Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My husband and friend decided to eat here for dinner. The staff was excellent. There was a mariachi band playing on that evening. The experience was very enjoyable.

Almost 200 reviews and this is one of the lowest I've ever given. Worst wine margarita any of us ever had! Could not drink them! Three of us did not like our food. The other had Chicken Fajitas. They are hard to mess up, as you know. Most of the food had a sour sauce on it. Awful. In fairness... More

This restaurant was suggested to me by a local in Kissimmee. It is next to a grocery store, and not easy to find. The outside does not look like a place I would have stopped at, and I was the only non-latino in the place. Some might call it a whole-in-the-wall restaurant. But once inside, what a change. This is... More

I had been to the El Tenampa in Orlando and liked the food very much but found the location lacking in AC and cleanliness. I took a friend to the Kissimmee location and told her how great it was. She thought the food was good but got into an argument with the waitress who decided to take things into her... More

This is a hole in the wall Mexican Restaurant. I passed it once. It's on the North side of the road and they have a Mexican Grocery Store in the same building, next door. Once you find it, as soon as you walk in, you know you have hit a jackpot. The food will have you rubbing your belly, no... More

This place is nothing fancy! Small place with "Authentic Food and Music". Food was delicious and so were the drinks!! It did take a bit of time getting the food, but I would rather wait for good food then receive disgusting food and lousy service. I would definitely go back! Our waiter was amazing and very attentive!! It was a... More
