Been here a few times and I have to say I am most impressed by the value. A bowl of tortilla soup is $4.99 and comes with a mini quesadilla. That's a great deal! The espinaca queso is $2.99 if you get an entree, which, I'm sure, everyone does, and it's a good size serving (enough to share amongst 3... More

We have visited this location a few times and always say we will give them one more try, however I feel we have given them several chances. The food is your typical texmex, not bad but nothing special. The service is terrible. Be prepared to be ignored by the servers.

It took me 35 min to get a single burrito. Three tables came in after I did and two of the three were served before ne even though my order had been taken first. I don't get it.

It was late and they were getting ready to close but we walk in and ask if we were to late. They were very friendly and said come in. They provided wonderful service even coming near closing time. Margaritas were not what up to what we expected but the beer was cold. They offered to take the Margaritas off which... More

The salsa and chips are amazing here and very fresh the margaritas here are also really good. Service is a bit slow so ask for the bill right away.

So sad because this was one of our family favorites. Lunch on a Wednesday around 1:45. Wasn't too busy. Dined with my young daughters. Server sat us and said she'd bring crayons back for the kids. Never did. Sat and sat. She walks by, sees espinaca coupon, grabs it and says, I'll get this started for you. I say loudly,... More

Delicious once again. Nice variety on their menu. Almost every time we are in Lee's summit we stop and eat there. The monster cookie for dessert is very yummy if your tummy has room for more.

Thank Kim C
