“Best Mexican food in Adams County with great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2009

This is my family's favorite Mexican restuarant in the area. Prices are reasonable and the food has always been really good. You are greeted at the door very pleasantly and there is homemade chips and salsa on your table before you can even open the menu. There are daily specials, combo platters and regular menu items to meet every palate and pocketbook.

“It's more Mexican than Taco Bell”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

But, yeah... like most other places in this part of the country, not really Mexican. It was alright-ish. The salsa was cooked awfully hard and the chips were kinda bland. I split an appetizer sampler with a friend. I would recommend skipping it. It was kinda skimpy. Though the sauces and guacamole that came with it were tasty - the food itself, not so much. I got a quesadilla texana, (because I'm about as Mexican as this place is). The shrimp were tasty, but it was overstuffed and aside from the shrimp, kinda bland. The service was decent. They kept the drinks filled and the table reasonably uncrowded without being all over us.

“Best Mexican Food Ever...Period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2009

Service was fast and excellent! My lemonade was filled up three times quickly before it ran out and the waiter gave me no problems about it. The food was amazing and the waiter served it with an oven mitt because the food just came out from cooking and was steaming hot! Also, the portions were large enough to fill me up with food left over plus the selection on the menu was great with many dishes to choose from! You will also find value here as most menu items are priced under $10 and for two people with drinks it cost just over $23.

“Great food, outstanding service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2009

Having grown up in the southwest, I was dubious about going to a Mexican restaurant in Gettysburg. However, my family talked me into it, and we were all very pleased. The food was very good. The service was outstanding. The servers were all extremely good natured, our water glasses were filled as needed, the food was served quickly, but did not seem to be pre-made, and the prices were reasonable. One of our family members is a vegetarian. She was very happy to find a whole section of the menu devoted to vegetarians. We will definitely go back to this restaurant when we are in Gettysburg.
