The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best Mexican cuisine I've ever had. I would probably choose a different restaurant on my next trip to Osage Beach. The food seemed to take "forever" to come out. Around 30 minutes or so, and the service...More

Had dinner one night and lunch the next day. Service and food both times was very good. I eat here every time I'm at the Lake because it is consistently a very good experience. Best Mexican food I have found in the area.
