This was a pleasant surprise! A really good Mexican restaurant in the middle of 'no where'. Close to the Ark Encounter and worth a stop. Frozen margaritas are fantastic.

Very good and very large portions. Traditional Mexican cuisine. Dinner for two with a generous tip was $50.

Food was excellent and reasonably priced... and lots of it. Great salsa, green dip and warm chips. Close to our hotel and the Ark Encounter. Definitely recommend.

We were staying next door at the motel, and saw this place. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but on the inside, it has very colorful decorations. Service was good, and the food was some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. Closest restaurant to the Ark Encounter, and it is worth stopping here!!!

I loved my meal (steak) my husband didn't enjoy his at all (salad). Our drinks didn't taste good. The staff was friendly but didn't understand English well.

Plenty of variety; delicious, freshly made food; a lot of bang for the buck. Restaurant has smoking section and non-smoking.

We were referred by our hotel owner. Four of us had a wonderful dining experience from the chips and salsa to meals. I ordered a shrimp dish, Camarones Cancun, that was awesome!

Their food and drinks are pretty average/decent, but they have some specials that are good draws, especially for tacos and margaritas! I didn't like all the tvs, but that's just my thing. There isn't much else in the area.
