Mexican food and atomsphere at its best. This new restaurant is in downtown Americus just a stone's throw away from the Best Western Windsor Hotel. It is housed in an older historic building that has been given a total renovation that is nothing short of spectular.

Once you step inside you are greeted to nothing but beautiful polished wood from the ceiling to the floor. Everything is made from this beautiful polished wood. The tables are so elegant and the bar area was stunning. A lot of thought and work went into the planning and execution of this place.

The menu is very comprehensive. You will find the "standard" Mexican favorites on the menu but there are also locally customized dishes as well. There is nothing "standard" about the taste of the food either. It is cooked and seasoned to perfection and was served piping hot. I tried the house specialty chiles poblanos which consisted of two spicy chili peppers stuffed with cheese and ground beef and covered with nacho cheese sauce. On the side wer Mexican rice, totillas and refried beans. The portions are ample. Prior to my main dish I had both salsa and cheese dip with chips and both were zesty and fresh.

The menu covers anything you could want in the areas of nachos, salads, vegetarian, steak, chicken, fajitas, house specialties, seafood, quesadillas, combinations, desserts and children's plates. The restaurant is also open for lunch and has plenty of reasonable lunch specials.

I have to mention the margaritas. They were perfect! Of course there is a full bar and other drinks available but the margarita on the rocks made with 1800 Tequila was the perfect compliment to the meal.

Hospitality is top notch and I was treated like a princess. I left stuffed and look forward to sliding back down to Americus to eat at this place again.......a real goldmine!
