“Worst Ever”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is by far the worst place I have ever been to. Not just for a Mexican restaurant, but overall. The fajitas were not made with any form of steak what so ever, the meat tasted like bottom round roast. The Chimichanga’s had very little shredded meat inside and the used potato and carrot as filler. The rice was dry and no flavor at all. They also served a dish called “avocado salad” which consisted of some romaine lettuce, red onion, tomato and about 5 small chunks of avocado. They should be ashamed to even remotely consider themselves a Mexican restaurant.

“Ick”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Worst food ever! The service is adequate. The decor is cheap & dated & the prices can't be beat, but beware! You get what you pay for. Perhaps I'm spoiled because I'm from tx & you can't throw a rock without hitting a mexican restaurant & apparently tx's worst food is miles above the stuff this place serves. The chips are served w/salsa that appears to be just tomatoes & a bowl of what appears to be mayo & ranch mixed together. The ground beef used has NO seasoning. The red sauce tasted like watered down heinz 57. There is absolutely no seasoning on anything. The beans were GRAY! What the heck makes beans gray? The food was pretty much inedible. We left & went next store to eat@ dairy queen! Save your time,$ & taste buds & stay away (unless you like super bland food & have never eaten mexican food before so you have nothing to compare it to)

“Delicious mexican food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Went for lunch one afternoon and I was amazed by the large portion size. I ordered a lunch special that included an enchilada, taco, rice and beans and it was around five bucks. I ate it all and it was delicious I left stuffed. If you are looking for a filling lunch at an exceptional price I would surely recommend this place. Our waitress was also pretty nice and she checked on us quite often. The place looks at little roughed up but hey what can you expect its an authentic mexican restaurant.

“Best mexican restaurant”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I'm a local and this is THE best Mexican food. We come all the time and are familiar with the workers. The food is excellent and all at a great price.
