Small place but good food. The best nachos in town. Always one of our favorite places to eat. Family oriented, however, can not accommodate a large family or group. A little to crowded. The Vemillion has a separate bar area with TVs. Not a full bar, for beer drinkers only.

Can be hit or miss at times. Usually very good. Recommend the tacos. Chicken. Beef. Or even better the shrimp tacos are great. Nachos can be good at times. Great staff. Kids usually like the enchiladas

We went in for lunch - it was crowded. The food and service were great. The fajita chicken salad is quite tasty. We'll go back.

This is a great local spot. But also serves as a nice watering hole. We mainly eat here at lunch time. Only dined at dinner once. Get here early. Only down side is parking and the intersection it is located at is congested. Great place for a family or friends.

Tex Mex food does not get any better!!! Great fajitas, nachos, guacamole or chicken fried steak. The beer is varied and cold. The decoration is casual. Two environments: one more casual family style, the other more sports bar with Multiple TVs. A place you will want to revisit.

Great place for some authentic homemade food. The chicken fried steak was one of the best I've tasted. My wife had fish and shrimp which was also very good. The restaurant had a great vibe. The bar side had multiple TV's for those interested in watching any game playing. The wait was a little bit long (perhaps to being a... More

Food is always good. They are known for the fajita nachos which are delicious as are the hamburgers but you can't go wrong with the hamburger steak with gravy/onions and the cheesy zucchini.

Great food! Great place! Great location! My personal favorite are the fajita nachos deluxe with guacamole. But the Pancho Villa plate offers a good portion of fajita and delicious flour tortillas. Everything is good. Fast and great service always!

let me say, I've been disappointed twice here. I had high expectations as its been a highly recommended restaurant. my first visit was unexceptional as food is concerned. the plate was average in presentation and in taste nothing to write home about. I charged it to first timer status, so I gave them a second chance. Again, I was disappointed... More
