First time at this restaurant was a pleasant experience. We had the cheese dip with the free salsa and chips. All were very good. My wife had a shrimp quesadilla and I had the El Jalisco special dinner. Both were very good. One water and one ice tea and the bill was just $24 before tip. Food as mentioned was very good. Service was good.

GREAT service! The waiters and waitresses were very kind, which made the food that much more enjoyable. One of the waiters, Juan, makes the Flan himself and it is to DIE for!

Gringos, do NOT waste your pesos in this wannabe mexican restaurant!!
This was by far the worst, what should have been mexican food I have ever had!
Actually, it had very little to do with anything mexican! Chicken quesadilla and beef quesadilla filling tasted like some slab out of a can from a horror movie!
Guacamole was most likely some cheap out of a bag product, which like everything else had no taste whatsoever!
Watch the guy on the register, since you won't get an itemized bill (very iffy)!!!!

This restaurant was awful. My meal was ok (chicken and vegetables) but my husband’s meal was inedible. He got the taco, enchilada and chile relleno plate and it was disgusting. The chile relleno was a piece of a chile over gray meat stuff. The same green meat stuff (which we believe to be some sort of hamburger) was in everything. Was surprised that the place was full at lunch with this kind of food. We are moving to the area and come from an area that has excellent Mexican food and so we were hoping we could find the same in the Greenville area. We will just keep looking!
