Super place for your Mexican fix. The staff are very friendly and the service is quick. The food is excellent, and if you have a tooth for HOT, try their hot salsa. It's sure to put a fire in your experience. All dishes I have had are very tasty, and the endless chips/salsa are a plus. Some Mexican beers, regular... More

I had looked at reviews before heading on this trip. And when we got to Parkersburg we saw that it was just a block from our motel. We really enjoyed our supper. Good food and fairly quickly service. Would definitely come back.

Although we've lived in the area for nearly 3 years, we had only recently tried this place. I honestly worried it might be a less than satisfactory chain type place so we usually avoided it. However, after a little encouragement from a relative who was visiting, we tried it, and we were definitely surprised. The interior is very over-the-top decorated... More
