This is our family's favorite Mexican restaurant. We always get great service. The food is delicious. We have eaten at the Cinco in Cookeville, TN (owned by same family) and also great.

We were greeted by two greeters, immediately followed by the manager. Margaritas were excellent. Salsa served with tortillas before entree had layers of flavor and a spicy kick that hits the back if the throat, perfect. Fajitas were delivered faster than any I've ever ordered, and were delicious. There's a reason for all the great reviews. From two experienced Mexican... More

No matter when you go it is always busy. A very good sign. The place is very clean. Servers are very friendly. The food is always good, you get a lot to eat. Prices are very very reasonable. We go often.

Dined with the hubs here for dinner. The wait staff was very fast with the chips and salsa and drink orders. The chips were hot, fresh and crispy. The salsa was yummy with onion and cilantro. We received a small bowl rather than a carafe and individual bowls (something I prefer). I ordered a chicken fajita quesadilla. It was very... More

After driving all day, I checked into the hotel and just across the parking lot was a Mexican restaurant with bar. I was happy. And happier yet with a chilled Jameson and soda to accompany my enchilada. The staff was friendly and the food hit the spot.

Love the food, feel like I'm eating in a bus. Small cramped seating. Way too many people in such a small place. But the food and service is always good!
