This is one of the few options, as far as it down restaurants, on U.S. 192 in Kissimmee. Very much like the selection of the type of meat used in your entree. Not much of a pork person, but the carnitas is good.

Ubered here from Disney property. Not bad, not great. Local joint. My top shelf margarita just burned going down. Staff was very friendly. Prices were reasonable.

Visited the restaurant following great reviews on TA. It was one of very few restaurants open past 6pm on a Sunday evening in the town!! Traditional, good service, food delicious. The warm nachos and salsa, mmmm. Please visit! 5 stars.

We went there on recommendation of our hotel and it was fabulous. The tamales were full of chicken ..the burritos were excellent and the service was amazing. Definitely a go to kind of place. If I lived here, it would be a regular place to go for Mexican food.

We love Mexican food and have searched high and low for authentic GOOD Mexican food! We finally found it today in Kissimmee! This place is wonderful and the service was awesome!

This restaurant was popping when I got there on a Sunday night. There were families and singles, very lovely and diverse crowd. I ordered the vegetarian fajitas with corn tortillas. The tortillas were piping hot, the salsa was on point, and the veggie offerings well done and not greasy. Service was quick and friendly. Great place!

Ate here twice during our vacation. Casual, comfortable atmosphere. Started with complimentary warm chips and salsa. We both had the house margaritas. Enjoyed my steak fajitas with all the accompaniments, prefer the homemade corn tortillas. My husband had the dos amigos - beef burrito & chicken enchilada which were also very good. Sopapillas were not the puff pastry that I... More

Here now and must say we were pleasantly surprised to find this place. Friendly, fast, great prices, but best of all the food!! The mariachis were a plus and unexpected. Good place to come with family and kids. Full bar too. Had a steak gordita and tacos al pastor and chicken. Good salsa and chips here.
