I love starting off with warm salty crispy chips and a bowl of salsa. The wait staff is great, the food is served scalding hot and they are not skimpy on the portions. I never have room for dessert. The only thing that irritates me is they don't give you sour cream with their awesome chicken quesadillas. It's a buck... More

Staff was friendly. They have free shots of booze when paying for meal. Usually a bottle left right at counter. The booze is usually tequila, and a extra free bonus. Staff was friendly. Food was very good and reasonably prices. gets very busy at weekday lunch and weekends.

If your looking for an affordable, authentic Mexican experience you have come to the right place. Service was quick and there was a large variety of menu items to chose from. The restaurant is brightly colored and welcoming. The staff was friendly and never rushed you. Our family will be back again.

I have been to this place several times for a large group lunch. The staff is very accommodating and friendly with a big group. The food is excellent!! The atmosphere is fun and perfect to enjoy great food and friends. I love the homemade chips and salsa they bring you before you order! The white cheese dip is yummy too!... More

My dad treated my wife and I to a lunch after we had just arrived from the airport. The staff was friendly. Despite how busy they were, we got seated immediately and had drinks, chips and salsa within 3 minutes. The food arrived quickly, it was very tasty and they were bigger portions than we expected for the price. Very... More

We stopped here for lunch while passing through Wausau. It was clean and cute inside. The complimentary chips and salsa were good. I ordered a chicken chimichanga off of the lunch menu. The food was brought out quickly and was very fresh. I could tell it hadn't been under the heat lamp like other places may do. The portion size... More
