This restaurant has a patio which is great this time of year. Every one on our part had great food...vegetarian quesadilla, barbacoa burrito and grilled chicken tacos. The servers were friendly and the food delivered promptly. Priced well.

We walked from our hotel! Nicely decorated Mexican Restaurant. Good beer specials. Warm chips and salsa immediately delivered to our table. Large menu. The meals arrived quickly and were ample in size and tasty. Reasonably priced.

Clean, friendly service with excellent food. Acapulco steak lunch was especially tasty with smoky grilled onions. Great salsa and warm chips too.

This place transports me back to Texas... I love it! Good service, broad menu, great enchiladas, good chips, good salsa, draft beer. Most of the Mexican places in Cincinnati are imposters, this place will be a regular place for our family. Good kids menu too.
