Food was good and the service was fast. They had all your typical Mexican restaurant dishes. Will return again when in town.

If I could give a - 5 would be more appropriate. The place smelled mildewed. The fountain soda tasted old and chlorinated. Salsa oh my gosh, was horrid. The chips stale. Then when I got my steak fajita quesdilla- I couldn't chew the obviously precooked reheated meat. I didn't continue to eat and went elsewhere for lunch. I would not... More

We ate here on 7/12; I had the lunch size steak fajitas and my companion had the grilled chicken salad. My meal was wonderful; I was barely able to finish it all. My companion ended up taking part of the salad home because there was so much food. Loved the complementary chips and salsa too; the salsa has a bit... More

The chipotle sauce is awesome. I had the pollo popeye and it was fabulous. Everyone was very friendly.

We ate there for lunch and the place was dark and looked dirty to me. The food was not that good so now head out to the other Mexican place in town and probably would not go back there. After the high water in early 2016 the place was flooded out and closed so not sure if they will reopen... More

The margaritas are pretty good, but the food is was bland and the service isn't very good. It's closed now.... I would recommend a different Mexican place in Hermann. The restaurant is dark, not very cheery.

we love the margaritas and the tacos. the tostadas are great, as well as the beans and rice. we always get great service. The beef and bean nacho's are wonderful. very filling. My husband always gets the fajita's, and he loves them. so overall a good place to eat that's not pricey.

The food is great here and the staff is always the best! Every year, my friends and I reserve the back room for dinner and we always have the place to ourselves. This is my favorite place to eat in Hermann!

While the food was just average, the waitress was terrible. It took a long time for her to wait on us (and there were about 4 other people in the place), a long time to bring the food, got the order wrong and we finally had to go find her to get the check. While we were waiting to pay,... More

HUGE MENU, with some interesting options like crab rangoon...but I had the chicken nachos and they were delicious. We had a large party and they were accommodating and friendly. The service was a little slow, but we were a big group.

Thank Carly E
