“Our favorite Mexican place!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We absolutely love this place! Our family has been going here every Sunday for at least the last 10 years and it never gets old. The waitstaff is like family. Also love that they are always adding new and different stuff to the menu. I do know that if you are going at lunch time get there early because it will be packed. Goes to show you how good the food is!

“Mom and pop restaurant”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a small mom & pop Mexican restaurant, next to Fort Bragg . It's in no way fancy. You know what your getting by looking at the place. If looking for atmosphere go somewhere else.
The food was good and simple. Did not wait long for the food or the bill.

“Quite decent for Spring Lake, NC”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

The staff was friendly and the service fast. I had the California Burrito and my wife has the Chile Pablano's. The food was good and it came fast and it was hot. Loved the hole in wall atmosphere with cheesy decor, the Spanish language TV and all. Not the best Mexican food we ever had but you won't do any better in Spring Lake. No issues, likely to return.

Food is always good here and the staff is very friendly. Service is fast. Convenient to Ft. Bragg. A "go-to" place.

“Would rather eat out of a toilet”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Awful food, awful drinks, awful service. Among the things we ordered we didn't receive a beer, cheese dip, and some entrees were missing. Keep in mind it was a slow night and a party of six. Food was so terrible most of our party couldn't eat it. Drinks were terrible. Limes smelled like bleach. Waited at least thirty minutes for our checks. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.
