Went out to dinner with the family and explained my food allergies to the server. She took notes on them and said she understood. One of my allergies is to gluten. We ordered the avacado salad. The description did not say anything about crutons. Well the salad came out with an abundant amount of crutons. I said something to the... More

Chose this over KFC....Lol! I had a burrito and my husband had the enchiladas with green sauce. While the sauce on my burrito was a little too much tomato taste, it was still very good. My husband said his was excellent and ate every bit!! The service was really good! This is a must stop if you like Mexican!!

After driving for 9 hours we really needed a relaxing dinner. The daily special margarita was terrific - generous tequila and a good flavor. The waitress was very friendly, even though we arrived close to closing time. Our dinners were tasty and arrived quickly. The flan dessert was a good finish to the meal.

I've eaten here a few times during my travels to Elko. Usually no wait to get seated and service has mostly been efficient and friendly. Their margaritas are really good. I've tried their burritos and carne asada tacos which both were delicious. Easy access right off the I80 freeway. Enjoy.

Passing through the area and came to this restaurant because the reviews were pretty good. Ok, here goes... Very disappointed with my two tacos. The meat was burned crispy and must've been old. No taste to it at all and hard to eat. My husband ordered tamales and they were presented without being wrapped in corn leaves. They had a... More

We took a huge party (30 people from 3 families) into the restaurant for a post-graduation party. The restaurant was packed, so even though we had a reservation, we had to wait quite a while to be seated. We were given our own room and our own waiter. Since there were so many of us, we were offered the choice... More

My favorite is the Jalisco Fajitas, but, I must say everything I've had has been great. The portions are large, there are endless warm Chips & Salsa served with every meal. The Sunday Brunch has a great selection and includes items that are not on the regular menu.
