“Great Mexican food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great Mexican food at reasonable prices especially considering it is in a resort area. I had the make your own pick 2 combo for about $10. There was also a pick 3. The service was great. If you order a mug of beer take the small size instead of the larger one which cost more per ounce.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I thought this place was cool and the decor was over the top Mexican and very fun.
We had the combo nachos and took home a big box of food after we finished lunch.
The waiter was very nice and it was a cheap meal.

“Excellent Food, Atmosphere & Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had a big group of people and they seated us in an area all to ourselves, so that was a bonus!

It is decorated with mural paintings of old Spanish settings, nicely done.

It was Clean. Staff were Fun and helpful and quick.

I had Shrimp Quesadilla which had big shrimp and was delicious. My husband really enjoyed his dinner as well as the rest of the group. The group has eaten here every year on Memorial Day for many years, so that should tell you something.

The chips & salsa were very good. I can't handle hot, but I could this salsa. You could make it hotter if you wished, they had whatever you needed.

They have a full bar, so you can compliment your meal with whatever you wish.

Prices were reasonable and you got a Full meal.

We will return!
