“Classic”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A StJoe original. The food is good, different. They DO have corn tacos and chips now if you avoid wheat. Nothing comes too spicy, nice for kids. I had the Street Tacos last week, pulled pork on mini soft corn tortillas with cilantro and a tasty sour cream based sauce. Mmmm!

“Building needs repairs, deep cleaning and updating”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Building is in need of updating, deep cleaning and repairs. Food is still good. Would be nice if chips and salsa were free like other Mexican restaurants do.

“Lovely atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Love this restaurant! Friendly and helpful staff. Unique setting in historic St Joseph, MO. Delicious food at reasonable prices. This is a family owned business with two locations in St Joseph.

“Neat house, food not so much”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

"Different then any other Mexican restaurant"...that's is true. I don't understand the appeal. I know the house is really beautiful and the service was fine but...the food is nothing but poor. If you like corn tortilla's in your Mexican food, forget it. Every thing is made out of deep fried flour tortilla's. The enchilada's were so lacking in filling that I couldn't tell which was cheese and which was chicken. The taco was flavorless as was the tostada....except for the deep fried flour tortilla. The only thing that really was quite good was the tamale. Talk about some filling. Otherwise....I just don't understand the attraction. This place has NOTHING to do with authentic Mexican food. As far as liking "cheap chips out of a bag".....no, I like chips that aren't flour tortillas. The 'texture' you are experiencing is deep fried greasy heavy flour tortillas. Just Yuck!!
