We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. It was awful. We were a table of 2 and neither liked the salsa or our entrees. We will not be back here.

Friendly people on a Friday afternoon, but food was not tasty. We wouldn't go back, nachos are a joke.

Wow, the Pechuga Alfonzo and the Pechuga Chihuahua were amazing. Great service and a nice venue made our lunch perfect. After your Waco tour make sure you visit this charming restaurant right next to the Spice Village. Can’t wait to come back.

Great menu, good service, but food quality and flavor didn't match up. Crawfish quesadillas recommended; bbq brisket enchiladas NOT.

This place came highly recommended, however I’m not sure why. The food was not very good and service was slow. We finally got our bill but had to run our waiter down to give him our money so we could leave.

Outstanding Mexican restaurant! Friendly staff and excellent margaritas!!!! Convenient location as it is close to the silos and the Magnolia Market!

Good margaritas. The Spider-Man drink was good. The food was decent. We had a good time. I wish I had reviewed my bill closer as I had been overcharged on the number of total drinks we had--my fault for not noticing and saying something.
