“Best Mexican food in town.”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

This place may not have the greatest atmosphere for a Mexican food restaurant. The food makes up for the atmosphere. This place has the very best value for the buck. I understand thst most of the vegetables are locally grown.

I got the Bandera. It comes with three different enchiladas. The zucchini and Papacitos are the best vegetables to go with this. Just a heads up that both bean choices do have pig in them for the health conscious.

This place would get my vote for the best Mexican food in town award.

“Fresh Made Chips and Salsa”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

The freshly made chips were so thin and crisp, they only had one side! The fresh salsa was so good, we bought a 20 oz container to take home, for only $2.75! The enchiladas were great as well, covered with the best red chili sauce in town. I wanted a margarita, but all they had was the frozen variety so I gave it a pass. Our server was excellent, very attentive and friendly. They were really busy on a Friday night, we had about a 15 minute wait for a table, but it was worth it. Highly recommended.

“Try the Gordito Plate!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Most of the food on the menu is predictable but good. The Gorditos are spectacular though! The food is flavorful and well prepared. The price is reasonable.

“Slightly less than mediocre”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

Chips out of a bag, Pace picante sauce, no correct white Mexican cheese, tortilla's out of a package...Taco Cabana is better than this place. The meat was o.k. and the rice and beans
were acceptable. The service was also mediocre best.The Dylan Klebold wannabe that was my server was more interested in watching a baseball game on T.V. than giving me any modicum of service. You Lubbockites don't know what good Mexican food is!
