Awesome stop in Ashland not far from I-95. Great chips and the white sauce is the best thing since sliced bread. I recommend the chicken taco salad!

Steak fajitas was FABULOUS! SPICY! Hot peppers were so steamy that we were coughing....but we LOVED IT!

For a family of 5, our bill was $63. Food was fresh and hot. Our children did not care for the churros-had a weird filling inside. Food came fairly quickly; however, the server did not return frequently for drink refills or to ask how the food was.

Wouldn't return. Not the best food and just doesn't seem to have that authentic feel. Many other options just 10 minutes away that are much better

The beans were especially good, some of the best we've had. The vegetables and guacamole were fresh, the service prompt and the price was very reasonable. If... More

We have been here several times. Every time the food seems to get better. We went for my birthday in March, great food, great service and margaritas that are out of this world! I have never had a better margaritas even at places that are known for their margaritas.

I've had plenty of Mexican food and this ranked near the bottom. Had burritos and tacos with beans and rice. Nothing specifically wrong with it just not that good. Typical decor that could use some TLC. Staff was attentive and polite. On a positive note the goods was served fast and hot.

Thank Brian G
