I wish I could take this restaurant back home to Missouri with me. It was awesome. The food was so so good I had trouble not eating it all even after I was full. The staff was very friend also. It was such a great find in Alabama which I don't think is known for their Mexican food.

We go at least 3 or 4 times a month. It's always great food. If it were up to me I would go once a week!

We wanted Mexican food. I checked trip advisor and found good reviews for this place. The rice was dry. The chicken in all of our meals was unflavorful. It tasted like rotisserie chicken with no seasoning or peppers or onions or anything like what you expect Mexican food it taste like. The service was good however. When we left I... More
