“Out of Business, Aug, 2014”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

After much struggling, this restaurant is now out of business as of August, 2014. It's been clear they have been on the way out for some time, and while locals may be sad to see them go, their quality just wasn't up to par. That, plus an uncooperative landlord made it impossible for the operators to do a decent job.

“Disgusting!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

No clue how this place got good ratings! Cheese dip is yellow cheese from a can. The Mexican pizza is soggy and doesn't come with sides, as advertised. The tortillas have cinnamon and sugar on them? To dip in cheese .... really?! I can't even discuss the burrito! Stay away! I am not a food critic or snob, but I know cheap, microwaved food when I taste it! This is not authentic Mexican food! This isn't even as good Chevy's or Chipotle! Should have known something was up when I was all the empty tables on a Saturday night!

“MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN BRUNSWICK MD”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I enjoy eating here every time I am in Brunswick MD. I go to Harpers Ferry a lot to go kayaking and stop by here on my way back to Baltimore MD, some times I go camping at the campgrounds by the river.

“Nice surprise in Brunswick”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We were recommended this mexican place in Brunswick, el sloppy taco. If decent it would provide a nice addition to pick up food in the greater Lovettsville, Va area. The restaurant itself is located not far from the MARC station in Brunswick and thus parking places are easy to find. The seating in the restaurant is a tad homelike and not too inviting, but it is the food that matters. We ordered both tacos and burritos for take out. The food was a nice surprise and everything would have been even better if we had eaten it on the spot. None of what we ordered was greasy and it had a great taste. I can recommend this place if you are in the area or need a break from biking along the C&O canal. The prices are good and the staff is friendly.

“South of the Boarder in middle Maryland”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This was a pleasant surprise while hiking the C&O Canal towpath. This is an authentic Mexican restaurant, not some Taco Bell franchise. If you like it that way, muy bueno! If your taste are more anglo, well, go down the road a bit to Frederick and you’ll find something that will fit your taste. Very basic, there is outdoor seating on the street. Friendly staff, great menu selection and unique atmosphere. Mas savesa profavor!
