Nestled in the Quality Inn in East York is a very unassuming Mexican restaurant. After you sit down a lady instantly shows up with a cart and ask you if you want guacamole. She will make it for you on the spot, $5 for one avocado and $9 for two, and you can choose what she puts in it. It... More

Fantastic Mexican food. You have to get the Tableside Guacamole; it is by far the most incredible guac you will ever taste. Bring a buck or two cash to tip the lady who makes it. I always get the chimichangas, my husband loves to try different stuff and always get a chile reline, and my son loves the quesadillas (and... More

You could travel to Mexico or Peru and not get as good as here. Good food and charming decor/chairs.

Stopped in for lunch one afternoon. The decor is authentic Mexican-- bright and fun. Plenty of staff on hand. One woman rolled around a cart & made fresh guacamole right at your table. Bathrooms clean.

I've visited this place a few times. Enjoyed the soups, but main dishes have little flavor. Service is consistently slow; staff have limited knowledge of English. Prices very reasonable. I go to Baltimore for good Mexican Food

Not sure what the hype is all about. I have been scared to try this as it's in a motel lobby....Should've listened to my gut. Felt sick after eating here, atmosphere is strange, service not very good. Go down the street to Fiesta Mexico is craving Mexican.

We have been to this restaurants couple of times and we have never been disappointed. Good Food, good atmosphere and good friendly service (although we all can benefit from fluent English speaking waiters). Make sure you order freshly made to order Guacamole.

guacamole was made at our table, custom made. Quesadillas were hot and cheesy so i don't know where all of our negative feedbacks are coming from

I've been to this restaurant numerous times and everything is usually great. The servers were not attentive and rude, food was cold, all the orders were not correct and the children in our group didn't get their food. Horrible place and very disappointing. Would not recommend this place anymore.
