Neighbors told us about this place so we decided to try it. We've frequented most of the Mexican food restaurants in Magnolia and my expectations were high because the parking lot is usually packed when we drive by. We ordered the jumbo house frozen margarita which was way too sweet and had only a hint of tequila. The salsa was... More

I've been going here for awhile now, it's definitely the best Mexican restaurant in Magnolia. The enchiladas are cheesy with not too much gravy and the fajitas are wonderful.

A bit loud but staff is friendly enough. I felt their food was just ok. Nothing special. Really enjoyed the more traditional Carne Guisada and charro beans. Skip the queso.

Good food. Good folks! Recently moved into a newly built facility. Outdoor dining overlooks a very busy roadway and can be distracting but the inside is very nice. Have patronized for years and the food is consistently good.

We tried this after they finally moved to their new place. Mainly just to give it a look but we found the food much better than when we stopped going there a few years ago. Enchiladas, chimichangas, burritos and tamales are all quite good. The magaritas are pretty average but if you order on the rocks with a premium tequila... More

This place is horrible! Menu's were filthy, food was still frozen, they obviously didn't put it in the microwave long enough. The guacamole was not even real it was some green sauce. The plastic glasses were chipped - thank goodness we had straws! Very overpriced for the quality you get. It needs to be $1.99 but that might still be... More

What a disappointment . After a year of watching the new building take over what was a beautifully wooded tract, then to see its just a new location for an existing restaurant . So we take a chance , thinking (hoping) they have new management along with the new digs. Nope, same old tired staff & menu in a brand... More
