This restaurant was located adjacent to my hotel and was recommended my the hotel staff. I was immediately greeted and seated and almost immediately my waitress appeared to take my drink order. Once I ordered, my food was prepared and delivered to my table very quickly. The food seemed to be freshly prepared and served hot. I enjoyed my meal... More

I had the chori-pollo and it was delicious. Grilled chorizo, chicken and cheese, with rice and beans. Perhaps it was a bit much for lunch because now I need a nap! Excellent waiter, too. I'll be back.

This restaurant has friendly staff, quick service, and decent food. I have enjoyed several of the lunch combos that cost below $8, which are more than worth it. The enchiladas and tacos are great.

My wife and I eat here every 3 weeks or so. Their white chip dip is fantastic. I always have some sort of steak meal.

Wonderful margaritas, a chicken pork beef and chorizo mixture in a 10 pound lava rock bowl, and great chips. What else could you ask for after a road day? Right next door to the Sleep Inn made it easy to relax. If I'm back in the area I'll be eating here again.

This restaurant is across the street from our hotel that we're staying in right of 95 on the way down to Florida. Nice surprise. Very reasonable. Great margaritas, generous portions, well-seasoned fajitas and carne asada. And great service.

Our sever was new, yet she did an outstanding job of serving quickly, attentively and pleasantly. The food was as good as any Mexican restaurant with comparable prices. The restaurant was nicely decorated and had sports on TV in several places. One very minor flaw was a section of unreplaced ceiling tile stained from past water damage. I would definitely... More

This is a local chain and we are always happy with the lunches. I usually get the side order of beef burritos--2--and they are always perfect. Wife usually gets one burrito, refried beans, rice--lunch special #2. Consistently the same and good. We are not Mexican food experts. Fastest food we ever get at early lunch. Waitstaff is friendly and pleasant.

This is a favorite mexican restaurant of Spotsylvanians and those of the greater FBurg area. It is a quiet cool place with large booths and even larger tables with two big screen TVs broadcasting the sport du jour. The wait staff is attentive and quickly ushers out mountainous baskets of chips and extremely delightful salsa both red and white (their... More
