Best flavor in Berea. Very good salsa. Service is okay depending on your server. But overall very good place to eat close to home

When I have time or my friends want to walk up the hill to get food we usually stop here. Its a really chill environment and the food is very good. The employees are really nice and sweet to talk to.

Have always found the food to be tasty, and hot, no matter what I order.. It is always clean, service is quick and respectful. Last item we ordered was their rib eye steak, very tender and good proportion

Went here for lunch with my oldest son and youngest son last Saturday. This place is cheap looking - bordering on tacky. Obviously the place was hastily thrown together with very little imagination and very little expense. Service was prompt as there were only 3 other people in the place. Food was your typical American-Mexican fare. Plates, silverware and napkins... More
