This is probably one of the top Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at - we all just LOVED it - and I would have given it a 5 had the service been just a bit better. The server was just not that great...I even had to ask him if they offered desert. The food was so good that it really... More

Typical tex-mex fare, generous portions and reasonably priced. Worth a visit particularly when you have exhausted your budget at Jackson's top tier restaurants.

I hate to be negative since this is a family owned restaurant and our waiter was nothing but kind. It was nice and clean too. However, besides the chips and queso it just wasn't very good. Go to Merry Piglets instead.

This was marginal, at best. The taco salad had very little taste and the chicken had a strange texture. Refried beans weren't worth the calories. I love Mexican food and typically devour chips and salsa. After a few bites, I was done. Salsa was ok- good heat but no real flavor. Having lived in Texas and Arizona for several years,... More

This restaurant was fantastic! Took a second to get seated, but not too long. Service was good and quick. The food though, was outstanding. Best Mexican ever! Would love to go back if we ever return to WY!

My husband and I ate here in December 2016. In all fairness, he liked the restaurant quite a bit. He had the Carnitas Pollo and thought it was maybe not perfect, but was good food. He was happy with his portion size, he couldn't finish it. I'm just a picky eater so this is just my side of the story!... More

This restaurant is placed across the road from a hotel we stayed at. The reception was very good and the service was efficient. We enjoyed the Mexican food experience.

Being from Texas where there are tons of wonderful and different Mexican food restaurants, I'd say give it a try.
