There are five mexican resturants in Ankeny, and we think this one is the best. Their food is great tasting and not to spicy. We love their salsa. The portions are large, and prices are very reasonable. Not much more to say other than we will be back. I do agree with other reviews, that the servers get to jacking with each other, and makes the srevice lacking.

Some years ago I worked in Monterrey, Mexico for a few weeks. A drink to which I was introduced was the BANDERA (that's FLAG in Spanish). It is three shot glasses of liquid; sangrita (not the sangria wine), white tequila, and lime juice. Each is in their own separate glass and represent the flag of Mexico. This is the only Mexican restaruant in town that knew with my first request what I was ordering.
The food is very good. I have tried various dished and have never been disappointed. Tingas are fried correctly with the entire tortilla fried throug and not uncooked on the inside.
The Chiles relleno are the largest I have found in the are and two of those are almost enough, with their excellent chips and salsa to make a meal for me.
I have, and do patronize another Mexican restaruant in town but feel that this is the best for their region of Mexico. The other is best for their regional cooking. Can't beat two good Mexican restaurants that re close by.

This is, without a doubt, my favorite Mexican Restaurant in the greater Des Moines area. The Chicken Fajita Taco Salad is second to none. You need a knife to cut the chicken, to fully appreciate the Chicken Tortilla Soup -- delicious!
