We have eaten at all of these food is good, value is good and service is very good. All of these places are very good food at reasonable prices clean and family friendly and great assets for the small city of Chelsea.

The best place for mexican food. Cheese dip is so good. Steak fajitas are the best! Steak nachos are very good. Waiters are always nice and your glass never gets empty.

Three of us went for dinner last night. I decided to try their shrimp chille rellenos. It was the first time I've seen them offered with shrimp. It turned out to be a good choice. It was the best I've had in years thanks to the flavorful and zesty pepper. The rice was nice and fluffy and quite tasty, this... More

Chile relleno was marginally adequate. The sauce was a big disappointment. I find it hard to believe anybody could rate this as five star. It just does not compare favorably to any other Mexican restaurants I have eaten at.

We eat here as a family frequently and it's always good. Margaritas are tasty and happy hour makes it even better. The fajitas are fantastic!

Located in a growing area of suburban Hwy 280, just 10 minutes east of Hwy 119, this restaurant offers good food at fair prices. I have enjoyed this restaurant in other locations throughout this area for years. Good chips and salsa, fajitas, and tacos. Good service.

I read everyone's reviews before meeting my daughter there for an early dinner. I knew not to expect much or order any gummy cheese dip. I just needed it to be OK. It was not. The frozen margarita was supposed to be my reward for a long week. It was twangy and not much tequila. It was an uncharacteristicly cool... More

Definitely not the best mexican food around. We had a cheese dip that is pretty much average for Alabama mexican food. Gooey, flavor-lacking soupy cheese. I had the steak Tacos Carbon. It was odd that they were served in flour tortillas and all the filling was inside of the three tortillas as if it were one taco with three tortillas.... More

Our family has visited many times and it has always been very consistent . Dining in? Fast and friendly service. Take out? Watch out on what they charge you, more than once we have been charged (more) different prices at the back bar cash register. Example: cheese dip and chips: on the menu it says salsa included but when I... More
