My granddaughter and I loved this restaurant. We liked it so much we ate there twice in one day. Staff courteous and great variety and attractive, clean place to eat great Mexican food. Don't miss the bean dip and we thought the fajitas gumbo was amazing. Look forward to going back.

The owners always greet you by name if they know you. Chat a few minutes with you while you enjoy some fantastic food and the BEST margaritas in Tuscaloosa...hands down! Price is good as well.
