We try to support small business and my husband and other golfers have eaten here frequently. No more! Every takeout, something is missing! Tortillas for fajitas, the sides, salsa the list goes on. On occasion this was corrected by adding item to next order. Today...as on other occasions, refused! Treated very rudely! I called the manager, saying we were frequent customers,trying to support and told him of problems. He said" It happens, he had no comment and didn't care if I wrote review and didn't care if none of us came back!" Message received. Will never support this business again and advising all friends. We certainly will be telling all our Taylorsville friends as well. Such rudeness. We want to keep small businesses supported, but some level of gratitude, even small, would be appreciated!More

Waited for an hour for my food and then it was cold. It seems that.takeout takes priority over sit down customers.

Great food. Clean place. Loved some of the tile work inside. We saw the sign as we walked in, $5.99 Lunch Fajitas, so we didn't even need to see a menu. They came out sizziling on the skillets. Was more than we could eat and...really enjoyed the food. Will go back.More

I love Mexican food and have tried almost every restaurant in the area but this one is my favorite! They make their own guacamole to order and it is fabulous. Everything is made from fresh ingredients and is scrumptious. I recommend the fajitas, the quesadilla...and about anything else on the menu you might choose. The prices are good and the portions are large.More

We enjoy going here. The food is good and you don't have the long waits in the Hickory area. Chips, salsa and a draft beer! Can't beat it!

The staff was friendly, but it took too long for the food to arrive, approximately 25 minutes. Husband got a shrimp quesadilla that was average. I got beef tacos that had no seasoning or any flavor at all. They didnt taste bad, they were just...very bland. We really liked the chips, the salsa was just OK. We might try it again if it was a Sunday and nothing else open like this time when passing through, or, if I was craving chips and salsa.More

We took our Niece last night for her birthday and we were not disappointed. My wife ordered the chicken fajita salad. Plenty of chicken in the salad and it turned out to be too much! Our Niece had the fajita nachos with a combination of...chicken and steak. She devoured her dish. I had the Guadalajara combination plate which includes rice and beans, 2 flautas, a tamale and pulled chicken nachos covered with lettuce tomato and sour cream. Avocado is also included, but choose not to include. This is my “go to” dish when I am hungry....otherwise I usually get a 2 item combo. All the food was great and the chips and salsa was delicious. We will be backMore
