You definitely have to have some Don Pepe if you like Mexican food. The staff is friendly and food comes quick overall I believe it is one of the popular hotspots for the locals.

I only got a picture of two of my brisket tacos because everything was so good I started eating before I thought to take a picture. Everything here was good starting with the chips and salsa and including the sides. It's simple Mexican that you find anywhere but they have the flavors done to perfection.

I lived on the Mexican border for 30 years, and love beef brisket and Mexican food with an equal passion. The tacos here were filled with tender barbecued brisket. If you've ever smoked brisket, you know it needs to be cooked "low, slow & long" to be tender. This meat certainly was. The tacos were made with corn tortillas ,... More

My wife and I go here all the time, in our opinion it's the best Mexican restaurant around. The Brisket tacos are in 1 word awesome. The cheese dip is my favorite as well compared to other restaurants. The workers are really nice and the prices are very affordable. Stop by when around the Chester area for some tasty Spanish...

There is a reason this is the Number 1 restaurant in Chester. It's really delicious! The good is spicy without being too hot on the one hand or too bland on the other. You plenty and it comes quickly. The service is good as well.

My family has frequented several local Mexican food restaurants in the Chester area and found this restaurant to be our top choice to satisfy our craving for food from south of the border. The staff are friendly and the service efficient. The prices are low and the portions are large. I highly recommend their specialty beef brisket tacos..outstanding.. and their... More

Modern Americana! Traveled from OBX to West End RVA to see grandkids. Stopped here for quick and easy meal before return trip. Full lot. Line waiting. Staff swirling. Kitchen clamoring. EVERYONE was pleasantly greeted and quickly seated. We ordered Mexican staples of chorizo and eggs, burritos and tamales. Prepared faster than expected with the crush. Fresh sweet tea was plentiful... More
