“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 2, 2008

We ate here because we wanted Mexican food on the Sunday evening that we stayed in Amarillo and the higher rated restaurants were closed. The food and service were disappointing. We sampled the enchiladas and found all of them bland and light on ingredients. The tortilla soup had a bit more flavor. The chili relleno had almost no stuffing and also tasted bland. The staff started cleaning the place around us more than an hour before closing time. We felt rushed and dissatisfied.

“Best tex-mex in town”
Reviewed June 26, 2008

This place is a tie for me between this and Tacos Garcia. We eat here about 2-4 times a month. Excellent staff, good food (I prefer the enchaladas de cozumel with spinich instead of alvacado).

The flan is excellent to. Very worth the money.

It's our top pick for mexican food in Amarillo to date. Great drinks and the seafood is great, which is hard to find in the Texas Panhandle! Love that hot green sauce.
