Likes: Bright, colorful
Dislikes: Service, food, drinks

We walked into the restaurant and it was empty, not even an employee. The 4 of us stood around approximately 5 minutes before an employee came out for the back. After taking our drink order, she messed up our small order (a daiquiri, pina colada, 3 waters,) I never did get that water. The daiquiri was sugar, ice and frozen strawberry concentrate (where is the lime juice?) The spinach enchilada was fair tasting, the simple enchilada was dry, the vegetable chimichanga had massive non-managable chucks and slice of vegetables (no cheese or beans though,) the chicken enchilada was also dry, the chicken was tender though. The green salsa (salsa verde) is supposed to be a homemade specialty, it seemed homemade, but not special at all. Overall this place should be avoided, I would suggest Taco Bell as a superior alternative.

Lots of choices when it comes to Mexican resteraunts in Maryville. Have to say this is one was a pleasant surprise. Great CLEAN fun colorful atmosphere. Very friendly attentive service and the food was great! They use a great spice on their chicken dishes and the salsa and pico is very good. Love the convenient location. Highly recommend giving it a try!

Sunday thru Friday this small Maryville restaurant has the ULTIMATE Mexican Buffet. The corn husk-wrapped tamales are teriffic. The many and varied enchiladas are a delight. The several styles of fijata and fijata-type meat dishes are tasty. Even the rice (which can vary widely at Mexican restaurants) is really good. I counted 34 items to each the 3 times I've been there not counting the deserts (so far...and counting). Neat-a-rino!!!!!!!!!!!!
