The food here is prepared really well.The owner and the staff are so nice and I appreciate having this restaurant in our little town.Tonight was part of the soft opening for the new location on St. Ch...arles road. We were one of the first to arrive but the restaurant filled up quickly. The owner takes pride in the product he puts out from the food to the service. Chips and salsa were complimentary. They served both red and green salsa and both were tasty with a little heat. The chips were obviously from a bag but we are hope that once they get settled they will be making their own. It would make so much difference and set them apart. Our table ordered steak enchiladas and alambres. Both were very well prepared. The enchiladas were delicious and the red sauce was definitely not run of the mill. We ordered the alambres with pork. The dish was served with melted cheese, green peppers and onions. The pork was so flavorful and tender. Delicious! We had some leftover and they gave us some corn tortillas to take home. The atmosphere was spacious accommodating more guests than the last location with plenty of parking in back. My only complaint would be that the dining room was drafty. When the heat vents turned on they were blowing cold air on us. Many people kept their coats on during their meal. That will not deter us from returning. See More

Started out with a few sputters. The young man who was to be our waiter needed lots more training. Seems he had the greeting, seating people thing down but serving not so much. Luckily for us a season...ed server noticed our lack of beverages and saved the day. She took over and our dining experience was saved..the food was excellent! We will definitely be back but if we have to suffer through the untrained teenager again it might be a deal breaker. See More

Awesome food, great new location. Really good margarita :) Been going here for awhile at their old location and now here. Always great fresh food. I always try different things on the menu. You can't ...go wrong with ANY of them - haven't tried the burgers yet, they sound amazing but I just love their Mexican food ;) Check out the beautiful Onyx stone bar! See More

The margarita was tasty, and steak tacos were ok, but the beef ones and their taco salad were extremely lacking. It’s also super annoying that you’re charged for an extra basket of chips. And when the... one taco tasted awful, they charged to replace it. I don’t think I’d go back, there are so many better Mexican joints See More

The last time I had Mexican food this good was when I was actually in MEXICO!
Where do I start ?....
They serve my favorite Mexican beer Bohemia!...
Love their chips and the guacamole is fantastic !
(A little spicy for my young daughter, but we LOVED it!)
The skirt steak is nicely seasoned and tender!
The ground beef burrito was huge and the seasoning the best I’ve ever experienced!
I can not say enough about the food, and the prices are reasonable too!
The servers are very nice too!
I’ve only been to their new location, and I like the decor of the restaurant dining area.
They have an area with a bar when you first walk in. However there are no bar stools at the bar and its more of an alcohol pickup area for the waitresses.
I suggest making that area a dedicated bar room for customers awaiting carry out orders!
I LOVE this place and will definitely be back!��

Honestly there are so many Mexican restaurants in the area I wouldn’t doubt if you have never tried this place. If you haven’t then you NEED to!! The food is great and they run specials for lunch time... all the time that run you about $6 for a full meal!!! The owners are AMAZING!!! They treat you like family and i mean every single customer that walks in is family not just the regulars they have! Oh and the new location IS BEAUTIFUL!! The owners put so much hard work into it and THEY EVEN HAND MADE THE BAR THEMSELVES!!! You have to go check this place out!! See More

Delicious! Had carry out from there last night and every dish was excellent! The salsas are full of flavor and excellent spiciness! I do not like spicy foods but their salsas are what other salsas asp...ire to be. We also had tacos. Excellent. We will be back See More

Just discovered this gem which is practically in my backyard. I was surprised to learn this place has been open for 5 years. The food is fantastic. Had the plate for two, which is a platter with ste...ak, chicken and pork, guacamole black beans and rice. We ate heartily and still took a lot home and the food was amazing. See More
