It has been awhile since I have been to the restaurant since I don't live as close as I used to. We used to have our campaign club dinners here and the food and service are great.

My son and his wife love hot spicy food. Us old timers like it a lot simpler. But there is plenty for every taste.

I love mexican food and love trying different mexican restaurants. I live in Blairsville and won't hesitate to drive the extra distance to come here because the food is more authentic and the service seems better. THey dont' charge for the cilantro and give good servings of guacamole. Give this a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Absolutely the worst mexican food I have ever had!! The service or lack there of is just HORRIBLE! The manager is VERY RUDE!! We ordered take-out when my grandfather was on hospice and they messed our order up, when I brought it back to be fixed the manager was rude and then they proceeded to screw our order up again....

This is the third time my wife and I have been to this little place over the past three years. We visit Hiawassee every year in October for a week and we stop in each time we are in town. This is a clean, well-kept little place with a great view of Lake Chatuge. The menu is quite extensive and... More

Overall reasonably priced menu compared to other Mexican restaurants in the area. Portions are a little smaller and you don't get as much cheese but you save money. Outdoor seating available with a nice view of Lake Chatuge.
