Highly recommend the Chicken Chimichanga. Chicken is nicely spiced and queso sauce is terrific! Lots of other good dishes as well.

In all small towns in the south, there is a Mexican restaurant, gas station, and hotel. While there are multiple Mexican restaurants in Americus, this is one of the better ones. The menu is as expected and costs are comparable to any other Mexican food....More
