I had a carry-out dinner, and waited more than 45 minutes for them to make combination plate of one tace, one enchilada, and beans and rice. Yes, it was a busy Friday night. But really - 45 minutes??? No apology, no reason for the delay. The attitude was highly impersonal, and as I watched dozens of people seated after I... More

We had the Pollo aculpoca, flattened chicken breast, with 6 giant grilled shrimp, onions, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, all in a delicious cheese sauce. Service was excellent, very clean place. I will return.

I would have given 5 stars but the price vs amount of food you are given isn't great. I had to ask for extras a few times and after we received our food the waitress disappeared. All of these semi small issues as the food was hot, we didn't have a long wait, and it tasted great. I would return... More

Guided by Trip Advisor, I found and enjoyed this place a lot. Had a shrimp entree with rice and avocado salad. Tasty. Extremely good value for the money. I never would have seen it otherwise. It's in a small strip mall just beyond a big Amish buffet place.

It was hard to believe there was a Mexican restaurant in the small Amish farming town of Arthur, IL yet it's there and located just off the highway running through town. We ate there three times over the long weekend (in the evening your restaurant choices are this and Subway) but were never disappointed. The food was fresh, delicious and... More

The food is good and the service quick. They also have a large room that can accommodate large groups of at least 50 with a reservation.

Not many Mexican restaurants in Amish Country. This one had very good food and a very friendly and helpful staff. Colorful and delightful atmosphere.

Pleasant spot to have some good Mexican food. A real variety on the menu and reasonably priced. Enjoy!

We used to visit here frequently. The food is good but the service has gone downhill. The reason we stopped going is because we had to question our bill every time. There were always 1 or 2 small extra charges on our bill that was for something that we didn't order. Every time. We won't go there anymore because of... More

My husband and I have been here several times by ourselves and with friends. We've never been disappointed. My husband isn't a big fan of Mexican food but loves the chips and usually gets a plate of basic nachos which he likes. I've tried several menu choices and like all of the ones I've tried so I can't really say... More
