Best we have had in Texarkana, salsa had a little to tomato flavor, but had some kick. The black enchiladas were good. Rice was very good. Service was awesome.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. We loved it. The service was so nice, and swift. The food was on point. The music was great, and the atmosphere was very chill. It was priced just right. We will be back.
