I have to say San Diego was the best before it moved out of the Ingles shopping center but Gabino's has taken number one as far as I'm concerned, the new one in Jackson is good too. The both have great service.

My spouse and I ordered grilled shrimp fajita for two, which was excellent. Our waiter kindly brought the included guacamole out early for dipping with our chips appetizer. Portions are generous and when we dine here again (probably in JAN 2017) we will ask to split a shrimp fajita for one. I noticed a new to us Mexican beer (Victoria)... More

Right next door to Red Roof Inn. Excellent food and service. The beef burrito, taco, beans and rice were all delicious. The Margaritas were also very good and relaxing after driving on I-75 through Atlanta in a rain storm.

We have visited a lot of Mexican style restaurants, and have found that the food always starts to taste the same. Gabino's had GREAT food! Very unique menu and great tasting food.

Traffic got heavy just south of Atlanta so we decided to stop for an early supper. What a find. The thick, chunky salsa was a great start. I had the Montery Chicken and it was enough for two.

Being hard core Mexican food lovers from Texas we were a little dubious about a tiny local restaurant tacked onto a motel off the highway. Based on TripAdvisor reviews we tried it and so glad we did! The chicken and portabello quesadilla with cheese was superb and when it was paired with chunky guacamole it was unbeatable. The chips were... More

We had to stay in Locust Grove due to car trouble traveling back to St. Louis. We knew nothing about the town but our hotel clerk told us this was good. I'm SO glad we listened! I've given up on Mexican food, for the most part. Everywhere we go, it seems like we can only find Americanized CRAP that is... More

This is the closest restaurant to nearby hotels and well worth having dinner or lunch there. The food is fresh, generous, and tastes great, with terrific service.

This is in a location that frequently changes businesses. When we first started coming here it was the Mustard Seed. Now it's Mexican. I liked it a little better than the Mexican restaurant on the main road. Bigger and better bar. I had Monterrey chicken, which was a huge serving of chicken over grilled onions and peppers. It came sizzling... More
