Went in for lunch as a refuge from bad service at another establishment. Just wanted good food and friendly folks. We got both! We were greeted and seated quickly. Nice waiter brought chips and salsa. Ordered the lunch taco plate and lemonade. Had a few chips and the food was served. Very tasty with some extra hot sauce. Got some... More

The service was great and the queso was really good. Our lunch was just okay, nothing special or that I'd rave about. Pretty much a one time visit place.

Had dinner there one night in September. Chicken Mole was really tasty and sizes are moderate, not so huge that you cannot finish, Ordered a side of Pico de Gallo that was very fresh and tasty, a great substitute for a side salad. Not a fancy place, but if you are in the mood for Mexican food, this place deserves... More

This quaint little restaurant will be a big surprise. The food is always delious and hot, it always comes out quick. The prices are more than reasonable for the amount of food you get. The chips and salsa are fantasic. Salsa does have a little bite to it which makes it that much better. I highly suggest this restaurant.

We had dinner here while in town for a conference. It was conveniently located, but I wish we had gone a little out of our way and had a better experience. The food was bland, the drinks ( we each had a Wednesday night "half price" Margarita) weak, service was friendly. The wait was about 30 minutes, for no apparent... More

We have been going here for years as our go to Mexican restaurant. LOVE the chips and salsa, can never get enough. I always get the chicken taco salad, it is on the ala carte menu (it did not have chicken listed, but they still have it). Lots of white meat chicken (FYI, it is not what most people consider...

Service is quick and friendly. Food and drinks were prepared as ordered and priced fairly. Would recommend for lunch or dinner when in St. Charles.

Really cheap prices. Really fast service. Very friendly staff. Food was very tasty and fresh. This is going to be the go to place for a quick lunch and margaritas at night. Give it a try, you will be surprised.

It was a toss up between Buffalo Wild Wings and this place. Wings would have been better. Service was ok but food was very blah. I haven eaten a lot of Mexican but this was just not that good. Enchiladas with corn tortilla and green sauce was not a combination. I would suggest going elsewhere.
