The food here is absolutely wonderful. It is a great Mexican restaurant and everyone is so very friendly, but it does not appear to be clean. Sadly, I have quit going to this restaurant.

We ordered the pico de gallo, and it was quite good...it had a lot of fresh avacado in it. My husband had carnitas and said they were tasty, and I had tamales (they were good, but I have had better). The really bad thing about the meal was the fact that our waitress took our orders, brought our food, and didn't come back to see if we wanted anything else. When we were almost finished, she came to bring our check; only then did we finally get to ask for more salsa and for drink refills. The restaurant appears clean; the atmosphere is average; and the staff is friendly. It is easily accessible from the interstate and is certainly better than a fast food restaurant.

This is the best mexican food in the newport area. It could use a little work on the atmospere. But a nice place. Staff is very friendly.

We were on vacation and after a long day of being tourists in Gaitlinburg we were all ready for food close to the cabin we all stayed in. We drove 10 minutes to Newport for mexican food. We didn't know what to expect but we got a delicious dinner! My sister, who is extremely picky, even liked the food!
Three of us ordered fajitas, which were wonderful. They give you the sizzling pan of meat and veggies, the plate of "salad", and three large tortillas. There was so much food that even after stuffing all the tortillas there was some left over to take back with us. All of us left stuffed and very happy.
Our waiter was also great. He didn't keep us waiting and all of our food and drinks came quickly, from chips and salsa to main course and from water to coors light.

We are locals and eat at this establishment at least twice a month. It is an outstanding value. Although the food is not of the caliber of the big-city restaurants like Chey's, it is very good, and the wait staff is very accommodating. Try the made to order Pico de Gallo made with fresh jalapenos, onions, cilantro, and tomatoes for a spicy addition to your meal.
