“Ok food, ok drinks, bad service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

While camping at Mountain Lake Campground we decided to stop in for a late dinner one evening. Our waiter wasn't a bit friendly and was rushing us to order. It was about an hour before they closed and everyone was cleaning around us. This wouldn't bother me had we not had to smell all of the cleaning smells and have people sweeping around our table while trying to eat. This made us feel very rushed by all staff to hurry up, eat and get out. More than likely will not eat in this establishment again.

“Fast & Furious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We recently stopped here for dinner, and thoroughly enjoyed the food!

This is a very simple restaurant - styled with the Mexican theme. Nothing fancy here. But the service is fast & furious! Food is served very quickly - including nachos and salsa before the meal. We have been going to Mexico for many years, and so this was a nice reminder of the food we enjoy there and were missing. The meals we had were tasty, hot and plentiful. AND Thursdays to Sundays they have happy hour between 4-7!!!

“Cheap and delicious! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate here while vacationing on the Summersville lake. There aren't many restaurant options there but we are glad we found this place! The food was authentic Mexican food and it was all packed with flavor! I got the enchiladas Maria's with steak, grilled peppers and onions and they were very flavorful and filling. They also came with lettuce, tomato, and guacamole. For our appetizer we got the Chile con carne and it was delicious! Every table also comes with free chips and salsa. The atmosphere is just a very casual restaurant, don't expect anything fancy. But if you want some great food at a cheap price we definitely recommend!

“Mexican with atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Very strange pictures of Jesus on the wall with eyes that look through you creeped me out. Liked the food, but had to take it back to our room. Crowded in the evening. Did I mention the creepy - follow you around - pictures?!?!?

“BEST MEXICAN AROUND!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

This is the best Mexican food around Summersville. We are never disappointed when we go here and we go quite often. The staff is so friendly and the service speedy. The food is delicious and can't be beat! They also have the BEST sweet tea! I highly suggest you try it!
