Delicious food. Very accommodating as we had a large party and you can't make reservations or call ahead. Tavo was our server and he did a phenomenal job handling the crowd. He was always on top of everything and never missed refilling drinks, salsas, etc....More

If you are traveling on I-40 near Oklahoma City, stop by here for one of the best Mexican Dinners you can get! Service was excellent, and the food was way above average. They make everything from scratch!!!

Our waiter Hunter had an excellent sense of humor and was witty on his feet for our group of 8! The cheese and sauce before ordering was a free pre meal!!! The food portions were huge and excellent flavor.

Excellent Tex-Mex food. Fast service in a traditional authentic setting. Their enchiladas are amazing and their homemade tortillas are fresh daily. You won’t be disappointed with the large variety of entrees. Just go early if you don’t won’t a long.
