“Charleston's most authentic restuaruant”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Usually busy and deserves to be. This well-run restaurant offers very good food at incredibly low prices. Many choices on the menu, with several well-considered house specialties. Service is quite good: attentive and considerate. Food comes in considerable portions and most dinners cost less than $10 with a drink. Most importantly, people are relaxing and enjoying themselves as they eat. You won't beat this deal...even at some chain's drive-thru.

“Descent Mexican / Always a Good Price !”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is a typical Mexican Place, Its o.k., it not as good as Rio in Nitro. The service was not that great, we had to keep asking for silver ware, drink refills etc... Staff was o.k., but not great.
We had the cheese dip, Chicken Fjata's and casade'as. Took awhile to get to us, but was really good when it did. Hot and fresh. Price was o.k. Atmosphere nothing to brag about.

“Good food and family environment”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Like the other reviews. Just a typical mex restaurant that you will find in a lot of towns.

If you are staying it is a good place to eat.

“Typical Mexican Food”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Good, but typical Mexican food. Just be careful about using a debit card. I have had friends who have had issues with their debit cards being over-charged here.
