Outstanding fajitas. Great nachos. Sometimes I get one of the combination plates. Their Tex-mex is very good.

Went here on our first night in Amarillo (husband there on business), as soon as we pulled into town, because of the excellent reviews. It was about 35 minutes before closing time, but there were plenty of cars there and we could see at least 4 tables of diners thru the windows. When we walked in, a man met us... More

The food was authentic and delicious. The wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! The place was packed for a Monday night and the service was fast. If you are in town check it out!! The Carne Asada tacos were simply delicious!

This place is well worth every dime you'll spend there! We had the Parridilla with camarones de diablo, adobadas and beef fajitas. I usually get quail, but today we tried the adobadas and OMG I didn't know what I was missing. It melts in your mouth, absolutely outstanding! The entire meal was delicious and we had plenty leftover to take... More

I'm in the area sightseeing and wanted Mexican, and this was the top rated on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. The service was excellent...these folks never pause for air! The carne asada I ordered was slow cooked, yummy perfection. I'd highly recommend and sad I won't get a chance to go again.

Nice family restaurant. Service was fast and friendly. They have a nice lunch menu. Grilled chicken tacos were wonderful, big chunks of well seasoned meat. Flautas were also good. We forgot to ask for the charro beans, so we got the refried beans by default. They were good, but we heard the charros are even better. Excellent chips, thin and... More

We all had different plates but common that all was great. Good flavor. The Charo beans are tasty and spicy. This is a small restaurant but family touch.

Went to the sw 6th location but can't find that on trip advisor. But this has the same menu so obviously a chain. My husband and I met my brother here for dinner. Beer was ice cold and cheap $3-4 /each depending on selection. Salsa and chips good. Queso average. They have daily specials and we were there on a... More
