This is a cooperative that has been very successful for many years. They have great food and there is no tipping since the tips are included in the menu price. Lunch and breakfast are the easiest times to go since typically there is no waiting. Dinner can be difficult since you may have to wait for more than an hour... More

Always a busy restaurant but well worth the wait. The ability to get Drinks and appetizers in the bar area while we waited to be seated made the wait fly by. It is always nice to support a company the cares for its employees and pays them a fair rate without having to over charge their patrons.

I was in town one night for work and went here for dinner alone. Everyone was friendly and the food (quesadilla with ground beef) was delicious. They also had live music. Great vibe and can see how it would be a fun date night in Athen or with friends.

Our waitress recommended the tostada stack. You pick your filing, covered in your choice of seasonal salsa and then it is baked. Hot spicy and delicious 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

If you're looking for authentic mexican food, this isn't the place to go BUT their food is absolutely incredible. Don't pass it up. Great, healthy ingredients with kind service.

This place is right off Court Street, but it seems like a hidden gem. We went there for early dinner and drinks and we weren't disappointed. The margarita selection was amazing with a wide variety of custom recipes. The food was really good and I expect it would be since everything is made in house. I strongly recommend the appetizers/dips.... More

Great food and amazing atmosphere. Service is outstanding. Plan your trip accordingly and try to get in early. It's a high demand place. Often we can't even get in if there's a parent event at OU, so plan.
