“Super fast and friendly”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

There is no where in Howell, you can get your meal faster! Not even "fast food" is this fast! I've enjoyed every meal I've had here and the staff are always happy and welcoming! Everything is clean and the atmosphere is pleasant. We visit at least every other month or so.

“Good Food & Great Service”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We've visited this place many times and never have been disappointed. We usually get a combo plate of some kind so we can sample different items. Love the chili relleno's as they are not fried as most places are. Service his always top notch. Sure there are better Mexican restaurants in Michigan but none that I know of in Livingston County.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

This is our favorite local restaurant. We have been visiting since they opened and the experience has always been excellent. The food has never disappointed and the service is always first rate; fast and friendly even on their busiest nights. Several times here my father-in-law has asked them for something not on the menu (something he saw on TV) and often they have been able to accommodate his request.

“There is NO Better Mexican Food”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Folks you would have to drive to Mexico to find anything better than this. We have tried all those that are here in Livingston, County and this is the place to come and really enjoy excellent Mexican food. The service is just the most friendly and evryone always has a smile on their face, always happy to make your dinning experience just the best. We will always come here for Great Mexican Food Period.
