This was close to our hotel and we decided to try it. Prices ate reasonable. The rice with my carne asada was cooked with too much water. Although the flavor was good, it was kind of tough and needed to be chewed for a long...More

The food here is a little above average among typical Mexican restaurants in the southern US. Although there is better Mexican food to be had in the Asheville area (Papas and Beer, Polanco, Limon for example), this place stands out at lunchtime because of its...More

Good Mexican food. There is a salsa bar at the front with a large variety, which is a plus if you have a family who have differing tastes. The service was good and the food was great. Large portions so you don't leave hungry.

We had been told about this restaurant by a friend and had high expectations. First of all we were thrilled that it was pet friendly with an outdoor patio seating area where we were able to enjoy dinner with our small dog. The chips and...More

Typical Mexican fare. I had the California Burrito. It was a chicken burrito filled with avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, rice & refried beans. Food was good, service was good, price was good. It was very convenient to several motels in the area on Tunnel Rd.
