About a month ago, I noticed this restaurant had closed. Sorry to see them go as their chips & salsa were quite good and their lunch buffet was a valued alternate in our lunch routine.

Be ready to experience true mexican food at a great price. The location is not fancy but the quality of the food and the service overcomes everything else.

I was born in El Paso TX. Mexican food is authentic there. The people working this place are from El Paso and know their stuff. If you're looking for real mexican food this is it. If you are looking for cookie cutter crap...pass on by.

We used to eat here frequently. We loved the buffet and margaritas. Their normal dinners are nothing fancy. It has the potential for so much more. Seems like it is slipping on quality and service.

Went during the weekday buffet and it is excellent. Really good variety of well-made foods. The desserts are superb! From flan to a delicious cake soaked in what looks like milk, plenty of fruits and pudding as well. Everything is well prepared and nicely presented...More

I came for lunch at 11. Their doors weren't open until 11:10 and when I finally got in, they still had chairs on the table and the tables were dirty. I asked the receptionist if she thought this was ok and she did not see...More
