This place is always consistent with service, speed and quality of food not to mention the Marqaritas.

Went for lunch and they had mediocre food. I ordered the cheese dip to start off with, not knowing there were two different sizes. The server of course didn't ask and gave me the large one for $6.99 which I wasn't able to eat all of. It was decently priced, with excellent sweet tea!

We have been here several times with all of our children as well as extended family. Food is quickly prepared and enjoyable price point is excellent as well. It is quite near our residence so we go there and we need a quick bite of Mexican food. It does get a little drafty by the rollup doors at the front... More

Food and drinks are great and fairly affordable! Family friend and great for kids. This is an awesome summer location as they open... More

This place stays packed, but they are worth a little wait. Too many restaurants over think their food, not these folks. This is just really good Mexican food at a great price served on a large plate. Do yourself a favor and read their menu on line before going. It will help you when it comes to choosing something off... More

We eat here a lot! The service is very fast, the people are friendly, and we have enjoyed everything on the menu. Our favorite are the authentic tacos (specifically the Asada).

Had valentines lunch here after a hiatus and so glad to be back. The only reason I wouldn't go here is that it's so popular and I don't like to wait. Anyway it was my first time here for lunch and I tried the chicken soup- OMG! So good. It come in a huge bowl (seriously enough for two servings... More

This is a great Mexican restaurant. They have warm chips and 3 different types of salsa which I think is great. The food and definitely better than average and the service is very attentive. It's a popular place for dinner. The ambiance is very nice too. I recommend this place as the best Mexican restaurant in Huntersville.

This place was great. Very friendly staff. The place itself was clean and well taken care of. The food was cooked to our request and was hot when it arrived at our table. Cold beer and a wonderful margaritas!
