We arrived at 4:30 on a Tuesday (just missed Happy Hour). There was no one to greet us at the door. We waited about 3 minutes to be seated. Tuesday's special was 'buy one combo A-L, get one for $3.99' (about half price). Our young children, who don't care for Mexican food, ordered a hotdog and a cheeseburger from the kids menu (reasonably priced at $3.75). I had the chicken quesadilla with beans and rice, my husband had a beef enchilada and burrito. My mother-in-law asked for beef instead of chicken in her quesadilla. The chips and salsa were terrific. When they brought my mother-in-laws quesadilla, it was chicken, not beef. However, they promptly fixed it. Everyone enjoyed their food. We will be returning!

Food and service were both excellent. Plan to go back and try the mole. I do wish the Margarita mix was a little less sweet. Prices are very reasonable.

This is head and shoulders above the other mexican restaurants in town. I'd recommend to anyone, the service is outstanding, the food is great, a large menus selection, and AWESOME drink specials. Can't miss out on this place, right across from Tiger Town!

The cheese dip was the best part of the meal. While nothing was bad, nothing was great either. Average all the way.
