Their food is absolutely the best!! I love it! They are so nice! I love their fried jalapeños. I love the authenticity. The place always smells super clean and looks nice. Their food blows me away every time.

We eat here just about every time we come to town. Always tasty and always friendly service. My favorite is the macho burrito. Mom loves the street tacos.

This place is small and quaint but makes up for it with great flavorful Mexican food and the service is wonderful. The prices, I found were reasonable. I would definitely recommend this.

There are not many dining choices in Montpelier but this place is great. We had good fast service, the portions are large and the food is good. Had the chili verde and a chicken burrito. I would not hesitate to go back.

The service was good, the food exactly as expected and the drinks reasonably priced. Its not a culinary experience , rather somewhere to sit down and have a relaxed chat over a meal. Portions distinctly American sized so you need to be hungry!

They serve Mexican cuisine and rumored to have the best hamburgers in town! Small, but very friendly and people willing to share tables, it was soo fun!

Montpelier isn't known for its cultural eating experience. This place was recommended by one of the locals. The food was good. I would eat here again as I prefer this over any fast food option.
