“Like most of Colby, very average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The restaurant was VERY fast to serve our food. However after eating it I'm pretty sure that's because almost nothing is fresh and not pre-made.

Not a lot of choices in Colby, KS. The room was old but nice enough. The staff were nice, the service was fast. The food wasn't anything like regular good mexican food you might find in the adjacent states (Colorado, Texas), but wasn't awful.

You have very few choices in Colby, and the food was ok here. Honestly, I probably wish I had just done a fast food place and just moved on...

Prices were pretty high for what we got. Again not expensive ($8-$15) per plate, but wasn't a ton better than Taco Johns :)

Plenty of space, and handled the kids well though.

“Very Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Don't judge this book by its cover. The restaurant is located inside a shabby motel, but the food was very good. The enchiladas rice and beans tasted great and seemed to be fresh. The service was good and friendly. Worth a visit.

“Top-notch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The dinner we had at his restaurant was about the best we had on our two-week trip. Fajitas and margaritas were fantastic. (Be warned: don't plan on driving very far--or even staying awake--after the delicious margarita!) We were there on a very busy night, and the service was also outstanding.

“Decent food, a bit bland. Not much choice in Colby though.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

There weren't many sit down restaurant options in Colby and we had seen good reviews of this restaurant. The food was a little bland but the service was good and quick. Good chips and salsa.
