“Don't let the external look scare you away!”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

It's a very nice small restaurant in Denton, the staff is nice and attentive, the food is very good and it has very good prices as well.
Beef fajitas are very nice, Carne asada (steak) is huge and good. Absolutely recommended.
It should only look a bit better, and the only reason I don't give 5 to this place is that I've been to a mexican restaurant in New Orleans, where the fajitas were even better.

“Good food, downscale Tex-Mex”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

This place comes straight at you with solid and tasty Tex-Mex food. The only frill in this little pay-at-the-register joint is the tiny complementary serving of borracho beans. The tacos and enchiladas are very good. They offer several bottled Mexican beers (and sodas) in addition to domestic brands. The salsa is spicy. Service is unsophisticated but attentive. It is usually busy, even on week nights and is often packed. We come back regularly, and I know people who think it's the best Mexican food in town.

“Great chips and salsa”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Chips and salsa were great as well as the little bowl of beans. The chorizo queso was really good but the fajitas were just ok.

“BEST in Denton!”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

Love this little hole in the wall Mexican place. Great food and authentic. It is definitely the best Denton has for great Mexican food. It's like a secret that only the locals know.

“Authentic Tex-Mex with local flavor.”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Over all experience mixed. If you like Tex-mex style of food this the place for you. But if you liked traditional Mexican food such as red sauce made from ancho peppers than this place is not the place for you. They assumed that meat sauce was the only thing you put on enchiladas. The boracho beans were a nice treat as free appetizers along with the tostadas and great chilled tomato based salsa.
