Great lunch deals and friendly staff. We visit here about once a month for food and 32 Oz Dos Equis. For a couple, the bill is always under $20 before tip. Excellent place to eat, you should try it.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the outstanding service. Didn't expect it from the prices on the menu. Our waiter was extra specail to cater to our two tykes. It was a busy night but the wait staff were really moving. The happy hour two for one margaritas were some of the best and most... More

We had a great experience here. We went here with 2 other families, and they seated all 15 of us together. The atmosphere was clean, family friendly and comfortable. The food is not 5 star, but was great for an inexpensive lunch with friends. Servers were very attentive and helpful! They have a very large menu with LOTS of options,... More

I have been here a million times (as well as the Miami OK location). The food is always fantastic. They serve some really good Mexican beers you can't really find at other places. Staff is always friendly.

We love this place! The arroz con pollo and mi favorito are fabulous. Also great for take out except they don't give you chips which is disappointing.

Typical menu, typical fare. Nothing special; nothing bad. There are at least three Mexican restaurants in Joplin I prefer.

Our family stopped for lunch based on positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was awful and they used cheap ingredients. The ground beef had an off taste and my son-in-law got violently ill after eating a burrito containing it. The food was far from being authentic and all dishes appeared to come from a can. We highly discourage eating... More

The food was bland & tasteless. I asked for red sauce on my burrito & enchilada and they drowned it! The meat was so odd tasting that my 8 yr old even commented on it. Out of my family of four, none of us ate much. I have no idea why others raved about it.

Probably the best service I have ever experienced at a Mexican food restaurant. Has a Vallarta southern pacific look and the food has the taste from this region of Mexico. The cost was also very reasonable. Well done!
