“This one will surprise you!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

You have to figure out how to get into this small gem. Behind a gas station, next to the Waffle House, park around back. The inside could use some serious updates, but you soon forget that as soon as your very attentive waiter brings you some chips and salsa. It's true - you get those anywhere but not as good as here. Everything on the menu is good. Try to go at the early part of mealtime to be sure to get a table.

“A very good find”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

I had twelve people in for lunch. It was crowded but we were seated quick. The food was great and the service nice. This is a very good find.

“Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

I was greeted quickly and seated. Chips and also immediately was delivered to my table. The chicken enchiladas were so good that I had to order another with the special green chili/cheese sauce. Price was cheap and great food to boot!

“Don't Pass This One By”
Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

The name has changed to Cinco Amigos but still the same operators. Excellent food, enormous portions and great margaritas. It is sandwiched between a Holiday Inn Express and a Days Inn and overlooks a gas station, but once you walk in, the decor makes you forget the location. Great service and shoot value

“Outstanding food and service!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Dora and Bernardo have ensured that their staff--in the kitchen and on the floor--are very well trained. The food is delicious and the service is always superb. They provide the best Mexican food that we've found since moving here from San Antonio, Texas.
