“A nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Stopped for a quick dinner after a long day of travel. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service. The staff was busy but very welcoming. We would eat here again.

“Great food & great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

We had a great lunch that cost $21 for two people. I had the chimichanga and my husband had arroyo con pollo. Both were delicious and plentiful. What I especially liked was the option of having the lunch menu on the weekend. Will go back again.

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

Better than any Mexican place I've been to. We came for lunch and the portions were huge. Our nieces absolutely loved the cheese sauce too. For four of us our bill came out to $54.95 before tip. We will definitely return on future visits and highly recommend.

“Terrible food and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

My wife and I ate here yesterday...Our hostess and waitress NEVER once smiled or even looked u sin the eye....they were also too busy on their Iphones to notice anything going on in the restaurant. Where are the managers??? OHH yeah the food was BAD from the salsa on the table to the microwaved Mexican food they served us....Avoid this place

“Authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Ate here on Sunday nite after arriving in blowing rock. It was your normal Mexican restaurant with authentic Mexican food. The salsa and chips were good (salsa was on the mild side). The food was very good. Not very crowded when we were there. Prices were normal for mex restaurant. I would go back again.
