My wife and I have frequented this Latino owned and operated restaurant that sits next to a railroad track in the heart of Bartlett. The enchiladas rancheras, taco salads, burritos, and combination plates never fail to please. The service is pleasant and courteous. The electric train that encircles the inside of the eatery adds a bit of interest. Wanna practice... More

Starting with chips and salsa tells you everything about a Mexican restaurant. And this was mediocre. The beef chimichanga was chewy so it was left on the plate I mean the meat half chewed. The service was nothing to write home about. So it was a first and last for us. The manager might have saved it if he would... More

Group of 8 ate here and food was just ok and service was not so good. Most of us ordered a "taco plate" which allowed you to pick 2 or 3 tacos including shrimp, pork and all the usual. Fish tacos were flavorless, 10 year old got burritos and only ate the tortilla and cheese sauce because the meat had... More

Food was fair. Decor was a Mexican theme, but didn't feel authentic. Food didn't have that wow factor that good Mexican food offers. Too homogenized and I would not go again.

One of my friends go there at least once a month. The food is always consistent, and the white cheese dip is to die for. Great prices and specials always.

This is a consistently good restaurant; both food and service. Nice quiet atmosphere. A typical Tex Mex menu. Not the first choice if you are looking for more authentic Mexican, but we happen to prefer Tex Mex fare.

The food is tasty and well priced. I would like for the salsa to have more bite but my wife likes it just the way it is. This is a good place for lunch. I would prefer a more upscale Mexican Restaurant for dinner however. The menu is a bit limited.

Horrible service. We were one of two families in restaurant and still took about two hours. Food was not good and restaurant appeared dirty.
