This cozy restaurant is a great place to hang out with friends and also has a nice outdoor covered deck. The food is good, but has been inconsistent over several visits.

My husband and I frequent this restaurant because the food is great. They have a wide selection on the menu and most anyone can get something they enjoy. The staff is friendly and prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We were pleasantly surprised at how flavor-filled each dish was. I wasn't expecting this restaurant to outshine other Tex-Mex places I had visited, but it did! Pleasant staff, too!

Best Mexican food in Madison County. Food is seasoned well and is always fresh. I frequently dine here and my favorite dish are the chicken fajitas. The retried beans are lumpy and not pureed. Everything is just delicious.

I have visited this restaurant off and on for over 10 years and not much has changed. It's a great choice for Berea College students nearby. The food has always been good but sometimes it's a little less than clean. My last visit the menu...More
