If you want real Mexican food and Mexican food that actually has good flavor come here! We love to get the fajitas Mojente, salsa tomatillo, fried jalapeños and guacamole Casera! But everything is good here and has full flavor and the staff is excellent!

My family of foodies enjoys trying new things and new places. We have tried all of the "Mexican" places in town. Any place that survives is really more "Tex-Mex". This is our favorite (every Sunday) place.

This restaurant provides good food and good service. My meal was hot and delicious. Although we did not have any alcohol, it looks like they have a good selection of cold beers on tap.

I stopped in and ordered chimichangas. It was great. I think their food is more authentic than the other places here in Cookeville. This is my new go to spot for Mexican food.

We spent the night in Cookeville and found this on Tripadvisor. We're glad we drove past many restaurants to get there. Our food (Nachos Con Fajitas & Chimichanga) were delicious! Even the refried beans were seasoned well (rare). Our waiter was so happy and eager...to please. And the place was very clean.More

The food here is really good. The special fajitas (i forget the name but it is served in a conical pot) is my favorite, but i've never had anything i didn't like. The service is always friendly. It's much farther for us to drive to...(we live west of Cookeville and this is almost to Algood) but when we want Mexican, this is where we go. Worth the extra effort!More
