“Safe stop one the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

After traveling, this was a good choice for lunch. Only a short wait on a busy Sunday. Staff was attentive and the salsa was hot! The only draw back was the acoustics : the "lady" at the next table had a voice sharper than any Gensu knife ...

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

I remember the food being much better than it was - disappointed in the service and the food was only OK for lunch.

“First choice, whenever I am in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Absolutely love everything! We have never been able to find a salsa that rivals their recipe, even if another restaurant chain has tried to copy it. Favorites include wedding chicken, chili con carne & chicken ala parilla. You really can't go wrong with any choice.

The waitstaff is pleasant and attentive. The food is excellent and authentic. The decor is pleasing to the eye - makes you feel like you're visiting Mexico.

Family dining at its best....family owned, traditional recipes, spicy, authentic, all freshly prepared, no frozen dishes...the best Lemon Drop Martini's in town.
