At one time, this was the best Mexican food place in town to eat. Not anymore. Starting to look dirty. Food not hot. Chips were old. Service very sloppy and slow. Don't waste your time😭

There might be a wait but it will be worth it. Best mexican food in town. I have tried most of the menu and love everything, and great drinks as well. Don't drink more than 2 margarita's lol

Lunch meal was not hot enough from oven. The food wa too much like TV dinner meals but beef tacos were okay. I've eaten lunch meals here 5 or 6 times and 2 times they were good. I think I will drive to the Midland Jorge's for consistent better food.

Since I'm from Mexico I'm not a big fan of going to Mexican food restaurants in the U.S. since they don't taste the same. My friends decided to go here so I just accompanied them. Once I got into the place I liked it because it is clean and nice. Looking through the menu I could see that they had... More

I loved the salsa - my husband wished they had 'two flavors' (he's used to there being a red salsa and a green salsa)... but I really enjoyed the salsa they provided. The entree's were great as well. Highly recommended place to get Mexican food!

I used to work for the original owner the food was always great it is even better now. I like the Jorge's in Midland on Big Spring that's the best always clean and super busy so you know it's good.

Set with a single triangular napkin and a fork at each placing.the chips were stale the salsa was bland and thinner than my glass of water.I ordered the steak fajitas at 13.00.What I received was...

Our first time and everything was VERY good. Started out with margarita's, two sizes and you have to go with the large of course due to the value. Menu is extensive with multiples options for any desire. This restaurant is authentic with common menu choices that not all "gringo's" will eat but something for everyone. When plates arrived, all our... More

Staff is extremely incompetent. We ordered drinks, chips and queso. Then we ordered out meal. We got the wrong drinks, and then took our orders and said they'd bring us the correct drinks. We never got our drinks, but they did serve us a cold meal. Then they brought our queso out last with the check. Awful. It's too bad... More

If you like Margaritas, go here. The salsa and chips, pre-meal, are always fresh and good. However, the Mexican food is just a bit on the average side. Around 10 years ago, it seems like they took more pride in the food. Now, it just seems like, eh, whatever. Not horrible, but not the best either.
