This is the Best Mexican Restaurant in Anderson. Hands Down! This is located at Anderson Station. Some nights the bar has Karaoke. The best salsa bar around. Fresh and clean.

Its been a couple of years since I had been here, and finally returned at my wife's request. We each got fajitas and they were delicious! Hot and sizzling, the meat was tender, with plenty of veggies. Good service, they now offer bean dip and a salsa bar, like most places are going with now. All in all, I would... More

We were in the area when my wife and I decided to stop by for lunch. I had the Taco Loco and she had the Tostatas Tapatia. The Taco Loco had a wonderfully flaky shell. Very good. We had the Guacamole Dip as an appetizer. (Not to be confused with the table-side guacamole.) The dip was terrific and we both... More

Great Mexican, Fast service and Good salsa/chips. Menu is very inclusive, and priced right. Always get "Texas" Margaritas, they are not as sour. You pay a little more but well worth it. BIG note, you can use your "Anderson Independent Mail" 10 % discount and it includes alcohol.

Felt like the server wanted us to eat and leave he was rushing everything so we felt rushed. Food was not seasoned well at all I had chicken steak and shrimp fajitas and it was horrible. Will not be returning!

Best Mexican food in Anderson, I love Sangria Margarita and Blackened Tilapia. Is not a typical mexican restaurant, you can see the difference in quality food and atmosphere.

Used to be much better. Service is above average. Prices are fair for the quality of food. In the past I've noticed a lot of Flys flying around. Not sure why. To me that exudes a dirty restaurant. Last time I visited there were no Flys. I'll stick with making homemade enchiladas and tacos from now on.

We went for lunch and everything was as average as can be. Not to say that's a bad thing, people expect cheap and quick Mexicanish food in these restaurants is about all the same. Go into almost any of these types of restaurants and you'll find the same lunch items, same dinner items, and a couple specials that are either... More
