The food here is great-- very flavorful and authentic. The last time we got a fajita, which was big enough to split between us and still take a little home. The chip bar is really what keeps us coming back. Serve yourself chips and create...More

This place is amazing. A lot of people avoid it because they don't serve alcohol, but it's worth the trip if you're not drinking. Parrillada for 2 is amazing and will easily serve 4

Great little gem hidden in Statesboro. The location may seem a bit off but the food is really good. Definately better than some other mexican restraunts in the area.

This place is basic, delicious, reliable and fun. The seating is old and sometimes questionable but the food is unfailingly good and very reasonable. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. A truly local family place.

While the decor is very utilitarian/cafe, the food is excellent and the staff are kind, happy, folks. If you care more about the quality of the food and friendly people than the amount spent on interior decorating, this is the Mexican restaurant for you!
