Not many choices in this city, I ordered the #2...well the name suits the dish. Beans had a crust over them like they have been sitting on the plate under a heat lamp all day. The taco was borderline edible but meat was mixed with refried beans. I should have known when the hot sauce came out, it looked like... More

Love their chile rellenos better than anywhere else I have eaten them. Their fish is good also. The guacamole, eh, it could use some flavor. The queso is very good.

I am from Duncan and I have ate at this restaurant numerous times throughout my life time and everytime I go there I say I'm never going back their service is terrible and their food is very poor and the cost is very expensive save your money and go elsewhere.

We had not been into this restaurant for several years and went in to get a take out dinner. The interior was dark, the food was unappetizing, and any fast food Mexican restaurant would have been less expensive and tastier.

I have eaten here many many times over the last 40 years and it is always one place my family insists on at every time we return to Duncan. I have never ever gotten anything I thought was bad but for the most part most of what they serve is about like any other Mexican restaurant except their Chile Relleno's... More

The Chille Relleno is one of the best foods I have ever eaten in my life. This area of the country is not known for the frieldiness of the wait staff or for atmosphere in restaurants, so I pretty much just care about the food. I eat here twice a week if I am not on a diet. It is... More

It was my 1st time to eat a Mexican food. I was indifferent. the Restaurant has the Mexican feeling. And i enjoyed the way the server carries the hot plates of food. Expect your tortillas et al.

I ate here twice. Both times the food and service was awful. The food was tasteless, cold, and just overall not of good quality. The tacos and enchiladas had no taste; they were so bland. The waitress was uninterested in serving us. I have no idea why she was "working" there. Those in my dinner party never got drink refills... More

HOOK: The stall in the women's bathroom is too short to start with, but then a hardware-type metal hook has been installed on the inside of the door. When I turned around in the stall, the hook caught me on the forehead. I am still carrying that bruise on my forehead. FOOD: This restaurant is a favorite of several of... More
