If you want great food, friendly staff and don't mind the wait this is the place to go. We love it here and go at least once a month.

“Beltline bar, Move Over!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

As a huge fan of Beltline Bar for a lot of years, I've always sung its praises. My wife and I ate at Downtown Trini's Mexican restaurant the day after I brought home leftovers from the Beltline. This past week I had the opportunity to dine at both establishments. Interestinly enough, my meal at the Beltline was paid for my by my boss... The next day I ate at Downtown Trini's in Sparta, and the game was on. I've had several friends recommend this hot spot in Sparta, but it's a hike for us and we just happened to be in the neighborhood last week. They had some amazingly tasty goods...we'll be back very soon!

“Something special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

A mix of hole in the wall and fabulous Guacamole. Clean, spartan atmosphere doesn't even come to mind as friends meet and greet here. Always buzzing with chatter, great staff and good Mexican food... drinks never disappoint either. Definitely worth the stop if you want casual dining with little hassle.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

45 Minute wait on Tuesday during between the holidays. All u can eat taco night. Interesting establishment. Service was average. Enchilada plate was very good - proper sized. "Small" burrito was more than enough. Had a left-over the next day for lunch! They have a massive burrito. I can't imagine what that must be like! All was very good.

“Greatest Mexican food in the known universe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2009

Super delicious Mexican fare typical of any truly authentic small Mexican diner. They have odd hours so if your not familiar with the open days call first, and expect a wait. Everybody goes there so it's quite busy whenever they're open.

Every meal starts with their fresh homemade chips and salsa. It's not free but since every patron who's ever eaten there get them, the waitresses bring them out automatically, without you asking, just FYI. Order what ever you want as it will be the best you've ever had. Their margarita bar is incredible, I suggest the peach margarita. Also they have specials nearly every night so look for those as well. If your really hungry you can try your hand at the Wall-OF-Fame, where you have to eat 13 or more tacos in one hour.

As long as you are in West Michigan make sure to hit the place up so it can take it's place as your favorite restaurant of all time as well. Easy to find, just ask the nearest person when your here. Also easy on the wallet.
