“Chicken dishes are great, but hate the potatoes in the beef dishes”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We've eaten here a number of times both for lunch and for evening. The lunch crowd is pretty good, adequate seating and nice lunch specials. I like several of their main dishes, but I just do not care for the pieces of potato in the beef dishes. I am thinking that they are using it at a filler?? You have to ask for tomato if you want it, which seems odd to me when it lists it in the description. The fresh, hot chips with salsa or the cheese sauce is a nice beginner.

“The best Mexican Food my family has ever had!”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Every time we go to Spencer we always stop here for supper. The food is awesome and the salsa is beyond words! I recommend the Monterrey salad. It is a great mix of many things and best of all it doesn't have that much lettuce :) Be sure to end every meal with the Banana Burrito. Oh so yummy....need to stop writing..getting very hungry.

They make strong strong drinks. The food is amazing and the wait staff is friendly, some may consider too friendly.
