Pretty typical little Mexican restaurant. Service was good and meals came out quickly, but I guess that is expected from what is obviously pre packaged and heated servings. For the most part every dish looked almost like mexican soup as it was all a bit on the runny side. My plate had a chili relleno and a burritto. A chili relleno is suppose to be breaded and fried so it should have a crisp outside, this one was soggy and soft. A burritto is suppose to be wrapped in a dry tortilla and easily picked up and eaten, this one was a soft wet mess on the plate. It seems to always be a sign of pre packaged and heated food when the plate comes out hotter than the food. Taste was fine but as I said typical packaged mexican fare, nothing to brag about or rate any higher than average and that is probably generous

Decor was a bit amusing. Pretty much typical fare but it appears to have maybe been done by owners in an attempt to save money. The booths had the restuarant name engraved into the seats and it appears on at least one they mis-spelled their own name. Then out front is a bench that someone attempted to paint the name of the restaurant across the top but ran out of room so the last 5 or 6 letters of restaurant were missing. Who knows maybe they were going for that little hole in the wall Mexican restaurant look that you might find in some small Mexican town.

All in all, nothing to make me want to come back as there are so many Mexican restaurant choices in the area it is easy to find better. Price was ok but not great, family of 4 drinking water was still almost $50

We loved the previous Mexican restaurant in this location and were looking forward to eating here when it opened. Our first few visits were a tad disappointing. The food was lackluster and there was no liquor license. We kept returning .... the food kept improving, and they got their liquor license. Our prime criterion for a Mexican restaurant is how are the margaritas. We haven't been disappointed. Today we came for Sunday lunch and the waiter knew what we wanted to order. Our food came rather quickly, but then it was early! We have come to really look forward to those on-the-rocks top shelf margaritas!
The leftovers reheat nicely in a little butter with an egg or two added for breakfast!

I had a Restaurant.com certificate to eat here, but it required spending $20 to be able to use it. Since there were only 2 of us dining at lunchtime, it would have taken more food than we could handle to reach the $20 mark. Lunch plates were generous portions, included chips & salsa from the moment we sat down, & prices started at $4.99. The chicken burrito was very good, as was their beans & rice. The salsa was thin with small bits of onion & cilantro & just enough spiciness. The outside wasn't impressive. The interior was typical Mexican, including the music. An unpretentious place that I'll definitely return to on my next trip to Huntsville.
