My husband, daughter and I ate dinner here, along with his extended family, while we in town visiting from Georgia. My husband grew up near Ozark, and this was one of his favorite restaurants to go to after church on Sundays while growing up, so of course we had to go! The restaurant was clean and the wait staff were... More

We stopped for dinner while driving through and were not disappointed. The chips are warm and fresh and served with salsa that is a bit spicy and delicious. My husband enjoyed chicken and beef enchiladas and we both ordered the tamales. They were a good size with a lot of meat inside with a soft outer dough. The tamales were... More

We stayed at a hotel within easy walking distance to this restaurant and we have eaten here before. We ordered the steak fajitas for two. The chips and salsa were good; the chips were thin and crisp and had good flavor. The salsa was good, but a little too spicy for our tastes and we prefer it chunkier. The fajitas... More

We hotel staff recommended this restaurant. It was clean and the staff was friendly. We ordered a variety of food. It was okay. The best thing we ate was the chips with cheese sauce. Where we live we have authentic Mexican restaurants, this paled in comparison. The food really did not have any flavor and was bland.

We enjoyed the chips, salsa and cheese dip very much. The salsa is on the hot side, but really good. For my entree I ordered the beef enchiladas. They were also good. Would be better if sour cream was part of the meal, not extra.

I used to go to this restaurant 30 years ago. I believe it has been sold since then, but it's the same great food I remember. I had lunch burrito and my husband had the special plate with a chili relleno and a chicken enchilada. The prices are excellent and you get a lot of food for your money.

Their Mexican food is excellent, but their steak fingers and steak nuggets are amazing. I recently had a ribeye steak and it was out of this world. I quickly realized the steak was of very high quality. It was very tender and flavorful. Treat yourself to one of their sopapillas.

Thank chrisnugget
