This is my "go to" Mexican restaurant in Athens, Ga. They have been an excellent choice for 15 years. They are always willing to make a dish suit you, and the food is always hot and tasty.

Everyone who works here seems cheerful and when you try the food, you know why. The margaritas are great and the chunky avocado dip could be a meal in itself. We are usually a mixed bunch: two senior citizens, our daughter, her boyfriend & her son. My daughter is vegetarian & her son is a bit "hyper" and it doesn't... More

We were excited to try Mexican in our immediate neighborhood so went there for lunch. Everything was OK, but the salsa, for example, was just bland. I had a chile relleno and it was good, but again just didn't really pack a punch. The poblano itself was a tiny bit tough, and the queso inside was OK, but nothing to... More

Stopped by this Mexican restaurant on a chilly Friday night and it was bustling even at 7:30pm. After a short wait, our party was seated and immediately served fresh tortilla chips and salsa. My mojito was perfect. The menu is extensive with something for everyone, from combination plates to single street tacos. My tostada was just enough as I wasn't... More

This is our favorite place for Mexican food in town! We go there almost weekly and are very rarely disappointed. Combos, nachos, ceviche, tortilla soup, specials - all delicious. Also the margaritas are excellent and not a cheap watered down version.

We visited this restaurant with a large group, so I decided to mark them up to 3 stars. The food wasn't too good, and the service was average at best. We probably won't return.
