Came with friends after a day of tailgating. We were staying at a friends house in Anderson and her nephew recommended this place. My wife and I are very particular about our Mexican restaurants as they can be hit or miss. This one was a...More

This is my neighborhood cantina and it is the best in town. Food is consistently good, I have my weekly cheeseburger and fries here. They treat me like family and reasonably priced too. I will never tire of this place. I highly recommend this restaurant.
