We thought we would try this place out mainly to check out the train memorabilia. As we enter, we are seated by a friendly hostess who brings us chips and salsa, as well as something to drink. We look at the menus, but my mind is still wandering all over the restaurant checking out the train stuff. Eventually, I ordered.... More

Stopped in for dinner while visiting family in McHenry. I'm pretty picky about Mexican food after living in Texas for a long time. This food was just as good as anything I've had in Dallas. I had the steak quesadilla on a whole wheat tortilla. It was huge and flavorful. Ordered a side of guacamole which I thought could have... More

Every time we are in McHenry, we eat here. I tried the stuffed crab dish this time and except for the filling which was too doughy for my tastes, overall it was excellent. Look of the margarita specials.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in mchenry,it never disappoints. The skirt steak dinner is delish. The snapper is wonderful,and the Margaritas are the best in town. It's just a little hole in the wall place with really good food and good service.

We were a party of three and stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. We all ordered one of the Saturday lunch specials which was a small burrito, a taco and a tamale served with rice and beans. Service was quick and the food was fresh and quite good. A little Mexican background music would of been nice. We definitely... More

We are frequent patrons and always get the same order. Nachos with peppers and their great margaritas. The salsa is always fantastic, the service always welcoming.

Not only is the food excellent, but the portions are huge!!! I've only ordered breakfast but Yum! The biscuits and gravy are great, but the pancakes are the big winner!
