I'm assuming because the restaurant was so busy that was why our service was not so great, and the food was average for Mexican food. I would give it another try to see if it would be better at another time. BTW you don't wait for your check to come; you go to the counter and tell them your table... More

The food is excellent and servings generous, we had the Carne Guisada and the Alambre dinners. The pre-meal chips and salsa were also good, not greasy and the salsa was eat-it-with-a-spoon tasty.

They have the absolutely the best tamales I've ever eaten. I also enjoyed the other options especially the taco. The meat was seasoned perfectly. The prices were reasonable and the food was very good. I'm looking forward to eating here again soon and taking home a dozen tamales too!

I go here often and the food is always good. The cheese enchiladas and the grilled chicken breast are great. The chips are always warm and the salsa is good but sometimes too hot for me. The service is usually fast unless the restaurant is full but it's still not too long of a wait.

We stopped in here while we were staying the weekend in Winnie for the Trade Days. The food is great and really delicious. We had the enchiladas, tacos, queso & chips and salsa also good.

Good food, good service, and fair pricing. I will go back. Everything we tried was good, and we live in a tex-mex region.

I've been here a few times and I've never been disappointed in either the service or food. This is my favorite place to eat in Winnie.
