The host at our motel in Townsend recommended this restaurant to my husband and me and we were not disappointed. It was within walking distance of our motel. The chips and salsa were plentiful and we got a refill even without asking. I had the shrimp soft tacos with a side of black beans and they were delicious. My husband ordered the shrimp/chicken quesadilla with shredded lettuce salad, rice and refried beans. Oh my goodness! It arrived on a plate the size of a turkey platter! We could have shared this meal and still had leftovers. The quesadilla was 2 huge tortillas (12 inches) cut into 4 sections.filled with chicken, shrimp, onions, peppers and cheese. We took 2 sections back to the motel and I had them for breakfast the next day. He could not finish the sides either. The décor is not Mexican since this place must have been a rustic ribs or family restaurant. Perhaps the owners will decorate it Mexican once they get established. The service was very good, however, it always perplexes me when Asian servers work in Mexican restaurants!
This is a good choice for dinner in a small town with little variety in food choices and practically all locally owned restaurants. After ribs and family fare this was a nice change.
