Typical Mexican restaurant. Good beer, all Mexican beer of course. Good fajitas, chips and salsas. Margaritas looked good and are really big.

I really felt like I wasn't welcomed like others that came in, my waitress was un-attentive and the manager didn't ask how was the food. Definitely felt out of place, will not be back.

Eaten there a lot of times and always had good food. The service is good as well. It's a popular eatery for both lunch and diner. I would recommend my favorite, the delicious Texas Mexicana Fajitas. I can't hardly finish it. Need to get extra fajitas, though! The prices are decent and the value is good...Sometimes you get a wait... More

When I entered, I suddenly had high hopes as all the customers appeared to be Hispanic, but reality soon crushed the hopes. The menu is very good extensive, but my taco and burrito were like every other mediocre Mexican restaurant thet I've ever eaten in. Ground beef, white cheese, red sauce, blaah! Think of Chinese takeout and you get the... More

Over the years, we have eaten here at least two dozen times, but not for the last few years. It used to be very good. We returned recently and were totally disappointed. The taco salad was in a shell that was stale. The chile rellenos were overcooked and mushy. The burritos were dry inside. Nothing was delicious or nicely done.... More

First let me say that the waitress was nice and margaritas and chips were ok. It was all downhill from there. Our son described the ground beef perfectly as school cafeteria taco meat. Everything was greasy and mediocre. When our 5 year old won't eat the cheese quesadilla you know something's amiss. Though our 13 year old daughter who normally... More

My girlfriend and I dined here twice on our recent camping trip to Kerr Lake. The first time was so good we had to go back again. I am a professionally trained chef and having worked with many Mexicans in the industry, I've grown very fond of their cuisine. Not Mexican food as most Americans know it, but REAL Mexican... More

This is a decent place while on the road for a quick meal. Prices are good, food is typical american mexican food. It is one of the places we stop at while on the route from atlanta to DC

A couple friends and I dined here on a Friday evening. As you walk into the restaurant, there is a board with the daily drink and entrée specials. One of the drink specials was a Margarita for $2.99, so I had to have one! LOL! I was given choices of frozen, on the rocks, and with/without salt on the rim... More

Had the opportunity to dine at Mazatlan Mexican Resutrant, and couldn't have been more pleased. Ordered both the enchilada and taco. They were servered promptly, steaming hot and simply delicious. The large margarita was icing on the cake. Well done Mazatlan.
