My dinner, a shrimp palusa was excellent. Shrimp was tender and the cheese sauce so much better than just melted shredded cheese. My husband had a tasteless chicken breast (but tender) topped with a crystalized, over-cooked slice of steak and chorizo on top. When we...suggested to the mask covered waitress, she said it is supposed to be cooked all the way thru. He left it on the plate and poured the sauce from the chips over the chicken. I did not see the tables being wiped between guests but perhaps I missed it.More

Marvelous Mexican food! Stopped here on the way south and enjoyed it so much we stopped again on the way back. The camarones a la diabla was one of the best Mexican dishes I’ve had in years. The enchiladas suizas were also excellent and the...margaritas were good and only $2.99. Several cuts above the usual Mexican fare east of the Missouri. Highly recommended!More

Me and my friend are both vegetarian and decided to get mexican because they usually have a vegetarian section of the menu. This one did not, but the waiter/kitchen was more than happy to accommodate us ordering off menu. The food was great! The service...was good. The spicy salsa was really spicy. I loved it and will try to come back when in the area.More

Went there while staying in Mt. Airy passing through for one night. My husband and I both ordered the fajitas. Wow ! delicious and they give you a tone of shrimp. The rice and guacamole were just ok. I make better guacamole. But the fajitas...were great.More

Been eating here for years but will not return. Our waitress today at lunch was clueless. She was still in training. Didn’t know anything about the menu. My husband pointed to the lunch fajitas. When we got the bill we were charged for the dinner...size because she rang it in wrong. Manager would not change it because he said my husband ate the dinner portion so he would have to pay for it. The manager sent his new employee in training to let us know. Didn’t even have the courtesy to come tell us we had to pay for something we didn’t order. She also tried to charge us for an extra salad because my dish came with salad or rice and I said I wanted the salad. I also ordered ground beef but got shredded beef. My husbands salsa bowl stayed empty half the time. With all this the manager still decided that an extra $5 was worth losing a long term customer. Very sad.More

The chips and salsa are pretty good. Warm. That's always a good test to the food coming. If chips and sauce crappy,,,food will be too. Holy crap!!! The food was fabulous!! I thought I was back in Mexico !!!!! Spicy and good,good,good!!!! Had the burrito....For those of you not into spicy,stay with the cheese dip. For you spicy lovers,substitute that cheese dip with hot sauce on the side!!!! The rice was absolutely the most favorable and moist rice!!! This is a 100% come back when in the area again. People were so friendly. That's a plus! Alrighty then,,,,adios my peeps!! Carry on !!! Kudos to cooks, waitresses,and entire staff.More

Being in Mt. Airy doesn't mean you should have to settle. There are no complaints about the chips and salsa but the meals are a little less tasty. The side salad had a generous dollop of sour cream, but no avocado or even diced fresh...tomatoes. Just shredded lettuce & cream. The refried beans were creamy but without any seasoning. The meat enchilada was spicer but just by a little. I'll be back but not anytime soon.More
