I have been eating Mexican food for 66 years. And this place was undoubtedly the worst! The salsa was yucky! The cheese enchilada cold and doughy, the rice horrible, the defied bans tasted funny. But the soft beef steak taco was good, I have to admit.

Great food here and really nice people. The tortillas are home made and they use fresh ingredients. The place is on the main strip in town and has a nice large dining room.

We arrived at 7:45 pm and were seated right away. They stay open until 9 during the week, one of a few that stayed open past 8. Ordered enchiladas (3 different kind) with rice and beans. Reasonably priced and large enough to split with my spouse considering the free chips and salsa. The sodas are huge.

This jem of a Mexican restaurant in downtown Exeter serves reasonably priced authentic Mexican food with warm and friendly service. The chips are made just before they're served, the salsa is very flavorful and the pork carnitas are some of the best that I've ever had.

We stopped at this place and we were pleasantly surprised. I tried the chicken Vera Cruz is was delicious. The rice was a little bland but everything else was great! The Chilie verde was pretty good as well. The service was excellent.
