“My second favorite Mexican place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I've eaten here many times and have yet to get bad food. Service is good to excellent and the tea is awesome if you like it brewed and sweet. Two locations in Kingsport and both have the same great quality. Personally I recommend the fajita quesadilla. Order queso and pour some on the quesadilla. It's heavenly!

“Excellent Mexican Fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

My husband and I finally tried the cute restaurant across from the hotel we stay at in Kingsport. We loved it. I had the giant quesadilla and he had the California beef burrito. Oh, my goodness! Both were huge and both were awesome! The salsa and chips were bottomless and great, too. The guacamole also very good. Our waiter was nice and gave us great service. We will definitely be back next time we are passing through.

“Marginal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Place was bright and clean. Food service was spotty. Food was brought to me without silverware and the butter knife given to me to cut the thin grizzle T-bone was insufficent. They forgot to bring me onions that came with the dish and when I mention this my server brough me out a plate of cold onions which I sent back to the kitchen to be fried. Sour Cream was also missing and had to bring this to the attention of my server. Refreid beans were very bland but the rice was fine. Corn chips were warm and the salsa was better that usual. I will not be back to frequent this restaurant. The server did apoligize for the issues with my food but the manage just happly took my money. Soft Taco's were best part of meal.
