“Good food.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Good food, but it took forever to get the check and pay. Get the Chili Relleno. Really good, a bit spicy. Good chips, too. It's not fancy, just good regular Mexican food.

“Still the BEST Chili Relleno You Will Ever Eat”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We went in for lunch and the place was packed with working locals getting the daily buffet. We decided to order from the menu and I ordered the Cueva Special --it has a little of everything, including the insanely delicious Chili relleno AND flauta with a queso dip to die for! My partner ordered the flauta plate and we ended up eating from each others plates. We still had great service even though they were swamped.If you want great Mexican food at a fair price, this is your place. Hey they even have a live band out on the front porch on Thursday nights! Nothing fancy here just good food and the best chile relleno I ever had! I come here ever time I am in town. Tacos ain't bad either.

“Chile rellenos!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Wonderful chile rellenos, above average salsa, good Mex-Tex food in an established spot. Nothing fancy, but comfortable.

“Good place for old fashioned Tex-Mex fare.”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Pretty darn good Tex-Mex offerings, fajitas and enchiladas were darn good. Prompt and friendly service (which is pretty much what you find in this neat little town). The most noticeable shortcoming was the chips and salsa. Aside from charging for more than one bowl, which is blasphemy in Texas, the chips were stale and the salsa tasteless. One was plenty.

“Very Good Mexican Food, Steaks, Sea Food & Burgers”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Stopped here for dinner and absolutely loved the food. The enchiladas and Chili Rellenos were great. They are open for lunch and dinner. I think it's one of the best restaurants in the Fort Davis area.
