We stayed next-door at the Lyons Inn and walked over to have supper. It’s always hard to know what to eat when you go to different Mexican restaurants. I always play it safe and get a quesadilla. I was very happy with my spinach n...cheese quesadilla which came with a helping of refried beans and rice (mushrooms were on the menu with it but I detest them). My husband asked for another jar of salsa and sour cream for his meal and he was charge for them. They did not offer more chips but he had plenty. Our waitress was super nice. A nice place to eat if you’re passing through or local!More

Predictable good mexi-fare, chips and salsa free for first basket- I recommend ordering the white queso to go with it!

Without a lot of options in Lyons, this place is a good find. I always get to go and it's usually pretty good and comes with chips and salsa. All the dishes I've tried are good - tacos and enchiladas mostly, sometimes the special item...for the day - but my favorite are the shredded beef quesadillas. They are around $8 for two, and I specifically ask for shredded beef instead of ground beef. It seems like they are never quite the same, which could be a strike against the place, but they are usually very good. If you're not a big eater, two quesadillas are good for two meals, especially with the chips and salsa. I always find the staff to be friendly, and though I don't dine in, I think it'd be a nice place to sit and eat as well.More

Our visit was on Saturday evening. There were six of us. The restaurant was mostly empty. Another restaurant in town was having its Grand Opening so many people were at that location. I had the #1. Taco and two enchiladas with beans, rice or both...I would rate the food as average. Service was good Atmosphere was good Food value was average.More

Good food, generous portions. I had the steak tacos. Lots of meat but nothing else no garnish what so ever. Just the meat on the soft corn tortilla. Woul have liked some tomatillo or salsa something. Did come with a small side of bean soup...that was very good. Will go again and try something else. Hubby had Rellenos and said they were ok but nothing really special.More

Been coming here for years as I'm in the area regularly. The food is good, portions generous. Nothing exceptional on the taste side, but I've always enjoyed my meal. Staff has always been friendly, although sometimes new and inexperienced.

Since my first visit, I have been back here twice. Neither visit left me with a good impression. The food quality was mediocre, service was not as good and with the most recent visit, a ceiling tile fell due to a roof leak and it...did not even phase the staff. In addition, our group was place at a large table that was placed in front of the emergency exist. Good thing there was no need to use it.More

Had to wait a little while for service but they were real busy. Food was hot and good service was good our beverage cups were never empty. We come here when we are in the area.

Came here for the first time today and enjoyed the tacos. The services was fast and friendly. The biggest negative is that they serve Pepsi products instead of Coke!!
