We ate from the buffet - the food was luke-warm and did not taste like Mexican food. We had heard it was the best in the area - but we noticed there is a lack of Mexican food places in the UP.

We eat here about once a month for dinner & always have a good meal. It's fresh, great homemade salsa & guacamole. Haven't been to the buffet in a awhile, but they used to have quite a selection (soup, salad, soft & hard tacos, 2 types of chimis, & the best choc. chip cookies.
If the food wasn't good as 2 reviewers stated, then why is the place always busy for dinner on the weekends? My biggest complaint is sometimes it takes awhile to get your food bcz it is so busy!

The lunch beffet was tasteless and over cooked. Three items tacos, chili and chimichangas do not make a buffet. More like a taco bar. Everything was overcooked and flavorless. I would not eat here again if it was free.

There was no flavor to anything. They have a buffet on occasion which is just as poor as the menu items. We have tried them numerous times as they are the only Mexican restaurant in the area. We just cook Mexican at home now to avoid the frustration.
