“Top Mexican food in town”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I don't have one bad thing to say about this restaurant. They serve amazing food and everyone who works there is always in the best of moods. I eat there at least once a week! I highly recommend you try this little restaurant because I know you won't be disappointed! Enjoy!

“small and overwhelmed”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

While in Lancaster for a conference we had supper at this restaurant, the food was fairly good, but not outstanding. The staff were helpful, but the restaurant is very small and they seemed very overwhelmed by the crowds from the conference that all descended on them at mealtimes (our breaks).

“So beyond terrible. The worst restaurant in Lancaster”
Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

Not only was the service terrible it came with attitude The food was Luke warm to cold and when we complained we were told what do you want us to do about it. Shrimp enchilada were made with canned shrimp and so tiny Smaller than a dime. Don't ask for chips and salsa they don't have it. Truly one of the worst restaurants on the east coast. Rated as a 1 because I could not rate a zero.

“Authentic and consistently delicious!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012 via mobile

Have dined here a number of times and have gotten takeout a number more times. The food is consistently fresh and well-prepared. I appreciate that there are lots of vegetarian options (not always easy to come by), and I also appreciate that the portions are normal-sized (not massive piles of food) and are appropriately priced.
