Some of the best mexican style food I have had. Loved the bean dip and the salsa bar for chips and my meal was fantastic. Will be eating here again next time in town.

Decent food, huge proportions. Average drinks. Come with an appetite or plan to split with someone, we left a lot of food. The salsa bar is good, wish the salsas were labeled so you knew what you were getting.

The avocado salsa from the salsa bar was the bomb, and the burrito was stuffed full of chicken. I love it when the kitchen doesn't skimp on the meat! Good prices too. I'd definitely eat there again.

Food is phenomenal! The bean dip that you get with the chips is great, and the portions are so worth the money! My favorite mexican restaurant in Asheville!!
