We have stopped here three times in the last year. Each time the waiters were excellent and the food was delicious.

Your typical Mexican restaurant but the food was very good. My steak fajitas were tasty and had good meat. I have repeatedly had fajitas with steak that was poor quality at other restaurants. The guacamole was fresh and better than most places. 5 of us all agreed the food was excellent.

Traveling through town & stopped on a whim. The service was excellent, the food was authentic. They went above what was expected to meet my spicy food need. I would highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

It has become our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. My always favorite is their vegetable quesadilla. The peppers, onions, etc., have been grilled just as I like them. Last week my husband had some kind of sauteed shrimp dish, and he loved it. We're originally from the SC coast, so our seafood standards are high. The margaritas are really... More

My boyfriend and I frequent this place! We sit at the bar- enjoy a beer and margarita with the traditional guacamole. Then proceed with whichever entree we are in the mood for. There are so many options which have all been delish! Especially the burritos roqueta! Overall a great relaxed place to dine.

Friendly, quick service. Good basic Mexican food. I enjoyed the Yolandas! The beer was good. Would be a good spot for lunch.

Great fish tacos, chicken soup and tomato shrimp cocktail are a few of our favorites. Service is good and very prompt.

My husband and I wanted Mexican and this restaurant was the closest to our resort. We sat at the bar. I had a Taco Salad with chicken. I couldn't find the lettuce because it was wilted underneath the refried beans, sour cream and chicken. I like to taste the lettuce. Hubbie ordered fajitas with steak, chicken and shrimp. We aren't... More

If you're in the mood for Mexican in Clarkesville then this is a good option. To be honest I can't tell much difference between Mexican food in general. I suppose El Patron in Cornelia might be a little better and it's about a 10-15 minute drive from there but if you don't want to drive the extra miles then this... More
