“Good Food. Odd Decor. Large Interior. Can Handle big Families.”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

The inside looks nothing like a Mexican restaurant. It looks like an old lodge that was once a 'down home cookin' type of restaurant that was converted. BUT, the tables are large and the atmosphere is clean and pleasant enough. The food was pretty good, plentiful and priced okay. The service was a little slow but friendly. We visited while on vacation, and we have seen the place crowded every time we've passed it in a week. We'd go back again, but we wouldn't 'write home about it.'

“Always Great”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

I like to see new restaurants open in Townsend and this by far gets a favorite. The food and service is always good. They start you out with free chips and salsa and all you can eat at that. You cannot go wrong with the Chicken Fajita Quesadillas. Yummy! All white meat grilled chicken with peppers, onions and cheese, all grilled to perfection. Sour cream is an extra 99 cents but they give you an entire bowl. This is definitely a must stop when you are in the Townsend area.

“It's really GOOD!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Being a bit discouraged about not finding good Mexican food in the area, we now have no worries. We eat here regularly because the food is always good and consistently so. Anything we order is delicious. The service is good, the chips and salsa are very good, etc. Can't say enough good about it. You will not be disappointed in your meal here.
Their menu is extensive. Chicken soup is out of this world! They add avocados to the soup and it's seasoned just right.
Enjoy. We highly recommend it!

“Good Deal for Good Eats”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I'm not really the person to evaluate its authenticity, but my family had a good filling tasty meal for very little money a short walk from Docks Motel where we were staying, so I recommend this place. It also happened to be about the only place open past 8 in Townsend!
