“Easy Mexican in Helen with parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Inexpensive large portions of Mexican food. Great salsa! Sit in or out. Inside one room has very festive fun paintings that add a lot to the atmosphere. Nice folks and good food. In crowded Helen its good to have a standbys where you can park and get a table pretty. Quickly with tons of food. One tip the sides are regular portions while the entrees have rice and bean platters with them.

“This is the worst restaurant in Helen.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Food was cold (pre-cooked), and the high priced margarita had no alcohol. I never saw the waitress after the food came. We were totally ignored until we had to pay.

Stay away, a lot of better restaurants to choice from on Helen.

“Great portion sizes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Cheap prices and huge portion sizes. Usually I can always eat my entire plate but I couldn't finish and it was the lunch portion. Would hate to see how big the supper portion is. haha.

“Fun, good music and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We go often to this alfresco dining experience. The is live music Thursday night thru Sunday night, with some spectacular local talents. The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. Watch the tourist world go by from your table, and it is quite lively and fun during Oktoberfest. We never fail to make new friends every time we go. Rudy does a great job with this place!
