For me this is the best Mexican restaurant in Salisbury. When the food arrives it does not look like it was just heated in a microwave and put on a plate. Also, the staff is friendly and very professional.

While a bit on the expensive side, this restaurant has some awesome food and atmosphere! There was even a band playing background music during our meal! I recommend everyone to try it out!!!

I am so glad we visited this restaurant! I had the Mahi-Mahi-mahi tacos and it was so meaty and delicious! The complimentary pico was amazing! Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant

Dropped in based on reader reviews. Food was good, but pricey. Beers were ridiculous. $8.50 for a tall Dos Equis! Most Mexican restaurants are like $5 at most. Will not be back. What a rip off!

Just stopped by with a few colleagues for lunch. The food was great, derive very attentive and for 5 our bill was $ 70.00 with tax and 2O% gratuity included. One of the best chimichanga's I have ever had! Highly recommend !

Excellent service, very selective menu, and wonderful management. Love going to this restaurant being served by George. Been served by other wait staff and have been treated like we are family.

You would never stumble across this place and it's in an area you would avoid, BUT it's phenomenal! We had a group of 5 with a couple kids, all had something different and everything was wonderful. Large portions, very fresh, delicious taste, great friendly service,...More

My absolute favorite Mexican restaurant in Salisbury, NC. Always fresh and made to order if you have any specific dietary needs. An added treat is listening to the Mariachi band !! Always a fun place to eat and delicious !
