My son and I stopped in for a quick lunch. I had TH Enchiladas suiza and he had a Chile relleno. Both were excellent. Unique spice flavors and fresh salsa. The rice was cooked perfectly The beans were tasty and nothing was over salted. Reasonably priced. Try it. .

With multiple Mexican food establishments in town, this is one of our favorites. They are a small cozy restaurant and have good service and great food. It seems to be one of the places the local Spanish families eat at. Lots of parking and easy to find in South Glenwood.

The food here is incredible. I got this shrimp wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese. The design is beautiful, the chairs and tables are all works of art.

Chips are sitting out uncovered stacked in baskets when you walk to the bathroom. Chips are not fresh and taste stale. Sauce and other dip is room temperature telling me that this is also not fresh. Went a time prior and spent almost 2 hours just so 3 of us could get our tacos. Slow service. So if you are... More

Good Mexican food, the portions are huge, the menu is extensive and the restaurant was very clean. Service was great. Don't be alarmed by the outside appearance of it, we pulled up to the strip mall where it's located and hesitated- go in anyway....We have tried several Mexican restaurants in Glenwood and so far this one has been the best....

Had a simple meal with the family, but nice touches on all the dishes- fajita quesadillas with well cooked steak and vegetables, queso fundido with tomatoes and beans in sauce, very tasty. Potato enchiladas. Server and most of the patrons primarily spanish speaking amongst themselves, which seems like a good sign in a mexican restaurant. All staff friendly and welcoming.... More
