“Good, Inexpensive, Clean, Awesome Salsa!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Good Mexican food, the portions are huge, the menu is extensive and the restaurant was very clean. Service was great. Don't be alarmed by the outside appearance of it, we pulled up to the strip mall where it's located and hesitated- go in anyway....We have tried several Mexican restaurants in Glenwood and so far this one has been the best. It's not "downtown" but only a few miles from the pool. Service was very quick, the restaurant does have T.V.'s playing but at a volume where one can still visit. No screaming kids or loud music, YEA, it's cozy....We were surprised it wasn't busier on a Friday night and are hoping this stays in business so we can return the next time we visit.

“Fresh and genuine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Had a simple meal with the family, but nice touches on all the dishes- fajita quesadillas with well cooked steak and vegetables, queso fundido with tomatoes and beans in sauce, very tasty. Potato enchiladas.
Server and most of the patrons primarily spanish speaking amongst themselves, which seems like a good sign in a mexican restaurant. All staff friendly and welcoming.
I predict they will soon outgrow their small cozy location behind McDonalds (near Walmart).
