I always order the Cheese Enchilada and Carne Guisada (weekday lunch special #39) with beans and tortillas; A consistently very good option. Their Sunday shrimp soup is a pretty good choice as well.

my daughter and I love to share an order of the super nachos when we visit. Last visit my husband ordered the grilled pork chop, and oh it smelled so good I made him give me a taste. Not only was the chop tender, it was delicious! I'll get it next time. :)

I think the highlight of this restaurant is the wait staff. Our waiter and all other employees were pleasant and thanked us in a positive way for our business. I was very impressed with all of them. As far as the food goes, it was satisfactory but not great. I had two chicken enchiladas with beans and rice. My wife... More

Nothing Tex Mex or central or south American... Strictly north America-mexico. Good, genuine Mexican food with a welcoming environment for family dining and small town appeal

We walked over from the hotel next door. Wow! It was really good and fresh. The guacamole was wonderful as was the queso. Salsa and chips were spot on. Everyone ordered something different and we were all very pleased. Portions are large, we went home with lots of leftovers. The mango margaritas were the bomb. We will definitely go back.

Ate dinner here with kids while staying next door at Holiday Inn Express. Food was served hot and tasted good. Had enchiladas, tacos, and tamales. Charro beans were very good. Service was friendly. Was recommended by hotel staff as best in town. Agree with them!!

We've been putting off going here, thinking it was just another Tex-Mex (of which there are many in this area). The room itself is pleasant, with a singer who turned out to be quite good. The first inkling we had that this was better than most was the red salsa with the chips: dark red, and with a spice that... More
