Every time we are in McHenry, we eat here. I tried the stuffed crab dish this time and except for the filling which was too doughy for my tastes, overall it was excellent. Look of the margarita specials.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in mchenry,it never disappoints. The skirt steak dinner is delish. The snapper is wonderful,and the Margaritas are the best in town. It's just a little hole in the wall place with really good food and good service.

We are frequent patrons and always get the same order. Nachos with peppers and their great margaritas. The salsa is always fantastic, the service always welcoming.

Not only is the food excellent, but the portions are huge!!! I've only ordered breakfast but Yum! The biscuits and gravy are great, but the pancakes are the big winner!

Visit for Sunday breakfast a lot. Service is ok, takes forever to get your food, always fresh, good and accurate. If the one waitresses family is at the corner table, forget about service at all unfortunately.

Great Mexican food. Margaritas are good! Monday dollar taco night is a GREAT value. It's fun to watch the train come in right next to the window! Guacamole and cheese sauce should not be missed!

Thank JERI S
