4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was suprised that I had to pay $2 extra for Chips & Salsa with two $10 combo meals.
Refried beans and rice was good.

I was turned off by the odd odor coming through the door, but because I was hungry, I stayed. The food was good;had the taco plate and the husband had a burrito.

“Bext mexican food in Grants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Excellent food and service. They have a childrens menu from which adults can also order. Around $10 entrees. Sometimes Native Americans walk through with items for sale, but they are not intrusive. Highly recommended.
