“Decent Tacos, Great Atmosphere but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2010

My husband and I checked out this place after moving to Battle Creek a few months ago. Just about everyone we ran into had great things to say about this place. We ordered a la cart and had a little bit of everything. The shredded chicken tacos were decent although I'm almost positive the tortillas are bought in. I hate to say it but their rice and beans were awful. Just about every Mexican restaurant I've been to totally disregards how much effort should go into them. The beans were bland (you can tell they are when they are pale and have copious amounts of cheese to cover up how tasteless they are) and the rice is stale and dry, not to mention neon orange.

The atmosphere is great but to those who want real authentic Mexican cuisine, save your money.

“Very nice family Mexican Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2010

If you want a five star dining experience than drive two hours East to Detroit.

If you want better Mexican food drive 20 hours South.

The food was very good. The best we've had in Michigan. The atmosphere and service were both perfect for a family owned Mexican restaurant.

“Unique Little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2010

This is where I had the best meal I ate in Battle Creek! Enchiladas the size of my head, and I swear they were sooooooooooo very good! The ambiance is perfect - bright colors, great decor. The staff was friendly. I will definitly be back the next time I'm in BC.
