The Chicken Bandito is must try! So delicious! Great Salsa and Chips. Also check out the JUMBO margarita if you're in the mood. The only down fall, the waiter was not very attentive to our drinks and we really could have used another drink

The place was almost packed at lunch on a Saturday but our food came out rather quickly hot and fresh. The have lunch specials everyday on their menu. The salsa was ok nothing special but the beef fajitas were very good and plentiful.

Since they opened the new restaurant we have been in twice. Food great service adequate. But today it appears they forgot about the service all together. A 20 minute wait still no wait staff. Sorry. Nice people but hey can't figure out the business.

Definitely will return. New decor, and beautiful art paintings on walls. It's definately giving the restaurant a good atmosphere.

My family loves going here. They have great food that is affordable on a tight family budget. Get a James Dip to share or eat one for a meal. If you like Mexican food you'll love it here. The new location looks great too. Yum!

The best Shrimp Fajitas I've ever had. There were at least 15 shrimp in my order. The taste is what I get in Mexico when we visit. (The way the ingredients are sauteed) Much better than the way most American restaurants season this dish. The...More

For Rolla very good. Good anywhere else. If you have to eat in Rolla this is one of the best selections. Decent food, decently priced so you do not go away wishing you ate somewhere else.
