“Unique Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This is NOT your typical Mexican restaurant! This is better described as Tex-Mex modern restaurant. New types of Tex-Mex menu items not found anywhere else in N. Georgia.

Facility is clean. Very busy during the lunch hour. Love the vinyl walls up and the ceiling fans running on a 87 degree day and still comfortable! Food was great.

“Get the lemon cream sauce!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I was skeptical about the lemon cream sauce on an enchilada...not my idea of Mexican cuisine. It is so delicious; it totally blew my mind! The menu here is more a la carte than anything. You choose from items that are all in about the $3 range. You buy chips, and I highly recommend the salsa trio. This is the best salsa verde I have ever had! They make the salsas and pico fresh and you can tell. Chips are always warm and fresh as well. I'm not too crazy about the tacos, but I've only tried the fish and the Memphis. I just prefer my tacos in a hard shell and you can only get soft here. Dining is mostly outdoors on a covered patio with drop curtains. It's great in the spring, but gets pretty hot outdoors in the summer. This is mostly a self-serve restaurant, but the staff come by every once in while to check on you. The food will just about beat you to your table after you order up front. It's definitely worth a visit.

Best margaritas in town!! Look forward to coming here every time I come into town. Don't miss the Nutty Shrimp special taco. My favorite taco there hands down!

“Upscale Fast Food”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We'd heard the buzz about this place and decided to give it a try. Make no mistake, this is a fast food restaurant without the drive-thru. Stand in line to order, refill your own drinks, etc. Each item runs about $3 on average. The food is good but not to die for. The brisket enchilada with the red sauce was a tad too spicy for my taste, but quite good otherwise. The dining area is noisy. Concrete floors, metal roof makes for a large echo chamber. Parking on Prince Ave. is just about non-existent, but there are spaces around back.
