This place is basic, delicious, reliable and fun. The seating is old and sometimes questionable but the food is unfailingly good and very reasonable. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. A truly local family place.

While the decor is very utilitarian/cafe, the food is excellent and the staff are kind, happy, folks. If you care more about the quality of the food and friendly people than the amount spent on interior decorating, this is the Mexican restaurant for you!

I am always encouraged when I go into a Mexican restaurant and find that most of the patrons are Mexican. An added bonus was the table that was filled with the GA State Patrol. I was first drained to the free salsa bar that had many salsas, sour cream, guacamole and chips. I ordered enchiladas that were filled with sautéed... More

I've been there a couple of times. Very Mexican! Great tacos and fajitas. Typical entrees were very acceptable. Nothing fancy at all. My friends said the salsas are amazing. For me.... The guacamole. Fresh and natural! Tasty

A very unassuming corner market with a little family taqueria/restaurant inside. They have a chip bar, which looked good, and the food was authentic, cheap, and delicious. It is not anything fancy or a place you would go out for something special, but for a lunch on the go, or a quick grab and go meal, it can't be beat.

Best authentic Mexican food in South Georgia. Only drawback is that they don't serve beer or margaritas!

Truly authentic Mexican food. I had the twin chimichangas, one chicken and one beef. They were fantastic.
