“Best of the Mex in Petosky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you're looking for a 5 gallon Margarita in a sombrero, this is not the place. But if you looking for genuine tex-mex, prepared fresh daily, this is your place. It's super casual (think diner) and right in the middle of town.

“Authentic Mehicano!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

It is cooked right in front of you. better than say Taco Bell. make sure you order the Guacamole which is made to order. The prices are very reasonable and everything is served with a smile.

“Good food, a couple notches above Taco Bell”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

You walk in and a friendly waiter greets you and takes your order. He gave me a number to take to my seat, and said they would bring my enchiladas out to me as soon as they were ready. The food was good, but I was disappointed that I didn't get chips and salsa like you typically do at Mexican restaurants.

“Not your usual Tex-Mex”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Wonderfully authentic...we have dined here several times, and have also gotten meals to-go. Everything is excellent, and the staff is very helpful.
