The food was great! No one of our group of six had any complaints. The young man who waited on us seemed new maybe? He forgot a soda through 75% of our dinner. There is no alcohol served, although you can BYOB but we did...More

I'm a Gettysburg local, and this is one of the two restaurants that I patronize in town. It's awesome. The staff are friendly, and they always remember me and my wife each time we visit. Most importantly, the food is awesome. If you've ever been...More

Locals and tourists do not waste your time. I had been before and the service was lacking. But decided to try one more time. It took 1/2 hour to get drinks. For a party of 4 it took literally 2 hours before our orders arrived....More

We were hungry, we were near, so we decided "why not?" Friendly staff, patio seating, tasty salsa. BYOB only, so know that going in. Food is predictable but good. Good stop for reasonably priced lunch or light dinner.

Had lunch here for the first time when our first choice had an hour long wait. We made a good choice - we were seated immediately. The quality of the food was good, portion size was about average. Our server was friendly and accommodating and...More

If you're looking for really tasty mexican food, this is a great place. Carnitas (pulled pork) was the special and it was some of the best we've had (and we've had it at a lot of places). The seafood chimichanga, on the regular menu, was...More
