My husband and I LOVE the Carlisle Pike El Rodeo near TJ Maxx! The owners of this restaurant are soooo dear, we just love them and always look forward to their warm greeting as they come to our table to check on us or check us out! The staff here are fast and sweet and the dishes are always tasty!... More

Fairly good Mexican food. Chicken taco salad was very good. Tacos fairly good. Chips and salsa were average. Prices cheap but what really sets them apart is the quick service. Took less than 5 minutes to get dinner for four and the place was half full.

It is a very unassuming atmosphere, the servers are very pleasant and accomodating, and the food is wonderful. It reminds me of the food in Cancun, very vibrant, somewhat spicy, and reasonably priced.

We have been here for both lunch & dinner over the years. The food has always been good. Not authentic Mexican...more towards the tex-mex, which is what most people in this area demand. We do return at least once every couple of months.

Our food was good however our waitress was terrible. She was not attentive at all. She never returned to our table to ask us if needed anything, etc. My husband stood up two different times to get someone's attention. The manager came to us both times. The only time the waitress returned was to give us the bill.

The food here was really good and hot! They have excellent salsa. I had burritos and my husband had enchilada supreme which is his favorite. The prices are very affordable

Basically, don't go here Central Pennsylvania. This is horrible Mexican food. I ordered chilaquiles and either they had sat around for a long time or they have no clue what they are doing. There were no tortilla chips in the dish, despite chilaquiles being a sauce poured over tortilla chips. Go to Harrisburg and go to Tres Hermanos do anything... More
