The service here is always good. If you haven't tried Mexican chicken soup I highly recommend it. Nice broth with rice, avacado and celantro on the side. Highly reccomend Casadea Azteca as well as the Fahitas I prefer the shrimp with this dish. Yummy! The large draft seems like 32 ounces. Almost too much to drink.

While visiting Ellijay we ate here one night. Food was good but nothing special. Chips were stale but plates had a good amount of food on them. Small beer menu. Not anything to get excited about.

No frills/great food/good margaritas. They keep it simple and do a great job. Love the tortilla soup.

Food is excellent here no matter your preference in Mexican. My hubby had a good burrito and I had good fajitas. Margaritas come in different flavors and you can have frozen or on the rocks! Service is great! It's located in a small shopping center behind the McDonalds. Get your Mexican here!

Have enjoyed at least two very good lunches here. Traditional Mexican offerings and a daily lunch special. Servings are large and you might consider splitting a meal. Margaritas are tasty and large! The service here is very good and friendly. I appreciate that I can walk in at lunch time and quickly get a table. One of the best Mexican... More

Ate here with the family, as a tourist, based on the reviews. Place was dead when we arrived, yet service was still slow. Guacamole had way too much garlic. Pork tacos were fatty. Suggest you try another place if in the area.

Probably the oldest of the Mexican Restaurants in the Ellijay area and rated best by many. Great service and food is more the Tex-Mex menu

The meal was typical Mexican restaurant fare, but the table side guacamole was very very good. I'd go back.
