Friendly service, really good food, very reasonable prices. I had burritos with steak tips, beans, guac salad. My wife had the shrimp chimichanga. We both enjoyed our selections a lot. Nicely prepared and seasoned, ample portions. We will stop here again.

I ate there recently by myself. I was seated promptly and the waitress was friendly enough offering menu suggestions; however the food was average at best. I got the shrimp chimichanga. It was simply “ok.” The chips and salsa were not the best I’ve had.

Typical Mexican restaurant decor and friendly staff. Food was very good and served quickly, which is important when you are traveling. Lots of menu options. Would definitely go there again when passing through Columbia!
