“Not your ordinary Mexican food - YUM!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

My husband and I are big proponents of researching restaurants prior to trying them, so when we were looking for a new place to try this past Friday night this one stood out on trip advisor. All of the ratings were Average or better (a higher percentage being above average) and all of the reviews sounded appealing. Needless to say, we gave it a go and were not disappointed! The food was delicious and portions were huge. My husband got the "Mexican Flag Burrito," each burrito had a different sauce and all were filled with steak. I had the "Camarones de Mojo y ajo," i.e., shrimp with caramelized garlic, avocados, red onions, tomatoes and rice. It was incredible. Large butterfly shrimp cooked to perfection. The prices were also incredibly reasonable. I couldn't believe it for Clarksville, TN. We will absolutely be returning.

“Our new favorite Mexican Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

The food was fresh and well cooked. The chips taste like they were cooked in fresh oil and the grilled Salmon I had tasted like it was cooked in a clean grill without the carbon bits that are so common in other places. I like that they mainly serve black beans instead of pinto. Much fancier that your typical Mexican place.

“Good meal for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I enjoy this place quite a bit, it is fairly inexpensive and you get a hefty portion. The service can be a bit slow at times and left without something to drink for a while. Overall though it is a quality restaurant. Be sure to try their alcoholic drinks which are made excellently.

“Good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is your typical Mexican restaurant. Food tastes the same as the other 35 here in Clarksville. Nothing to write home about, but you won't be disappointed.

“Happy hour margaritas: enough said ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Their margaritas are on happy hour everyday (from 5-7pm I believe) and they are so tasty! Great Mexican food; my favorite is the chicken, cheese, and rice...it's simple but delicious. A great place to go with friends before taking in a movie next door.
