The lunch specials are generous and reasonably priced. My always-hungry teenage son enjoyed the enchiladas, and wanted to return for dinner. My teenage daughters enjoyed the fajita burritos and took home enough for another meal. In my opinion, the fresh guacamole was the best. If...More

This is my favorite restaurant in Mac. The staff is excellent, the nicest and happiest wait staff ever. Food is consistently good and the service excellent. And the Cadillac Margarita is the best ever.

This was the worst dinner we have had in a long time. I had a chicken chimichanga. The chicken was so dry and tough that if it was twisted together, it would have made a substantial rope. The surrounding deep fried tortilla tasted of hundreds...More
