This was a decent place for dinner, but I had hoped for something more authentic in Texas. We had chips, salsa and some guacamole, which was all right. Then our meals, which were average. I really wanted some flan, but they didn't have that, so I had a nice sopalilla, which tasted great...best thing I ate.

Consistantly good food. We love their steak fajitas, and the nachos, enchiladas, and flautas are also good. They have good charra beans. We don't care for the queso here, but everything else is good.

Their burritos have a special flavor about them, it just seems to enhance the topping. Hot chips and really cold beer

Good food, cold beer. We always clean our plate when we eat here. I especially like the House Special.

Chicken tacos were delicious! The margaritas were delightful! Our queso could have come out a little sooner than right before our food, but it was still good!

The food and service is good but the restaurant is old and a little dingy. It really needs sprucing up! This is a good place for a group because they have room to put tables together and are happy to do so.

Very reasonably priced, good flavor Mexican food. Service is good at first, but sometimes a bit slow to refil your glass or bring your check. We were there for Mom's birthday, and a group of employees came out and sang Happy Birthday to her first in English, then in Spanish, which she enjoyed very much. It is at a good... More

Passing through Waco on the way to San Marcos, we were looking for some good Mexican food. This place did not disappoint us. Don't miss out, very good food, great chips and hot sauce. Needs some updating though.

I appreciated being able to order just one taco Rico from the menu. The food may have been under a warmer a little long as it was very hot but also a little dry. The service was excellent. I would not recommend the pralines.
