We stopped for dinner. We were immediately seated and brought chips and salsa. The salsa was the perfect thickness and taste (not too hot). The Dos Equis was cold and served in a frozen glass. Dinner was delivered quickly and was very tasty. I really enjoyed the shrimp fajita nachos and my husband enjoyed his grilled fish dinner as well.... More

This has been my favorite Mexican restaurant in Edwardsville since I moved here 6 years ago! It's so AUTHENTIC, there's a VARIETY, and it's very family friendly. The servers are very friendly and respectful as well!

Great food, prices, service and easy parking. A little on the busy side sometimes but we've never had to wait more than 5 minutes. The service is very fast and tasty food too. A little noisy at times. My hubby loves the fajitas.

This place was recommended to me by someone when I was traveling to Edwardsville on business. The place didn't disappoint. The food was good, the flavor was amazing and the service was on point. One of the hidden gems in Edwardsville, but make sure you have an appetite. The portions are quite large. Would definitely recommend this place to someone... More
