My wife and I stop in here often, when we are in Temple. The breakfasts and lunches are very good and I can only assume the evenings are good as well.

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.

The food, drinks and service were all excellent. There were five in our party plus 2 kids. We were seated right away and our waitress was prompt in taking our drink orders. The Mexican menu had just about everything. I ordered the mixed chicken and beef fajitas with cheese and mushrooms and corn tortillas. Excellent!!!!! Chip and dip was great.... More

I've said, I don't know how many times, service is king. And if I'd gotten better service this place would be sitting pretty with a 5 star rating. However, after entering and sitting down, I waited 15 minutes before anyone even asked if I'd been helped yet. The menu was pretty, and had lots of choices, but my regular choices... More

Excellent food and service. Great portions for the money. The beef enchiladas is one of my favorites and add a side of guacamole with chips - fantastic. This is my favorite restaurant for good Mexican food in Temple.
