Surprising find in cajun country. Salsa was very fresh with mild spice, chips crispy and not greasy. Refried beans also fresh with a homemade taste. Excellent tamales with chili. Cheddar cheese was an interesting twist on the chimichanga, I recommend the fajita beef. Oh, did...More

Slow slow service and disappointing Mexican food. This must be the blandest Mexican food I have ever eaten. Even the salsa you dip your chips in was bland. Everything we ordered with beef was full of grease. It was very crowded when we arrived and...More

Good food but lots of it. We got Tacos Al Carbon & carnitas. They were delicious but the portions were huge. The "yellow cheese" queso was lacking flavor so we poured our salsa into it which improved it significantly.

Very good Mexican Restaurant. Great Salsa and chips and quick, courteous service. Like the carnitas made with a red sauce rather than the regular grilled ones. Terrific Guacomale, tamales, and delicious marinated fajitas. Pull off the interstate when you hit Nachitoches for a delicious lunch...More
