“Blah, blah, and little of it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Still have not figured out why the this place was busy. Maybe it is the margarita which we didn't have or the people haven't tried the better places in town. The salsa seemed to be a can of pureed tomatoes with some cilantro mixed in. I had one of the worst tacos with what seemed to be a stale shell along with two small enchiladas and taquitos that are done better at convenience stores. My wife's fajita salad was OK but about the size of a side salad. There is better in Kearney, go there instead.
