We eat here about once a week. They are typically fast and the food is great. Good salsa and earn chips. My big complaint is they allow smoking in the back dining room and they don't have good vents so it comes into the main room. I thought York county was suppose to be smoke free!!!! I always try to...

Some of the best Mexican we've had in the greater Charlotte area. Worth the trip to Clover and surprisingly good for such a small town
