Chips and salsa were delicious...as usual. The salsa had right amount of heat and a hint of sweetness. We tried the beef fajitas, a cheese papusa and guacamole appetizer as an entree. The beef was grilled perfectly and more tender than any I've had in...More

Love this place. Great tequila selection, fast, friendly service and good margaritas. Different flavor any other Mexican restaurant. Probably most authentic.

This is probably the best Mexican food in Lafayette. Their pupusas, burritos, and homemade hot sauces are so good.

Had mixed fajitas. Chicken, beef and shrimp. They were average tex-mex at best. Also margaritas were ok at best. Did fill an empty stomach. I doubt if I'll be a return customer.

It was cold outside and I was in the mood for soup, so I tried the Chicken Tortilla Soup. It was delicious with a rich broth and large chunks of vegetables. Because it only comes in one medium sized bowl, I ordered the beef tongue...More

I saw some reviews prior to eating here, declaring this the best Mexican restaurant in Lafayette, LA. I had high expectations, and they were met. The prices are lower and the quality better than the chain Mexican places that we have.
