“Excellent value and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The décor is very nice with beautiful chairs and tables brought in from Mexico. I had excellent chicken fajitas served with two tasty tortillas that were served warm wrapped in foil. There was enough for two if you ordered extra tortillas. Pat had quesadilla which was just ok. The refried beans were outstanding but the Mexican rice was a little dry.

“Really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

Soon after arriving for dinner this evening, my wife discovered a lovely lipstick print on her glass. Not hers. Upon telling the server, he LAUGHED! No offense to anyone, but hygiene crosses in to all cultures. Terrible service. Terrible food. Terrible prices. Terrible waste of time. Recommendation, go to Taco Bell. Better food.

“Sad Cinco de Mayo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

The restaurant is very nice inside and very clean. The margaritas are good. Food was ok. I ordered a fajita and the tortilla was cold and inside had very little chicken. The restaurant was advertising on the radio that they were having live music and lots of fun and the place was dead.

“Terrible Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

While traveling home from a trip up to Illinois we stopped to enjoy our last "vacation" meal and were ready to spend some time and money at this restaurant. The food was good and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

What ruined the whole experience was our server. I have never experienced worse service...and that is saying a lot. From the start she was extremely rude, clearly didn't even want to talk to us, and then ignored us for most of the rest of the meal. We were hoping to have several drinks, desert, maybe more snacks, and this is after we both also ordered full meals. She slammed the plates around when bussing, tried to give us the bill several times when we were definitely not finished, wouldn't take orders for additional drinks, slammed the fried ice cream down, and eventually refused to even look at either of us.

It was a very disappointing end to an otherwise great trip. We complained to the manager who didn't seem surprised and gave us 15% off. I'm still mystified as to why she was so rude, I would have been happy to leave a handsome tip if the service experience had been remotely positive.

“Mexican food in the South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I was kind of skeptical at first because how good can a Mexican Restaurant be in Kentucky, My husband and I were surprised, the food was good, the restaurant was clean and decorated where you feel comfortable. The waiter was excellent, he never let our glasses go empty and made it a point to stop by for s quick check to see if everything was ok. I would eat there again and recommend it to others.
