“Fun place, good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

On a Friday evening, you want to get there a little early. We did and scored a nice table at the front while we watched as people streamed in after us. The service was friendly, caring, and prompt. The food was quite good but I didn't try the margaritas. I'm a beer drinker and they had enough choices to please me. It's a neighborhood restaurant in a delightful neighborhood in Oakhurst, Decatur. I highly recommend.

“Awesome place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

Been going here for several years now since my wife and I live close by. It's always awesome! The food is delicious and the staff is always friendly and personable. They make an effort to get to know you and treat you like friends, not just customers. I highly recommend checking it out!

“Consistently good neighborhood Mex - Best Margaritas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

I'm surprised that this isn't more highly rated really. I've been going here for the last few years for a few reasons. First, the margaritas are excellent. No, you won't get them frozen, if you want that, go somewhere else. If you want margaritas made with mix, also go somewhere else. But if you want margaritas made with lime juice, good tequila, etc, and not weak, then come here. Second, the food is solid. If it doesn't blow you away, fine but it is really quite good and consistent. Plus the staff are personable, you can eat inside or outside, and enjoy the neighborhood. So, if you want to have a good solid Mexican meal, good strong margaritas in a neighborhood setting, this is the place to go.

“If you are brave enough...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2008

If you are brave enough try the Devil's water, tequila infused with hot peppers. Everything here is homemade and you can taste the difference. I love the veggie Cuban sandwich.
