“Try the shrimp cocktail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

definitely the best standard Mexican place in Sumner Co. will cook food to order (like no onions in the shrimp cocktail, or vegetables well cooked in the fajitas. Most of the staff are from Jalisco. Have fun!

“Okay place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

having lived in Az,I find all Mexican restaurants around Gallatin to taste the same,,same red sauce on everything and way too much cheap quest.Atmosphere ok,crowded at the front entrance with people wating to sit,waiting to take out food,and checking out all in a few sq feet.

“homey excellent food, Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

we have gone here since moving to Gallatin and it is consistently excellent. i always get an off-menu Shrimp Cocktail (coctel cameron). It comes in a giant goblet, lime and tomato liquid with tons of big shrimp, loads of avocado chunks, cilantro tomato and onion. i add Valentina hot sauce and some table salsa. oh my goodness! it is great. also worth mentioning is the fajita el rey with shrimp, chicken, steak and CHORIZO. that's for the best flavor. it is enough for at least 2 meals. The wait staff are mostly from Guadalajara where I visited often years ago. Same owners as Dos Margaritas, but I just like the less fussy El Rey Azteca better. Enjoy!
