I really enjoy Mexican foods and was looking forward to a great meal. This place was recommended by the hotel staff where I was staying. The waiter was friendly and willing to describe the various dishes to us. When the food came out, I found the portions to be generous and filled with good quality meats and veggies. I had... More

Actually have never been disappointed here. There is a chicken dish on the menu under $5 that is fabulous. Servers are not very friendly but professional and the food is hot and tasty.

The food was ok but the salsa is runny. They need to thicken it up, but this is as close to authentic as you going to get in the area.

In my opinion this is the best Mexican food in Morgantown. They use some kind of white cheese that is phenomenal. They still bring out free chips and salsa. A lot of Mexican places have stopped doing that. There margaritas are also good. Their quesadillas and tacos are very good.

The best Mexican restaurant in Morgantown. Don't forget to order a margarita or 2. I had the Tacos de Fajitas and my wife had the chicken quesadilla. They were both excellent.

I've only had a few trips to Mexico, but the food at this restaurant in the hills is as close as it gets, at least to me with limited experience. Service is great. Portions are huge. Decor is tacky-wonderful with painted a sombrero topped donkey and cacti on the walls. You'll love it. Get a booth.

The plates are generous and the guacamole is addicting. Be careful of the margaritas. They add an extra kick not found in most restaurants. It's best to go there when you are hungry.

I ordered a combo dinner and was looking forward to a chile relleno, but got some kind of meat paste and no pepper. The waitress never returned for awhilw after serving our food. I asaked where the pepper was and she related that I would have had to ask for the Mexican one. I have never ordered this anywhere and... More
