This is my family’s favorite restaurant! It is consistent in its quality of food and service! Mario, the owner, and his array of servers make sure the dining experience is first class. Clearly it’s thw best Mexican food in Scioto County!

We called ahead for a group of 14. They quickly accommodated us, and the waiter got every order perfect. The mariachi band was really good. They were fun to interact with! Food very good.

Owned and serviced by Mexicans. Large portions of delicious Mexican food. Stays busy and full especially at dinner time. It is the best Mexican food in the area. Located close to the Murals and close to the antique shops. A great place to eat!
