WOW, best mexican meal ever! I had some gigantic burrito that was as big as my hubby's arm. He had flautas which were equally amazing. Service was super slow and most staff didn't speak english, but food was worth it. Probably won't ever be able to eat at any other mexican restaurant again.

If you're in Asheville you must give them a try. You're not going to find better food or service. I have eaten at plenty of different Mexican Restaurants, my wife and I drive 1 hour to eat here.

Food is fresh with large portions. A little slow on the service for late lunch but overall good Mexican and plenty to take home for lunch the next day.
