Monday night's are family night and kids eat free. Our 10 year old enjoyed his balloon animal the gentleman made for him. The staff is always super friendly, always smiling, never any bad vibes. Food is fantastic too! Very flavorful and always hot when it comes out to the table.

Delicious food and service served super fast! They will also accommodate a special diet and leave ingredients out as requested. There is a very large menu, a back room for meetings, an outdoor patio when the weather cooperates, and friendly, fast service.

Had dinner with my son and he got sick immediately after he ate. I'd rather make the trek across town to Chuy's .

Many years ago, over 15, we found this tiny family owned Mexican restaurant simply named "Mexico." I, my husband, and our six kids LOVED it. We ate there twice a month or more in those early days. As they grew, we noticed a gradual decline in the food. I can't say the "quality" is poor, but the taste is far... More

Not the best in the state but still pretty good Mexican food. My favorite is the Texas Fajita. Customer service is good.

The food was as average as any other Mexican restaurant I have eaten in over a long period of time. I had heard that the food here was better than average. Not to me. Restaurant was a lot above others in the Richmond area.

Good place, with great food. My companion and I had different types of fajitas. I has the texanas (which I might be misspelling) and she had the one with pineapple, scallops, shrimp and chicken. I found mine to be well cooked, have tender beef, but needed a bit of salt. Hers was a show stopper to look at and neither... More

The food was great! Our waiter was unfriendly and unobservant . Never offered refills even after my boyfriend was drinking out of my glass. We also waiting too long for our check after we had finished. At least the food was good.

Food was superb! Ordered an appetizer platter and dinner portions at lunch today,, even though lunch menu / portions were available. Fajitas Texanas for two (my bride and my favorite at at any Mexican fare restaurant) was a sheer delight. Fajitas came out sizzling hot same time as our appetizer platter. Wow, that's quick. Be sure to ask for the... More
