“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We ate here a week ago on our way home to South Texas. We chose it because we wanted Mexican, and it was close to our hotel. Since it's next to the Outlet center, we expected tourist trap. Nice building, and a lot of locals were there, which made us relax. Service was great, with a very helpful server, and the food was excellent. Really liked the chips and salsa. We will eat there again if we are in Gainesville at meal time.

“Best Guac!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

My Husband and I split the Fajitas for one and it was plenty! We had a combo of chicken, beef, and shrimp. The shrimp was really good. I think it was about the best guac I have ever had. My only complaint was they charge for chips and hot sauce which was fine but we were brought 2 bowls and really only requested one. So I felt like they should have asked one order or two.

“Best Mexican in Gainesville”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

Without a doubt best available in Gainesville. Eat here usually every week or 2. Chips and salsa good but pretty hot on occasion. Your average huge menu, fajitas, Queso, guacamole really good. Meat is tender and seasoned good. Sub out the refried beans for charo beans! Yum!

“Just not worth it”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Pricing is a little high for the menu quality. The food is at best average. Service was fine except the server seemed unsure of the menu details. Cracker Barrel nearby is a better alternative

“Seems very well managed”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The food is consistently good. Some portions are very large but even the more normal sized portions are big enough to get full. Easy on and off the interstate north of town. Great local place.
