“Good food, but put the jalapenos in the queso!”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Historic Downtown Bartow has really come to life in recent months. While shopping in the quaint shops, this is a nice place to have a bite. Food was good, ambiance average, but when we ordered the queso with jalapeno, twice, there was no jalapeno. Just melted cheese. The first time, we assumed it was an oversight, but the 2nd time, we asked the waiter for jalapenos for the dip. He brought over a side of jalapenos and charged us for it. Not cool.

“Charming Mexican restaurant in historic Bartow”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Followed the earlier review and decided to stop for lunch on our way to Orlando. Neat and clean, charming waitstaff, and my Carne Asada was so big it filled my dinner plate!

“Glad we stopped”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

There weren't many restaurants in Bartow. Because this place seemed busy, we took a chance. The food was authentic Mexican, servers were friendly and quick. Seems to be a local favorite. Very clean including the rest rooms. Great chips and salsa.
