My wife and I each had the Hungry Hombre. Lots of food, very delicious and hot (temperature wise not spicy). Service was pretty quick for a Saturday night.

This generally has been my favorite Mexican restaurant in Richmond. I have to eat gluten free and at one time the menus designated gluten free options. However, this is no longer the case. My wife and I dined there on a Sunday night and both ordered the Arroz con pollo, my favorite dish. It comes with refried beans and a... More

Food is good but nothing special. Very salty even for Mexican food. Atmosphere is fun & location is great for shopping. Service was very good. Drinks were delicious - especially the frozen sangria - a cross between traditional sangria and a marguerita.

We have been going here for years and the food and service is always good. We usually like to sit outside when the weather is nice.

Near the beginning (western) edge of Carytown, this simple and relaxed cantina offers a nice array of quality (strong) cocktails, typical appetizers and tasty entrees at reasonable prices in a pleasant environment. The outdoor deck is nice, as are the first and second floor indoor sections. Waitstaff are friendly, competent and timely. Nothing fancy or out of the ordinary, but... More

OK, let's get right to it. Great Margaritas! Great daiquiris! Very good food, as everyone in our party of 5 (4 adults and a 5 year old) attested to. This place is by no means fancy, but serves great Tex-Mex. Did I mention the margaritas?

We were looking for some Tex-Mex food and we finally found some. The food portions were very good size. The child's nachos were very well portioned. The Southwest Eggrolls were a meal with a couple leftover. The lunch fajitas were good size but the meat was slightly over cooked. Our cheapest meal in Richmond yet. A family of 4 it... More

Ok, Mexican food is one of my favs. I've been to several over my time on this earth. This was a pleasant surprise! Suggested by my son! Flavorful, hot, fresh, delicious! They are right it's "Nacho Mama's" typical Mexican food. Can't wait to go back! 🌯🌮
