We ordered cheese enchilada platters with a side of cucumber salad (which was a daily special) and roasted corn. I've rarely had worse enchiladas, and the salad was vey bland, albeit fresh. One orders at the counter inside then can choose indoor or outdoor seating...More

Great location in West Asheville with ample parking. Groovy cool interior with outdoor seating. Make sure you ask for the hotter salsa. I've eaten here a few times and each time, I leave full and satisfied. I love the Baja fish tacos, but the shrimp...More

We all really enjoyed our meal here. Everything is fresh and the tacos were delicious. Save room for the Chocolate tres leche cake. Yum!

Good Border Mexican food at reasonable prices. Speedy service. A true test of value: it is always busy. Has a large parking lot -- a rarity in Asheville. DO NOT miss this one if you're staying in West Asheville. And you can get there from...More
