This is your place. Good Mexican food and at great prices. It can get real busy especially at lunch, but definitely worth stopping in

The restaurant was very busy, but the service was great! Table side guacamole is the best! A great place to eat if you're in Lynchburg.

Good Margarita's, good food and very good wait staff. Had a large party and they were ready for us when we came through the door. It sits at the end of a shopping center, so use your GPS to find it if not familiar with the area. Small, but warm and friendly. Everything was served hot and timely. If you... More

Good Mexican food menu and prices are reasonable. Service was very good although atmosphere is lacking primarily because of table crowding.
