closed. We chose this restaurant based on the review and were not impressed. Our server was very friendly and the service was very fast. We both enjoyed the complementary chips with salsa and some kind of delicious white dip. Our entrees were not great -... More

We liked this restaurant, it's good for families and the food was pretty good. The prices were reasonable and I have to say the beer was the perfect temperature! We'd go back if we were in the area again.

Best Tex Mex in the area... Only Tex Mex in the area. The service was very fast and friendly but the food was not so good. The margarita tasted watered down. Probably the worst I've ever had. The sangria was red wine and thin with no ice or fruit. The fajitas came out quickly and were hot! I love hot... More

This place serves up tasty Mexican food. Our margaritas were delicious, and though our service was a tad slow, we weren't in a hurry at all, so we weren't bothered. Check it out in Luray.

Don't let the fact this used to be a McDonald's fool you. This place is GOOD! The salsa is homemade and fantastic as is the white cheese dip. They have a Talapia dish, I believe it is called Pescado Yukatan, that is easily my favorite Mexican dish of all time! Their fajitas are awesome, but I never eat them now... More
