We eat here about once a week. They are typically fast and the food is great. Good salsa and earn chips. My big complaint is they allow smoking in the back dining room and they don't have good vents so it comes into the main room. I thought York county was suppose to be smoke free!!!! I always try to...

Some of the best Mexican we've had in the greater Charlotte area. Worth the trip to Clover and surprisingly good for such a small town

I ate the same thing I have ordered here for the past 4 years - The Julie Special. It used to fill the entire serving platter and was more than I could eat. This week the serving size did not fill 3/4 of the platter. The price I paid for this was one of the highest on the entire menu.... More

This is a family owned eatery and they are involved in the community. THeir sponsorship of youth teams and the local schools is evident from the awards and pictures on the walls. The food is not the best Mexican I have ever had but it has never been bad and I have never left hungry. The ironic fact about this... More
