Had the nachos for lunch and they are HUGE! We had great service in an authentic Mexican place. I would go back when I am hungry for this food type.

The food, music and service is very good. I like the quantity and quality for the price. It is probably one of the FINEST Denham Springs has to offer. There isn't a lot of dining in Denham Springs because it's a small city. They do offer alcoholic drinks but it's a family restaurant.

My family and I frequent this restaurant often. No matter what time of day, no matter how busy, the service is excellent and the food matches that. Friendly staff, awesome food.

Service was the main issue here. It started out good but soon we had to wait for everything. 20 minutes to get our check. Then the bill was wrong. Our waiter was nice but she had way too many tables.

Great patio and atmosphere. Servers are very polite. Margaritas are strong! The tortilla soup may have been the best I ever had!
