I love Mexican food, but this restaurant was a disappointment. We chose this restaurant because it was the only thing open. The service was fast, but our server couldn't keep track of her tables and got the bills mixed up. The tamale was too bready...More

We were not extreamly pleased with the service. The waiter was very rushy with us and we had kids with us. That is why we were a little slow in ordering.

One of my favorite Mexican Restaurants in the area. Love, love, love their Chicken Soup (my favorite dish)!!! Additionally, both locations are great (Rutherfordton and Forest City)

Food and service was good. Glad we found this place. Clean. There are times when I have said what I wanted to say but your review site forces one to say more! Enough said.

Very good and authentic Mexican food, with delicious specials, lots of variety and reasonable prices. If you're staying in town, it's a great choice, if you have room for dessert, try the fried ice cream.

Food was authentic and service was quick and accurate, It was at a popular time of day, but it wa quiet enough for a conversation.
