“Great salsa! Period...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Welcoming, affordable and great selection. The homemade salsa is outstanding. The chicken chipotle soup was a really nice treat. Try it... It's the neighborhood real family South of the Border restaurant.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Every time I'm in St. Charles, I have to eat here. Just absolutely love this place. I'm sure it's not great for my health since the portions are so big, but since I don't live close to an On the Border, I'm sure once in awhile is OK.

“Had to get doggie bags to take home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Both my wife and I ordered the pick four off the menu. We know that it would be too much but since we were staying at a nearby motel knew that we would have leftovers for lunch the next day. We were stuffed when we left and had ample for lunch.

“Average TexMex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

The food here was ok, average texmex. The service was really good and the margaritas were good too. Probably won't be back though.
