“Im Mexican and this place is not good Mexican food!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

I'm a Californian and it's really hard finding good Mexican food at the lake! There is so many Mexican restaurants but no one really can pull it off here in Missouri land! The "chili verde" tamales where horrible!! They obviously don't know what chili verde is because when they brought them out it was red! Not green?? The salsa was not good. The atmosphere was nice. Good place to grab a beer or margarita but not food!! Won't be going back.

“Good mexican”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I thought it was very good. Margaritas were good as well as the food! Salsa needed something, though...was kind of tasteless for a Mexican place. My son in law even asked if they had something he could put in it to spice it up a bit!
Prices were good, too.

“We always eat there when visiting the Lake”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had dinner there after a long day of shopping over the holiday weekend, it was busy but the service was great and the time we had to wait for food was normal. They have the best chips and beef chimi's! We always stop in to eat when visiting the lake and its always good!

“Mexican food”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Had great service. Nice clean restaurant but outside of that it is just average on food. I had the Grande plate (ground beef taco, burrito and enchilada. Sides beans and rice. Ordered guacamole too. Chips brought warm with salsa. Salsa was OK, wife loved it. Wife agrees just average food overall. Very busy on a late fall Friday night.
