The lunch fajitas were still enough for 2 people to share. This is a good inexpensive option in Jeff City.

Great food at a very good price! The restaurant's decor is beautiful and much of it looks hand painted right down to the chairs. A must to visit if you are in Jefferson City.

Stopped on way home from Lake of the Ozarks. Outside not much to look at but food was plentiful and tasty. Lunch specials 7 days a week. Fajitas had more steak ten veggies! Huge drinks which is nice not having to keep asking for refills.

Supporting our favorite Mexican Restaurant during the Coronavirus BS. Food was great as always, we had the chicken fajitas and it was delicious. Serving size I will NOT disappoint! Highly recommend.

Food was ok at best. The chorizo fundido was finished before the rest of my food, can tell because the cheese has seized up. I had it delivered due to staying at hotel and it was sent is aluminum bowl so I couldn’t heat it...in the microwave to loosen it back up (melt). Not really impressed. It isn’t TexMex for sure.More

I ordered the carnitas dinner with the guac dip, chips and salsa, and a cherry coke. The rice and beans weren’t too bad but the cheese on the beans made the beans very salty. The carnitas weren’t evenly cooked. They did give large portions but...one piece wad crunchy and tough while the other was tender. The pico was too sweet from the lime. The cherry coke is weak but not watered down. I’n not impressed but it is average for around here.More

The plate of food was enormous, and you can’t complain about the price ($10 to $15) for the amount of food you’re given, but it just doesn’t taste good. It’s bland and soggy. Service was only mediocre. I will not be returning.

Been to almost every tex-mex place in central missouri and this place is in the top 3 in my opinion. It was very good !! Wish it was closer !! If they only had Coke products 😁. Fantastic !!
