Great food, clean, awesome service, wonderful back room for large parties. I recommend the tacos with shrimp wrapped bacon dinner (my favorite). Reasonable priced. They also serve American food to please all their guests and did I mention large portions!

Nice lunch spot in downtown Faribault. Lunch menu has many choices, all served with chips and very tasty homemade salsa. Chimichanga has tender slow cooked chicken with great flavor.

Just in town to pick up our son at a hockey camp and we had some time to kill. Very good Mexican food and fantastic margaritas. When they bring you the complementary taco chips ask for melted white cheddar. Yum! Prices were fantastic for what you get the portions are huge. Highly recommended!
