“Decent Roadside Mexican”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Do not expect anything special here. Home-style cooking, large portions, fast service, and a building in need of repair. You could do much worse thought.

“Good Food and Good Service”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Best place in town for Mexican or Tex-Mex meals. Their quality and quantity of food has been consistent, their prices are reasonable, although not fancy the restaurant is clean and the service is good.

“Good Food, service was lousy.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I have been going there for years. In the past, the food has not been that good. Now it is the complete opposite. Food was good, fresh, large portions. The service was lousy. Felt like we were a hindrance to the waitperson. Maybe she was having an off day, but it will be a while before we go back because of it. Front of the store is boarded up, not sure why, but they should fix it.

“Tasteless”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

First I have to give the restaurant staff high marks, and the servings were huge and prices quite reasonable, but the food was a disappointment. Having lived along the Texas-Mexico border and frequently visited Mexico, I found the food bland and almost tasteless. The "salsa" appeared to be a few chopped up vegetables in V-8. If you do not like spicy food (find Taco Belle spicy), you might enjoy this version of Mexican food. I prefer a lot more flavor.

“Good food, Decent Price”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I have visited this location a few times. The food is more Mexican than the Taco Johns or Taco Bell in town. I will say that I don't know a lot about Mexican food, but I feel safe in venturing the guess that this isn't really true Mexican cuisine either.

I have yet to find a nice spicy/hot dish here. Last time I ordered the only thing on the menu labeled "SPICY" in red letters. It was far from anything I would call spicy... So if that is what you are looking for either avoid this place or be prepared to empty the 'hot sauce' bottle on the table.
