If you wanted Mexican food, you can find them all over the Lake of the Ozarks. But we weeded out all the ones in town Vista Grande is the best. The staff is cheerful, food is fantastic and worth the visit. Don't waste your time on just ANY Mexican food, just go to Vista and you will be glad you... More

I had the chicken chimi, and I added the rest of my white cheese dip. It was the best I've had in a while. The chicken was very tender and the outside was very crispy. All was hot when served and our service was excellent. He was very attentive, refilling drinks and checking to see if there was anything else.... More

Close to the hotel and has decent reviews. However, we found the food to be mediocre. Watered down version of Mexican food. The staff was nice and the facility was clean. We will not be dining here again.

My title to this review says it all!! The only thing I get here and the ONLY place I have seen them on a menu. They are so great everytime. Everyone else that goes with me gets other things and they don't really love coming here because they don't like what they get. I can't vouch for anything but the... More

Although we have been coming here for years, it is still very good and a definite must visit when at the Lake of the Ozarks. Excellent menu, great service and reasonable prices make this a great restaurant

Great place for the family. A little expensive in my opinion. However, the food is amazing and the ambiance is perfect for a family friendly upbeat outing. Service was also very good. Kind people! Definitley recommended.

Gross Pros : nice waitress, not crowded, easy to find, price fair Cons: food was ALL nasty. Every bit of it. Chips and salsa were starter and I believe it was spaghetti sauce. As a chef I believe most of the food was out of a can or maybe even a TV dinner box! It tasted "tin like" and was... More

The menu offered a large variety of typical Mexican fare. I ordered the Spinach & Chicken Quesidilla and it was delicious!! Portion was large. Our waiter was excellent. Fun atmosphere

Americanized Mexican food; but, it's good! Service is good and the value for the money is spot on. Not too pricey for a family!
