This was the 2nd time we have eaten here in the past 13 months, On this visit to Jacksonville we came back even though we had to drive over ten miles to get here from our hotel, the portions are huge (we both took enough back to the hotel for another meal the next day). the Fajitas Texanos were wonderful and my wife's Chimichangas were also great. we'll be back again next visit.

Sure the building is old and faded and maybe dirty but certainly full of character! If you're a fan of the cookie cutter newish suburban look building, then this "shack" maybe not for you. However, if you're a fan of excellent Mexican food, then come on in and join the crowd :) All kidding aside, this has been my favorite local restaurant since I moved into the neighborhood back in 2002. Since then, there has been many changes mostly to the yearly staff change-over but also to the newly expanded bar area which was a long time coming in my opinion. On your next visit, try the Fajitas Nachos because I'm sure you won't regret it.

Found this restaurant on Yelp and it was exactly as represented. First, it's a local joint in a small strip mall. Dining is very casual in a large open and very basic space. It's not a place to take your spouse for a special dinner. But if you are looking for great food at a relatively inexpensive price and don't mind eating with the locals, this place is for you. Margaritas went down pretty well also.

I hope you like cheese because cheese is in every meal. The key is to see what else you get. But a good place to get very quick food (cheese).

Delicious authentic food, great atmosphere and inexpensive. Bonus, you can practice your Spanish as most of the wait staff is only moderately fluent in English.
