Love coming here any time, any day! It is always fresh, hot, and quick. Friendly service in a nice atmosphere with great prices for the tons of fresh food you get. I have come in as a couple, with friends, even have meetings here. Physically addicted to the Spinach Quesadillas which can be ordered on the vegetarian menu, to die, or by themselves. Comfy place to go for any meal and a great happy hour.

We came across this restaurant while staying at a nearby hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly and prompt, the food more than ample and delicious, and the drinks incredibly inexpensive. $1.99 bought the best Margarita my wife ever had.

We were just staying overnight in Jacksonville, it was late, and we were hungry. Someone in the elevator of our hotel was carrying in Chinese takeout and we commented on the aroma. He said the restaurant was just around the corner, but there was also a Mexican restaurant right there. We found it, and got there -- in a strip mall with three or four other restaurants -- about an hour before closing. We really had pretty low expectations, but we were totally surprised. Even the salsa served with the chips was outstanding. Hotter and much tastier than most. The food was excellent, tasty, fairly priced. I'm not a Mexican food expert, so I can't say much about authenticity, but it had much more distinctive flavors than most Mexican food I've had. Service was great. We would definitely go back again.

It is located in a Mall and certainly not fancy. The food was good, rather bland for Mexican. Everything could have used more spice. You do not get a glass with a bottle of beer. Service was good and everything looked clean. Lots of food for the price.

There are a lot of Mexican / Tex-Mex places to eat in and around Jacksonville. This one should be at the top of the list. The food is great, the staff is friendly and attentive and you certainly can't beat the price for what you get. It is located very near St. Vincent's Hospital and may not be as convenient as others on Southside/Tinseltown area, but it is certainly worth the extra 5 minutes to get there.

I particularly like the way they serve the salsa in a decanter with enough that you don't have to ask for more before the chips are gone.

Yes, go here, it's worth it
