We visited once again this Mexican restaurant. The food is consistently good. The service is fast and staff are very friendly. This visit was on a Saturday evening in October and the restaurant was packed with people not wearing masks when not eating. There was...absolutely no social distancing. So, we sat outside in the new covered area and the wait staff was very understanding.More

Friendly place. Lot of money for some rice and beans. Then they throw in some tough meat, no matter if chicken or beef, which is really tough.

We stopped here for lunch, but there was no lunch menu, maybe because it was Sunday. I had a combination of pork tamal and beef enchilada. It came with beans and rice. Soo good. The tamal was outstanding. Better than what I get at the...Mexican grocery. My husband had a plate Dos Amigos that had both chili verde and beef in a red pepper sauce. This was magnificent! I cant say enough good things about this place. On the main drag in town. Great sangria too.More

Just bought property there and seeking a go to place for Mexican. While service was excellent, the food was just so so. Sadly, the taquitos looked and tasted like they were frozen from a box. No cheese or any seasoning inside. Sad, because the nearby...competition in Roslyn is all from scratch. May try again, hoping for fresh made. Again, great service,clean, although cluttered.More

Mixed reviews. My partner had a bad experience. Mine was ok. Food is over salted and bland, even though it is generous. Terrible flat beer.

We were hungry and looking for a fun spot for lunch on our drive back from Leavenworth. Cute restaurant, friendly service, impressive menu selections with large portions and good prices. We were given coloring pages, crayons and children's menu to entertain the kiddos. We were...here on a Wednesday around 3pm and the only customers in the restaurant which was nice since we had noisy toddlers and babies in our group. As a mom, I also appreciate the clean diaper changing area in the bathroom!More

There were three of us for supper here and all were happy with our meal. I had the chimichanga dinner, which was more food than I needed. The portions are generous and the cost is moderate. The service was prompt and friendly. I was traveling...through so don’t know how it usually is, the place was pretty full so it appears to be a favorite spot. I would recommend it.More

I doubt if reservations are needed. It is a rather large facility, and also has outdoors dining. Even on a busy weekend, I can't imagine you would have to wait long. Try it - it's really good.
