Wow. You never have to ask if the guac is fresh. They make it for your right at the table. One person is assigned this task and roams table to table. Either to see if you would like some or to fulfill your order. The one avocado mixture with the chips for the table was more than enough for one... More

The service combined with the very tasty food makes this a great stop for Tex-Mex food. The table-side guacamole is some of the best around.

My family was visiting the area and my son has gotten several Cinco De Mayo shirts from this restaurant from his aunt and uncle so we had to try it out. The restaurant is attached to a less than stellar hotel/motel but don't let that fool you, it's great. They make guacamole table side! The street tacos were fantastic and... More

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.
