We had reservations for our group of 10 and were promptly seated even though the place was packed. Noisy and lively atmosphere. Great Margaritas and chili rellenos. Excellent service.

This is a long standing dependable Lexington Mexican Restaurant with good service, a clean relaxing atmosphere, and simply great food. Good price points as well.

This used to be one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Lexington, but the recent ratings are right and it has went down hill. Too dark and health dept. inspection rating low. Food was OK bu y atmosphere leaves much to desire.

Here from out of town and had no idea what was around our hotel. Extremely fast service and food came super fast! Chips were warm and salsa good. Strawberry daiquiri was strong and delicious. Daughter got spinach quesadilla and cheese dip which was good too! Server was great.
