Food is good - get the specials. Don't expect speed when you come. Be aware they don't take credit cards. ATM is at the top of the stairs, though.

The best mexican in Eureka Springs hands down. Great food and atmosphere, it is a must stop every time we are in Eureka Springs.

I ate there for the first time this weekend. The food was fine. The waitress was too loud and talked too much. I was unable to enjoy my meal. I doubt I go back.

This local gem is a must eat. It's quirky and their dishes are purely delicious. The server was a very kind local. Definitely go is you are in town, you won't be disappointed.

We were first told about this place from a local on our first anniversary. It made such an impression that we returned on our 13 anniversary. The salsa and salad dressing is exactly the same as we remembered! This place truly serves the best salsa we have ever had in our life. We even ordered extra fresh salsa to take... More

My husband and I stumbled on this gem during our very first visit to Eureka Springs many years ago and have gone back each and every time we've returned. It's down one of the alleys (I never can remember which one, so it's also a bit of a treasure hunt!). They serve the best vegetarian based "ark-mex" food I have... More

I just happened to stumble upon this place because I was craving Mexican food and saw good reviews! I honestly was not expecting much, but wow! was I surprised! It's not much on the inside, and kind of hidden, like much other shops and restaurants in Eureka Springs, but glad I found it and went! Yes, it is Mexican food,... More

This is one of my favorite places in Eureka. You really have to know where it is though, its a little off the beaten path. A great blend of tex-mex food. The salad dressing is wonderful and I've never had a bad meal here! Service can be slow as its usually only two people working there, one cooking and one... More

Bulk chips with the salsa, featured food unimpressive. Loud and brash waitress, plastic cups for beverages (none of which are adult), musty environs, cash only. Long wait with only three occupied tables because, "we got slammed with all these tables at the same time." I don't mind climbing stairs for good food and service. I won't be climbing this set...

A local had told us of this spot and now every time we go go to Eureka we have to eat there. Food is super fresh and delicious. Really reasonable in regards to prices, but bring cash.
