“Decent Mexican Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Just a good FAST lunch menu. Nothing I would consider special just decent food and fast service. I go there often when I am in a hurry!

“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

This is not one of the better Mexican food restaurants. The menu is very limited and the service was okay. Half of the restaurant was blocked off and the lights were off even on the bar side. The fajitas at the next table came out and wasn't even sizzling. It would beoOK in a pinch. Just don't expect a whole lot.

“Good Mexican Roadstop on I44”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

I read the reviews and decided to try it as needed a good Mexican meal. Good menu selection. Had the #4 combo with a guacamole dip adder. Food was fresh (especially the dip), with a modestly priced Mexican cerveza.
Felicia gave prompt and friendly service.
Only complaint is that this place could use a serious ambiance upgrade. Florescent lighting and Mexican food aren't so compatible.
But if a prompt and tasty meal at a reasonable price is the goal- well worth the effort.

“Good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The service was good. The waitress was attentive without hovering. The food was good, but nothing special.
