“Good service, watery salsa”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

My husband and I got lost looking for another restaurant on I-25 highway and ended up here.
We love Mexican food and decided to give it a try. First, the good things. My taco salad was good and a much cheaper price than usual. The bright tropical colors of our seats were nice too. Now, the bad things.
The salsa that is given when you first sit down was very, very watery. Not chunky and watery, just
95% clear liquid with a few chopped tomatoes. My husband got his usual as at other Mexican restaurants-Carne Asada, and the steak was chopped like it was for a fajita, not one whole piece
of steak. The last but certainly not least bad thing was, while my husband was in the men's bathroom, he noticed no hand soap anywhere and the salsa/water waiter came in, used the bathroom and left not washing his hands! After he told me this, I immediately went to the ladies room to check, but they did have hand soap. We will not be going back here.

“Great all the way from the food to the service”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Friendly fast service and great atmosphere. Food was tasty and would certainly come back however, I do not live in the Colorado Springs area.

The dining area was clean and very cheery.

“Tamales were the best ever. Wish we lived closer”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This was next to our motel, so though it normally wouldn't have caught my eye, it was convenient. Inside décor was the painted carved chairs and booths that Mexican restaurants order from ???? Anyway, the food was great. Normally not a tamale eater but it came on my combo dinner, and it was excellent. My husband had a chicken dish and said it was very good as well.
