“Great food,prices and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

If you have not eaten here, then you should. I have eaten a lot of Mexican and this place is great. Always friendly and prompt. Good food and prices are good. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting Mexican food in the tri-cities.

“Same old same old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Your stereotypical East TN "mexican" food. As a former TX resident this is barely above microwave quality /tv dinner quality. Its not that bad but also not that good. If you need a place to "flop" and eat something cheap I suppose it would do.

“Same as Taco Bell -- Actually - Taco Bell is better!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I grew up on Mexican food on the Texas/Mexico border. This has to be the WORST Mexican food I have eaten in my 60 years. Rolling taco meat in a tortilla and pouring red sauce (tasted more like spicey marinary) does not make an enchilada. The taco's at Taco Bell or better and cheaper!. Whenever we travel we always try and find great Mexican food using Travel Adviser. I've had great luck until now! The owner may be Mexican but he has made it Tennessean....

If you ever end up in East Orlando Florida give AZTECA a try. We have waited 16- years and finally have a great Mexican restaurant here.

I should have tried the tamale's, but then again they are more difficult to make than enchiladas and tacos.

“, simple basic atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

I went for luch and did not go away hungry! What an amazing value for your dollar too.

Interesting choices on the menus mean there is something for everyone.

The location is very simple and basic, but you can't disagree with the quality and value if you are looking more for good food vs. fancy atmosphere.
