“Pretty Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The food was good, and the service was quite fast, considering I was in a group of 15, and the place was packed. Overall, I'm calling this a winner.

“Friendly quick service, fun atmosphere, perfect location to eat before the game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

If you are going to Braly Stadium to see the UNA Lions, or just relaxing in downtown Florence, this is a great place to chill. The staff are very friendly, the service good, the food good. There is a large private parking lot right next door, and parking on the street is cheap too. Easy walk to UNA. If you are used to a la carte, they don't have it on the menu but several items can be ordered if you ask.

“Great Location Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We really enjoy good Mexican Food. The location is right downtown Florence adjacent to the University of North Alabama. The wait staff is young and energetic and always have a smile. One of our favorite places.

“Our favorite Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

The food is always delicious and the service is always prompt and courteous. The white cheese dip is awesome. I also love the chimichanga, burritos, and the Rosiechanga. They often offer new items on the menu. The latest addition was fish tacos, which I have not tried. Love the atmosphere (although noisy at busy times) and the decor. The outside landscaping, along the side of the building, is also much appreciated.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Very disappointing. You would think from the number of cars in the parking lot that they serve good Mexican food. Wrong. Food is mediocore at best. Functions more as a bar than as a good restaurant.
