“Good food with low prices”
Reviewed 17 August 2012 via mobile

Some of the best food in Shenandoah. The service has always been excellent. A great place for family events. The atmosphere is lacking. However. they have made some recent improvements. Overall a good place for the buck.

“Reasonably Price Mexican”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Family friendly menu served a family friendly price. Good variety in the menu. The atmosphere is just a little flat.

Located in strip mall. This place has an expanded menu with everything from the basic tacos, burritos, and enchiladas to more exotic items. The beef enchiladas were very tasty. My wide enjoys the ceviche. Service is excellent.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

Service was very slow to start off - took 3+ minutes to be acknowledged after being seated, several more minutes to take my drink order. Once my order was placed, it came within minutes. The Chimichanga con Pollo is muy delicioso. One star deduct for slow service.
