We just moved to this area and have already been twice! Very good fajitas and generous portions. Our son got the burrito “La Fuente” and loved it. Salsa is pretty mild but good too.

My absolute favorite Mexican restaurant. I always have friendly service and I love the thin chips they serve with salsa.

Unfortunately the food was pretty awful. The ground beef in the taco and enchiladas were just that....ground beef — no seasoning that was even detectable. The Chile rellano was soggy, over battered and filled with a processed tasting cheese that was beyond meaty...more like watery....More

Great fast service and they have fantastic fried tacos! The draft beer special is a good deal too. Really good chips and salsa.

Good quality food served fast at reasonable prices. Service is typically faster than fast food places, but food taste/quality doesn't suffer.. Margarita flavor is some of the best around with specials frequently throughout the week.

We always enjoy the mexican food and the chips at this local Smithville Restaurant. All of the choices are very good but we like the fajatas the best. They serve a lot of food at a reasonable price and the margaritas are tasty, too!
