Thankfully this restaurant is walking distance from my house. During the week Margarita's are only $1.99 and the food is so good.

Food is good, service is awesome and the prices are so reasonable you wonder how they do it. For an authentic Mexican meal this place should be on your list of favorites. I think the seating is sufficient but is wide open. So, if you don't enjoy hearing laughs from a table next to you be warned. I don't write... More

Eat Here!!! We're from San Diego and like trying different renditions of Mexican food as we travel across the U.S. (Quality varies greatly! 😳) The food here was terrific! It was fresh, it was tasty, it was authentic Mex which can never be taken for granted. Service was great too!!

My wife and I were waiting for an Estate sale to open so we decided to try this place as I had heard they had good breakfast burritos. We were going to get a burrito to go, but when we looked at the menu board, we decided to go inside and eat. They have a lot of very reasonably priced... More

It doesn't matter what meal your served here you'll never be disappointed I don't think. The service is usually very good and the food is right on the money. They offer Daily Specials and if you go away hungry it's you own fault. Complimentary chips and great salsa. Reasonable prices. My wait person reloaded my water with ice and lemon... More

My family and I swung by for breakfast while in Amarillo and where pleasantly surprised with the food. We had some steak and eggs, machacado, and migas, all very good. Tastes just like our south Texas favorites!

Very fast, very friendly, very consistent and very affordable. Owner very personable and always with a smile!! Seems like alot of the servers have been there since we've been going. Always dependable! Also, breakfast... More
