While recently in Cave City, we had a late lunch at this restaurant. There was no problem getting a seat. (We chose to sit indoors, but there is also outdoor seating.) The restaurant features standard Mexican fare. We had the enchiladas and a quesadilla. Both were tasty! In general, service was friendly and quick, except for bringing the check which... More

Restaurant ok but a little pricey for the amount of food you get. The atmosphere was ok also but we sat outside

Went here on suggestion of locals while vacationing in the surrounding area. We had a great meal and wanted to return but also wanted to try the other restaurants in the area so didn't get to revisit. This was, by far, the best meal we had in the area. Hubby had his usual chicken quesadilla and said it was the... More

Friendly staff, yet inattentive served food well below par. No it is not L.A. or N.Y or any other large city. Lucky, because they most likely would be closed by now. Sorry but cannot say any good things except nicely crisped tacos with salsa given as an appiteaser. Wouldn't ever go back or recommend.

If you are in the mood for good Mexican in the area this is the place. I have food allergies and they helped cater to my diet so that I could enjoy a nice meal with my husband.

We got in later in the day and went zip lining. Afterwards we went here for some drinks and dinner. The place is huge, probably around 200 guests, but were seated and attended right away. Food was good, the pork was tender. Drinks were tasty. Lovely outside patio.

Food was average/good Mexican fare. Some interesting choices. We both had margaritas and they seemed to be all mixer with little or no tequila. That was the most disappointing part. I'd recommend it but be aware of the margarita issue.

Awesome food, good prices and great PORTIONS. Lots of menu choices, salsa was good. I had the Nachos Rodeo and couldn't finish my plate. Huge shrimp, cheese and great flavor on the nachos.

Not a lot of choices for dinner in Cave City, KY. And this seemed to be the only one with a full bar. So when I saw how busy it was I assumed it was drinks that drew the crowds. Once I got my dinner I realized it was the quality of food as well. The offerings are pretty typical... More
