Not only is the food excellent, but the price is right, the nacho chips and salsa are delicious and generous, and the people there are so nice! I have visited about 20 times and never had a bad experience. Fish tacos on Fridays are the best. On cold, rainy days you'll find me here, warming up with a big, piping... More

1st visit here and I asked our server for a recommendation on food that was more authentic than the usual "Americanized" combo platters. She suggested the Mexican tacos with fried pork (carnitas). Absolutely delicious, very authentic, and only $2.10 each! My lovely date had the Burrito Supreme which she said was very good. The guacamole is also delicious! My only... More

Great service and turnaround for a lunch meeting. Lunch menu has great variety. Quick, hot service. Chunky guacamole was amazing. Fish tacos delicious but need the guacamole on the side. Will definitely go back on my next trip.

This is my "go to" Mexican restaurant in Athens, Ga. They have been an excellent choice for 15 years. They are always willing to make a dish suit you, and the food is always hot and tasty.

Everyone who works here seems cheerful and when you try the food, you know why. The margaritas are great and the chunky avocado dip could be a meal in itself. We are usually a mixed bunch: two senior citizens, our daughter, her boyfriend & her son. My daughter is vegetarian & her son is a bit "hyper" and it doesn't... More

We were excited to try Mexican in our immediate neighborhood so went there for lunch. Everything was OK, but the salsa, for example, was just bland. I had a chile relleno and it was good, but again just didn't really pack a punch. The poblano itself was a tiny bit tough, and the queso inside was OK, but nothing to... More

Stopped by this Mexican restaurant on a chilly Friday night and it was bustling even at 7:30pm. After a short wait, our party was seated and immediately served fresh tortilla chips and salsa. My mojito was perfect. The menu is extensive with something for everyone, from combination plates to single street tacos. My tostada was just enough as I wasn't... More

This is our favorite place for Mexican food in town! We go there almost weekly and are very rarely disappointed. Combos, nachos, ceviche, tortilla soup, specials - all delicious. Also the margaritas are excellent and not a cheap watered down version.
