This is the best restaurant in Sebring that abuts Lake Jackson. Hurricane Irma destroyed the patio, but it is being re-built. The service is attentive. We got as many re-fills of chips, water, sweet tea, and soda as we could consume. The dishes are not...More

Smother everything in Refried Beans, Rice and Cheese. It's the same old American idea of a Mexican restaurant. It's not bad...just pretty standard boring stuff. Just a step above Taco Bell but with beer and Tequila.

Friendly service plus 2 for 1 alcohol drinks. All four of us had good food served quickly. Corn chips arrived immediately with salsa. Then we had delicious guacamole with our chips. I had shrimp garlic which was well cooked.

This restaurant is lovely to look at but the food and service leave much to be desired. My veggie burritos only had beans on them. They could have had sautéed vegetables or beans but not a combination of the two. Beans were mushy and bland....More

I love the Mexican design, in and out, The service was outstanding. The fresh made chips and salsa was very good. We all enjoyed our food. The margarida had a little too much ice. We will be going back.

I loved the look of the place and the atmosphere. The food was good but average. One of the things I love about Mexican food is the cheese and the spice. For me the foods meat to cheese ratio was too high. I had the...More

They don't have any private rooms, but may be able to accommodate you. I have seen large groups/families. I suggest you call and tell them what it is for and how many people. They are very friendly and helpful.
