While in Sabetha (and Hiawatha), this was the spot that everybody recommended. During my time at each town, I think we visited this place three times. Yeah, it's just that bueno.

Awesome food and great service. We eat here at least once a week and have never had a bad meal. It's the best Mexican food place in the whole country.

I've eaten here several times with family, it doesn't dissappoint! Best Mexican food around these parts and they make a good margarita too!

This place has the best food. The chips are fresh and hot and the salsa is terrific. The service is super fast and the wait staff is excellent. My favorite dish to get here is the fajita taco salad. The menu has a ton of variety--there is something for everyone!!

I can't say that this is the BEST Mexican food I've ever had, but it was decent for Kansas. The service was very prompt and the lunch (enchiladas, etc.) were decent. I would return on my next visit just to get some of the chips and a margarita.
