I was given the recommendation by a co-worker to have dinner here. I have to admit it wasn't to bad! The tortilla chips and salsa bar are all made fresh. The portion of food I received was huge and tasted very good. The service was excellent and the price was very inexpensive. I will be back when I pass through... More

I wasn't expecting quality mexican food in Cedar City, to be honest. But 2 of my friends recommended it so we all went one night for dinner. While I wouldn't say it was the MOST amazing food, it was definitely delicious and worth the price. The atmosphere was very friendly and the wait staff were, as well.

The Mexican flag three enchilada combo was fantastic especially with the three sauces. The rice and re-fried beans were great compliments to the supper. Plus the welcoming free taco chips and salsa are a fine appetizer. This is becoming a favourite stop while in Cedar City!

A restaurant that's overfilled with Mexican crap for sale, in the entry, on the walls, ceilings and counters. I was waiting for the beach vendors to stop by the table and offer me us a 'blue light special' - that's a K-Mart is'm if your under 50. So the place is 1/3 full with 4 waitresses and you wait a...

We have been going to our local favorite, Chiquita's Mexican Restaurant (in San Diego, CA) for 30 years, so it is very difficult to compare a 'new' Mexican restaurant to them. However the four of us did enjoy our meals and even the eleven year old picky eater ate her entire quesadilla and some of her rice. (Rare, for her!)... More

We are afforded the opportunity to visit many good restaurants and this place is the bomb! The food is absolutely fantastic and the portions completely fill the plate. Our service from our waitress was impeccable. Prices are reasonable and the staff keeps the place clean. Enjoyed ourselves& would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys authentic Mexican food.

We went to this restaurant to get some good Mexican food. It was very good. They have a variety of excellent salsas for any taste. We ordered an appetizer and an entree and really couldn't finish all the food.

The salsa was awesome so we were excited, but the enchiladas were flat. The service was terrible too. We asked for water refills and waited a good 20 minutes for refills. We finally walked up to the register without a check and they had to get our waitress to write one up.

This is a neat little restaurant, with what appeared to be quite a bit repeat local traffic. Good food, good pricing, friendly waitresses, easy to find. I would give it a 4-star rating for overall value.
