“Decent Mexican Food in Middleburg”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here at least a half dozen times and have eaten in their restaurants in The Plains and Warrenton. It's standard to good non-national-chain Mexican food.

Warm chips and homemade salsa are above average. The combo dishes are nothing special, but you get decent sized portions. The enchiladas tend to be heavy and greasy and not in a good way. The cheese in them seems to be of the tasteless processed variety.

I usually get bean burritos, which are decent with a tasty ranchero sauce on top and just a sprinkling of cheese. The guac is home made, chunky and onion-y.

The service (usually just one guy waiting on tables) is attentive and the prices very reasonable.

“Unassuming Mexican with Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

You will not be "wowed" by the interior, the staff or the atmosphere, but for Middleburg, Virginia, there is hardly a more reasonably priced option with decent food. While it is the prototypical Mexican restaurant menu, they do a good job, have the standard Mexican beer array and all for a price at a sit down restaurant that few in the area can match. We really appreciate it when taking our kids out and trying not to spend $100 for a dinner for four in Middleburg.
