Very busy when we went around 6:30 on a Saturday night. Slight wait to be seated. We started off with the complimentary chips & salsa as well as a green sauce. We don’t know what was in the green sauce, but it was awesome! Two...More

This place is great! If you like your salsa hot, ask for their Mamatomic salsa. It comes out a bit orange, so you have an idea of what its made of. Its not for the faint of heart!

On a hot Sunday afternoon in June we stopped in for a meal and margaritas...good menu, great frozen margaritas. The chips and green sauce are what stood out. Good place to stop on I-35.

We’ve been coming here for over 10 years but not nearly so often anymore. They used to have beans without lard. Both types. Now my meals just aren’t the same. No beans don’t eat lard.

We’ve come here for years since it opened. It was our kids favorite restaurant. It was sold last year and went down hill fast. First prices were raised by 30% or more and food quality went down by 50%. Plan on spending $15 per person...More

The restaurant was able to quickly seat our party of 12 for dinner on a Monday night. The service was just okay. The green chip dip and red salsa were very good. My beef enchilada, tamale and taco combo dinner was okay. I've had much...More
