Service is always great, food tastes amazing, and actual Mexican plates. But their prices have went up and the portions are smaller. Worst of all no more free refills on Horchata, which is what I mainly go for. Other than that its a great place for parties, and everything else.

If you like to order the Speedy Gonsolase lunch special or the number 5 combination plate you will love this place. For what they do they do a great job. The service is consistently prompt and friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Our favorite Sunday (& sometimes midweek) place to eat & relax. The managers & waitstaff are always nice. We have never had a problem with anything we have ordered. You can print coupons on line or they come in the local newspaper. We will continue to eat here.

Went with the family for lunch. Everybody got the Speedy Gonzalez lunch special (taco, enchilada, rice). They made them with chicken for us (rather than beef) - which was nice. We also got a child's plate: cheese quesadilla & rice). The free basket of chips and salsa was very good. We asked for an extra salsa, a mild one, and... More

I have discovered a favorite Mexican dish that is also good for dieting...Loco Taco. Chicken, beans, lettuce, (I asked for tomatoes), in a shell with melted nacho cheese. I also paid for side of pico but it was worth the price with fresh chopped cilantro. My husband had enchiladas and said they were great. His "salad" however was just lettuce... More

Me and my husband eat here frequently. One of our favorites for Mexican food. Service is always good and so is the food. Not a bad price either!

They have multiple locations in NC, but this one is tied with the one in Roxboro for service and quality and service. However, the staff tells me that this has become the favorite in their chain
