Where do I start with why you should go anywhere else. No greeting from staff or seat yourself sign when you walk in to this dinky place. Watch others sit down at a dirty table and follow suit. Have the staff clear the table and spray cleaner in your direction and wipe the table with the same rag that lays... More

If you're looking for authentic, old school Mexican cooking in Wichita, this is one of very few places to go. If you're looking for a yuppie, trendy atmosphere, you might want to stick with the places you see on TV.

The restaurant was not clean and the food left much to be desired. Everything is covered in cheese sauce.

Food is good. Nice variety. Small place. Tables close together. During the lunch hour it can get crowded and service can get slow as far as refills and getting the check is concerned. Usually take a later lunch to avoid these issues.

The food reminds me of the monthly fund raiser at the catholic church, Monterey day. Mmmm. I'm on my third visit and the food isn't just good, it really tastes wholesome and homemade. Prices and service are good. don't let the location deter you.
