Great authentic Mexican food, always a crowd there, only had to wait 10 minutes for a table though. Waiters on their toes, great eating experience, not stingy withe the alcohol either..

We were greeted with a warm inviting smile as we entered. Even though the restaurant was full we were seated promptly & our waiter was very entertaining & attentive all dinner! The menu provided quite the selection. We shared 3 different entrees & all were served hot & very delicious! Of course they knew how to mix very tasty margaritas!... More

The restaurant is clean and the staff are very friendly. The food was average and needs more flavor. Prices are about average for a Mexican restaurant. My wife had tacos and they were well prepared and generously loaded with chicken. I had a taco salad that was also generously loaded with ingredients. The salsa was very good.

Wonderful authentic food and hospitality! The cheese cake borrido on the dessert menu is delicious! The freshly made refried beans are superior of any other Mexican restaurant, it took me back to my visit to Baja, Mexico.

We called ahead on a rainy, miserable day for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed everything. A huge variery, good serving sizes, and good flavor. The prices were very reasonable and our to go meals made us all want to go back for dinner there.

Quick and tasty Mexican food. We go every year when we're in the Outer Banks. I got the chicken fajitas at $13.95 that were very good.its a lot of food for the $. Service was good, but the place could use a makeover. In spite of the wobbly booth we were seated at, I wouldn't hesitate to go again.

I wanted to get some chips and salsa and I remembered seeing this place on the bypass road. We got there early for dinner so the place was pretty empty. Our chips and salsa came out right away and our server was very pleasant. He took our drink orders and dinner requests. The Margarita's were good but could have used... More

Decided to go here, don't like seafood and didn't want Pizza or burgers. Very glad we did. It was good food at good prices with good quick friendly service. Might just go back for another night on our honeymoon.
