“Good Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Since this is the only true Mexican place in Cortland, what can you say but it's the best. Good, consistent food.

“We drive from Syracuse to eat here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012 via mobile

I love the food we order the burro calcenetto. I'm not sure how to spell that. It comes with chicken, steak, taqutios, cheese quesadilla, and a giant burrito. It's two meals.

“Delicious food, very fast service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

I love this place! We go very often because it's casual, kid friendly, fairly inexpensive and the food is great! It's definitely not gourmet, but it is hearty mexican-- loaded with all the essentials- rice, beans, cheese, etc. They give free unlimited chips with delicious fresh salsa. Menu is huge, lots of combos and platters. We are always happy with our selections. Cheese flautas are amazing, fajitas come out sizzling. Once you order, your entrees arrive in a matter of minutes! The atmosphere is casual-- could use a little sprucing up. Owners and servers are incredibly nice and accomodating.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2010

Typical Mexican restaurant food selection. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was as expected, nothing special. Price was reasonable. Margaritas seemed very very weak. Would I go here again - doubt it. We have a favorite Mexican Restaurant near our home town and nothing has come close to it yet.

This restaurant is ok if you are limited on choices or in a hurry. Would not be my first pick in Cortland, NY.
