Was an very good restaurant for many years. Best Tex Mex meatball soup even better than any in Texas, and this from a long term Texas resident now living in lakeside area almost full time.

After being a favorite eatery in Ajijic for many years, it seems as if they have finally closed its doors. We are not surprised because on our last visit a couple of weeks ago, we were very disappointed. Over the years I have lauded their...More

I frequent this restaurant. The sevice is always pleasant and prompt. The ice tea is southern American style with free refills. The Chamorro is a large helping not easily finished by one person and it tastes fantastic. Also, the burger is great and always consistent....More

Best in town for TexMex and a good cheap margarita. Food always freshly prepared. Personally I don't like reheated so the a la carte menu for me is good. Order exactly what I want and no leftovers. Service is quick and friendly.

If you like Tex Mex, this food is fine. Not a Taco Bell; a bit more like home cooked, but very Texican. It seems that they use a lot of canned and pre-made items.Personally, as a foreigner in Mexico, I prefer to eat the real...More
