Nice atmosphere and a decent margarita. Food was pretty good and they had a kids menu that included some Mexican favorites along with chicken strips or a hamburger. A safe stop for families traveling near Boone!

They have great food, competitive prices and decent service. I love that they have a patio. The guacamole is great as an appetizer!

This is close to home so we visit fairly often. The service is excellent and the food is very good. It's plentiful and generous in portions. Fast too . Great drinks and the sombrero bday serenade is fun.

Very good food. Service is good. One time I got something sub par, but it was still good. I love their chips and salsa. The chips are warm and crisp.
