This place has great food and really good service too. The taco salad was great and the fried ice cream was very good too. Will definitely go there again.

We arrived after 8:00 pm with a very large group. Sitting was immediate and there were six servers assigned to our group. Drinks were kept filled, orders were delivered promptly and without any confusion as to who ordered what. I don't drink but heard the margaritas were excellent, heard no complaints about the food and no plates were sent back.... More

We were traveling home from Florida and stopped in Hopkinsville, KY. We had decided we would like Mexican food for dinner. So glad we found this restaurant. The salsa and chips were delicious. The verde sauce on my enchiladas had a little kick to it, which was a very pleasant surprise. The Preferred Margarita was huge and mixed to perfection!... More

Ate here the other night after checking in to the hotel just behind the restaurant. Ordered a pick your own Mexican plate meal. Before the meal came received the chips and salsa. The chips seemed to be store bought and the salsa was very bland. The meal came and everything was way over salted and very greasy. Definitely needed to... More

Has Average Mexican food in U.S.=Gross. I ordered two Chili Rellanos. They were humongous!! And completely disgusting. See pic. They were soaked in oil. The peppers were bitter and the cheese was completely flavorless. We had to flag the server down to order, get more drinks, and pay our check. The table side guacamole was great for me, but my...
