Big menu with lots of Northern Mexican regional choices. Our favorites are the Milanesa, the Carne Asado con Nopales, and the Shrimp Soup. Que rico!

I was a little surprised to see this restaurant rated in the 70's in Temple, but that Chick-fil-A and Cracker Barrel were in the top ten, so that told me a lot about who is reviewing. This is a small, family business with several locations....More

Early evening visit, had the combination fajitas, steak, chicken and shrimp, steak and chicken, great flavor, beef a little tough, shrimp was bland tasting. However, the beans were some of the best I've ever eaten and the rice was just right.

Beans not good, rice not good, enchilidas ok. I have eaten many different mexican restaurants and this one really fell below standard. Wish it was better. Pretty disappointing. Main entryway without air conditioning.

Since I'm a frequent flyer to the super 8 hotel (on the same ground), I've ordered food to go almost every stop there. However the orders are always items that have requested. The food is but the service lacks follow thru.

We go here almost every Wednesday for their $9.99 Combo Fajitas. The wait staff is good and the food is quality. The serving sizes are ample as well. Definitely give this place a try!👍

First time I've actually been argued with by waitstaff over whether ground mush is fajita meat. Slow, Slow service. Bland food. Not recommended.

Four of went for dinner thanksgiving week. The food was wonderful and plentiful. We got there kind of late and were the last to leave but our waitress was really awesome. She did not try to hurry us out and was very attentive.
