We stopped here on the way to a school function after not being able to find a steak and shake due to a gps error. We should have kept looking. The food was okay not great, not necessarily bad, just okay.

Newly opened and we went to try it out. Initial service was good but follow-up service was bad. We ordered beer and they served the chips and salsa right away. The salsa lacked body and character. The chips tasted stale and left a greasy after taste. My wife ordered three soft chicken tacos and I ordered three beef hard shell tacos. My wife said hers were very good. Mine were bland as the beef had no taste . We had to flag the wait staff down to get water and also later to get the bill. Someone said this was the best Mexican restaurant in Joplin. I would place it in fourth (4) place - behind El Vallarta and the two Del Rio. We were there prior to it being destroyed by the tornado. Going back was a disappointment and I question if I will go back again.
