Not planning to go there again. Tortilla soup was so salty, I sent it back. There was a beer bottle cap in our chips! We won't be back!

We wanted something more local for our dinner. This place came highly recommended. Server was prompt and friendly. I had a beef stew meal, Judy had chicken fajitas. Both delicious.

While the service was slow & it was obvious the locals were receiving the better service, the food was good, but the green sauce was fantastic!

I'm a regular here, and have been to this restaurant at least a hundred times as I live nearby. The servers are always friendly, and even remember my order when I walk in! Very good flavor, and the place is always kept clean. Low prices. I always look forward to eating here. To those of you who left negative reviews... More

Food was subpar. Not very flavorful. Prices high for what you get. Disappointed for the 2nd time I've been there. Wish another Mexican restaurant would open up in Jefferson.

The Taco Salad was average as were the Taco Dinner and the Beef Fajitas. My sister in law ordered the Pechuga A La Michoacana and... More

Decided to try this place on a Sunday evening whilst visiting Jefferson and thoroughly enjoyed my dinner. I ordered the special, Jalapeno grilled pork chops, which were delicious. My only complaint is that they didn't come with tortillas, but I didn't mind ordering them as an extra item. Service was great, the restaurant was very clean and presentable, and the... More

We had some good Mexican food! Everything we tasted was good from the chips, refried beans, fajitas, tortillas, tortilla soup! The service was quick and friendly. We will definitely go back.
