We've been eating at this restaurant for years, and the food is always delicious! The avocado enchiladas are one of my favorites.

Had lunch there recently and it was as usual, excellent. Brena and the other waitresses take good care of you and the food is top notch. It is reasonably priced and always hot when it comes out. Great place to eat lunch even if it is a little off the beaten path.

We stopped it and the place had a few tables of folks having lunch. Our waitress seated us and got our drink order. We had the special... More

The food was mediocre and the portions were small for the price. The food was not the worst I've had, just nothing special. The service, on the other hand, was horrible! I will never eat here again!

as others have pointed out, yes, the food for the most part outdoes other mexican places in sweetwater, but it does take a long time to get your food/ small place, so it is rather crowded and loud in there/ not a place to go for lunch/ there's not enough time, unless you call ahead/ the only complaint i guess...

This isn't a fancy restaurant. My rating is based on what it intends to be which is good, authentic Mexican food. The price was comparable to taco time here in Canada, the service was fast and we found it friendly. Too much to finish and all of it was very good and fresh. I tipped 25% based on the service....

Chips were very good. Had the beef taco, avocado enchiladas with rice and beans. All were outstanding. The salso had reasonable heat and was very tasty. The dinner sauces had... More
