We went on a Sunday evening when it seemed that every other sit down restaurant we could find was closed. Needless to say it was fairly crowded. The menu is a fairly typical Mexican selection with a few house specialties thrown in. The food was fairly average. Service was terrible with wait staff disappearing for a long time before bringing... More

Had dinner last night after a long day driving. We were seated immediately and gave our drink orders. Drinks were promptly delivered and entrees ordered; I the enchilada/taco (beef) combo, my wife the chicken fajitas. Our food arrived within 10 minutes. My enchiladas were basically tasteless, the meat unseasoned and just rolled up in a shell and covered in sauce... More

They have it all, a very complete menu with tons of options. Nice, friendly staff. Crowded seating, kind of loud when it's full, and it can get very busy.

I don't know how this restaurant is rated #3 for Douglas. No staff person smiled the entire time we were there. I ordered a chicken chimichanga and got a ground beef one. My husband burnt/blistered his finger trying to move the plate of food haphazardly placed in front of us. The food was okay. A previous reviewer was right about... More

Went for dinner, the place was kind of dirty, the food was ok but the Maragaitas were served warm ---with ice.

This restaurant exceeded my expectations of Wyoming Mexican food. The salsa that came with the chips was not my favorite, but the chips came with bean dip which made up for the subpar salsa. My burrito was excellent. The tortilla was flavorful, as was the sauce and beef. My grandfather enjoyed his carne asada. Overall a 4 out of 5... More

Omg the food here was amazing! I had the fajita burrito. My friends ordered other stuff and everything was amazing. The only real problem we had is that nobody ever came back after we got our food. We had to go and get the check from the front. Honestly though, the food was so awesome I didn't even really care.

The food here is excellent. There was a large selection and because my friend and I went at a rather slow part of the day it was fairly empty and we were well tended. The margaritas were amazing. I recommend the blackberry one.
