My wife and I just had dinner there tonight. It was very good and authentic mexican food. The only drawback was that it is Sunday and apparently this is a dry county and we could not get margaritas. The service was fantastic and very attentive.

Great food & good prices. I split a chicken & shrimp quesadilla with my other 2 friends and we were full. The queso is great. Only reason I do not give 5 stars is service wasn't great & we felt as if we were being rushed out

My Dad recommended this restaurant while visiting Hiawasse. The food here is great! I wanted a little variety, so I ordered the "Hungry Man Special". The chips and home made sauce we had to snack on while waiting for our order was great. I couldn't believe the size of the plate they brought out (see photos)- it was a turkey... More

We visited on a busy Friday night. Chips and cheese dip were great! Out of the 3 meals ordered, the chicken and shrimp "special" was the best. We also thought the service and prices were very good.

This seemed like a very unusual name for a Mexican restaurant, but I'm glad we gave it a try. Our food was very good although we missed having a full bar. They make their margaritas with wine although we didn't try one.

Casual atmosphere, good service, and very tasty food. Salsa was great. My beef enchiladas with green (verdes) sauce were excellent, and the beef was tender shredded, not ground. Recommended!

We were sitted right away, salsa and chips were at the table immediately. Our server gave to take our order, she was prompt, friendly and very good at her job. The food came out really fast. Everything we ordered was delicious. The prices are not that expensive. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for Mexican in the area.... More

This is our go to place for Mexican food in Hiawassee. The food is always good and brought to the table hot and fast. The chips and salsa are brought to the table almost before you get the menu open. The wait staff are very friendly and always have a smile and kind word. The building is older and lacks... More

Service was great. Everyone was polite and quickly served the diners and drinks. Chips were good and salas was fresh. Fajitas has a lot of meat and good vegetables.

Thank yakermary
