A small, off to the side Mexican restaurant that, IMO, is better than any other mexican restaurant in the Burlington/Graham area....and cheaper in price too. The food is very good and the wait staff is very friendly and personable. Depending on the crowd the food may take a tad longer to get to you, but it is served hot and... More

Don't let this be a drive by. Hiding on the end of the old hotel building is an excellent little spot for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!

Mainly Mexican dishes but burgers and chicken strips are good salsa and chips start out and menu items have all been good. We eat there weekly and never have to wait. Walk in and take a... More

Being close to our Church, we eat here 3-4 times per month. The food is great and the staff is friendly. Our family of five can eat more (and better) for less than it costs to go fast food.
