Don't let the outside fool you! The staff was friendly and the food was delicious! This is also one of the closest places that serves beer close to Mammoth Cave (dry counties abound!). I highly recommend if you are in the area.

Delicious mexican cuisine- everything at the table was good, from the fajitas to the steak ribeye fajita dish, quesadillas, and even kids meals. They even sang and delivered birthday dessert to the table (complete with whipped cream in the face) for our teenager. Recommended!

Large portions, reasonable prices, good food. I had the chiloquiles Cameron which was not what I thought it was going to be, but still good. Try the flan for dessert, it was excellent!
