Chicken Chimichanga hit the spot; great flavor. Fajita's are very good! Queso dip is perfect with the chips. Salsa needs cilantro; chunks of tomatoes and onion would be good too. All the meals fill you up and are very good Mexican cuisine! Definitely, will be back to try other items on the menu......lots of choices.

The best thing on the menu is the cheese dip! It's so great, and can be drizzled on anything! Otherwise the food is decent, and the staff are wonderful! They're so nice, and often joke around with you, giving it charm. It's the best Mexican food in southern Maryland, but not as great as getting something in nearby Washington, D.C.

Lots of great food at a great price and a cold beer to match...what else could you want right in your neighborhood ?!?! This is a local favorite for good reason. The food is consistently good with excellent portions at a very good price. The staff is friendly and service is good. We go there often as do many of... More

Been here dozens of times and not once was I disappointed in the food or service. Prices are very reasonable and portions are excellent..you won't leave still hungry. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Salsa is excellent as well... Best Mexico in So Md.

We were really excited to try this place based on reviews. The couple we walked in with raved about it too. The service was spot on, but everything else was mediocre at best. The salsa had the consistency of tomato soup, no chunks at all. The pork dish featured very square little fatty chunks in a murky sauce without much... More

I have been here many times, and have tried different meals. I have not had any bad meal here. The service is excellent. All the servers are friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time.

The service and the food are fantastic. The food is always fresh and hot. The servers seem to always have a perpetual smile on their faces, no wonder, the place is wonderful. Enjoy the fishbowl margarita. The Chimichangas are the best in the area.

Great place for good Mexican food. The "big" margarita is an understatement. It is huge and very good! The chips are crispy and the salsa has the right amount of kick without burning your taste buds.
