We have driven past this restaurant many times, and this week we stopped for lunch, and are we ever glad we did! It was cold out, and we wanted hot food in a hurry. My wife ordered the tortilla soup, and it was a meal in itself. Served in a large bowl with a generous amount of chicken and a... More

We go there often! Our friends from Texas say this is the kind of food they have come to expect in south Texas. Food is delicious, service is very fast & and staff is super friendly! Outstanding Margarita's! Prices are very low considering the quality & quantity of food!

I ate here with a friend who says this is the best Mexican restaurant in Greenville. Don't think I'd go that far, but the food was quite good. Wait staff was helpful, and the food came pretty quickly.

My teenage son went there to get some takeout food; he gave the male cashier $20. The cashier told him he didn't have any change and just started laughing with a co-worker. My son got rattled, took his food and left. I went back to speak to the manager today and he was totally unconcerned, said he could not do... More

Had lunch. Service was good, and it seemed the staff were constantly cleaning. The place was very clean, much clean than your average restaurant. The food was average, the sauce on top of the plate seemed to be a little darker, not sure if it was cooked a little too long. The taste was not bad, but not extraordinary. Overall,... More

The food is usually pretty decent. The staff is never all that friendly but tonight when my family went the staff was flat out rude. When we walked in we stood at the front for about 10 minutes before anyone came over to seat us. When the guy did finally come over he got out of a booth where he... More
