Dropped by for a late lunch, the place was empty. Decided to try it anyway. The food was good, not great. I felt rushed though, like they waned us out so they could clean or what ever it is that they do.

I often search out Mexican restaurants for lunch when traveling, because of the speed and my love of the food. This time, I picked a less than stellar place to enjoy my chicken fajitas which was mediocre. Their spicy salsa was over-salted; looked and tasted like it was made weeks ago. The seating area is okay but overall, it was... More

Had supper with my son. Food was good, especially the salsa and cheese dip. Service was about par, but I will say our waitress had several tables and was working hard to keep up. Was a little pricey, but not over the top expensive.

Typical Mexican restaurant. Good beer, all Mexican beer of course. Good fajitas, chips and salsas. Margaritas looked good and are really big.

I really felt like I wasn't welcomed like others that came in, my waitress was un-attentive and the manager didn't ask how was the food. Definitely felt out of place, will not be back.

Eaten there a lot of times and always had good food. The service is good as well. It's a popular eatery for both lunch and diner. I would recommend my favorite, the delicious Texas Mexicana Fajitas. I can't hardly finish it. Need to get extra fajitas, though! The prices are decent and the value is good...Sometimes you get a wait... More

When I entered, I suddenly had high hopes as all the customers appeared to be Hispanic, but reality soon crushed the hopes. The menu is very good extensive, but my taco and burrito were like every other mediocre Mexican restaurant thet I've ever eaten in. Ground beef, white cheese, red sauce, blaah! Think of Chinese takeout and you get the... More

Over the years, we have eaten here at least two dozen times, but not for the last few years. It used to be very good. We returned recently and were totally disappointed. The taco salad was in a shell that was stale. The chile rellenos were overcooked and mushy. The burritos were dry inside. Nothing was delicious or nicely done.... More

First let me say that the waitress was nice and margaritas and chips were ok. It was all downhill from there. Our son described the ground beef perfectly as school cafeteria taco meat. Everything was greasy and mediocre. When our 5 year old won't eat the cheese quesadilla you know something's amiss. Though our 13 year old daughter who normally... More

My girlfriend and I dined here twice on our recent camping trip to Kerr Lake. The first time was so good we had to go back again. I am a professionally trained chef and having worked with many Mexicans in the industry, I've grown very fond of their cuisine. Not Mexican food as most Americans know it, but REAL Mexican... More
