When so many Mextaurants have opened on the coast over the last ten plus years this remains my go-to for authentic Mexican fare. Home made chips and margaritas never disappoint. Everything from the kitchen comes hot and flavorful especially Chiles rellenos or any of the enchiladas. Come early and leave full.

Small ,locally owned and ran.. if you love authentic food. Tony and his one guy get it right every time. And if you come on a regular basis he will know you and what you want. I love the personal service and small cozy environment.. highly recommended!!!

We recently started making the trip to this restaurant and it has quickly become out favorite for Mexican food. Tony could not be a nicer, warmer or more gracious man, and he remembered not only our faces, but what we ordered. When my order came out with beef instead of chicken, I had the correct meal about 30 seconds later, instead of not at all, or after the rest of our group were done eating as has happened in other restaurants. This is not an easy place to find unless you know where it is and being small if you blink you miss it. But from what we see it has a loyal following developed over the 40+ years they have been in business. They are proud of being the first Mexican restaurant on the MS Gulf coast and we are happy to continue to introduce more of our friends to them.

A taco salad is usually a safe bet at any Mexican restaurant. Maybe they were having a bad day. A sprinkle of lettuce on a plate topped with dry taco meat is not what I was expecting. And, service was slow. Not that many people in there. Don't know what the problem was but it was a terrible experience.

One of the best Mexican food dishes I've eaten in a while. Great service at this cozy little spot with great food the whole family loved.
