“A good local ethnic eatery.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We has chicken fajitas for two with frozen margaritas. The food, service and price was OK. The fajitas were a little on the salty side and the salsa was a little bland but overall, a good Mexican establishment, especially for a town of this size.

“Good Authentic Food, but lacking in atmosphere!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The restaurant was very old and in need of some updating. The service was friendly and the menu had a good variety. The food was good but I have had more authentic. I'm sure it 's good for the area and the reviews brought me in but I was less than impressed. Good but not great.

“Great is a standard here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

My family and I eat here often as good food and service is a standard here every time. The quality of the food here is always great, it does not matter if there is 1 or 20 people in your party they always make sure you are well taken care do. They have the best Mexican food in the area. I recommend this restaurant if your having a meeting, birthday or just don't want to cook. They have a separate room for parties and will accommodate whatever you need for your event.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The food here is great, especially the taco salad & the fajita chicken, the only thing to avoid is the beef taco it can be bland. Always friendly staff and usually very quick to receive food.

“Great value and good tex/mex food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Good Tex/Mex food with a very extensive menue. Very reasonable prices, prompt friendly service. Not what you would expect to find in the mountains of Virginia and well worth the stop.
