“Try It - You'll Like It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This place has great burritos and fajitas. The house margarita in all honesty could be a little stronger so suggest you add a floater of tequila. Owners are very friendly. Service is excellent and atmosphere is very comfortable. Great place for families.

“Out of the way but well worth the drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Love, love, love this place. Oh em goodness! Definitely the best mexican I have had at the lake. We are staying in Osage Beach and it took us quite awhile to get there. (Go around through Camdenton to avoid the $3 toll bridge as the drive time is the same)

While the place was super busy, we had only seconds to wait. We requested a table in the back by the windows and the view was spectacular. Someone promptly brought us chips and two kinds of salsa, and both were really good. Right after that our waiter, Brett, got our drink order and then returned to get our food order. We had the queso fundido for an app and omgosh, it was SO good. It's different from what we have at home and I thought that was my favorite but alas, this is just as good in a different way. Definitely try it! I got the Pollo dinner and it was super. They very nicely substituted corn tortillas for the flour (I'm gluten free) and I appreciate that. My husband had the chipotle shrimp burrito and he LOVED it. My son, had a cheese quesadilla and loved it too. They both had flan for dessert and also loved that.

Will we go back? Absolutely! Any chance we get. It's so good and I also need to tell you that Brett is probably the best server we have had in the past 10 years. We eat out a lot and it is obvious he is very well trained and does a really good job. Hopefully he makes piles of money, lol.

“Best Mex at the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Absolutely the best Mexican restaurant at the lake. The food is great, service is great, atmosphere is family oriented. It does have a bar which is pretty well separated from the dining area. Our favorite is the fajitas for 2. More than 2 people would normally consume and reasonably priced.

“Great food and friendly owners and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

We have been to this restaurant many times. The food is great and everyone there is so friendly. The margaritas are cold and delicious. :) They have a great happy hour too. We love the guacamole and "cantina" chips (flour). They have a beautiful view at sunset. We will go back again and again.
