Overall excellent Mexican spot. Excellent food and service. There was no wait when we got there, the food portions were great and everything was delicious. Came here while staying at a nearby Falling Rivers Yurt and it was too cold to grill outside.

I ate here last year and was not crazy about the food. I tried a efferent dish this year and enjoyed it lots more. Pollo fundido. It is not as good as my home town one, but okay. There was plenty of food, but no...More

Starting off with the Pina Colada we got, it was delicious! I ended up even getting another one it was so good! The food was even better! We ordered the Mojarra Frita which was huge! The staff was extremely friendly and made our experience here...More

We visited Bryson City for a wedding trip and needed a quick place for dinner. We have 7 in our party and where seated right away. The food was good, service was good. It was priced very reasonable. We would eat there again.

This is an average Mexican place and food was ok and service was pretty decent. I ordered the grilled chicken breast with grilled zucchini and salad. The portion was pretty good and the taste was ok.

As locals, this is our go to spot for Mex. However, our last visit was disappointing. The food itself was good. The guac dip left a lot to be desired. Watery, no chunks with no taste. Hope they return to the original soon.

I don't think they have a website, but went to Bryson City and to this restaurant and it was soooo good, I had to review it. I was surprised to see there was no listing.
