“Best Mexican restaurant in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This place is by far the best Mexican restaurant in town. The portions are huge and the price is very cheap. I love the chicken chimichanga's and the pan fried taco's. My husband usually orders the burritos. No matter what your favorite is you will find it here.

“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Call in and place your to go order if you don't want to wait. 785-235-2051 (posting because this is a very hard phone number to find in the telephone book) This restaurant has been here long enough to gather quite a crowd sometimes. The Steak Asada with fresh guacamole and beans is always a good choice. The salsa is outstanding but they don't give enough of it when you place a to-go order. The enchiladas are good also. They have white sauce and just about anything "mexican" along with other choices. Breakfast also.

“Same taste 13 years later”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

One of our favorite places for authentic Mexican food. This is no run of the mill food chain, it is independently owned and operated. Step out of the confort zone and try the beef tongue tacos, or some menudo. Taste just like Mom's.
