I ordered the Chimichangas, one beef and one chicken. The chicken had the textures of canned chicken and the beef looked and smelled like dog food. I love mexican, but this was awful.

We eat here about once a month. The food is great, service is good, and the portions are normally enough for two meals.

Mexican food here is great. Never had anything less than a super meal. Waiters and waitresses always friendly. Can get crowded sometimes with the locals coming in. Might be the best Mexican restaurant in the C'ville area (even though it's in Ruckersville). Guadalajara is comparable.

Excellent food, seasoning just right. Salsa on the hot side, yum! Very reasonable prices and you don't have to wait long before it shows up at the table.
