This is a nice restaurant tucked into a small strip mall. The food is very good and the service is fast and courteous. We really like their chicken green enchiladas for dinner. Their fajitas are also very good and enough for more than one person.

This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in Springfield. It has a very similar menu to most Mexican restaurants. The food is good, the prices are fair and the service is fast.

I had the chicken chimichanga. The food was served quickly and tasted great. My friend had chicke faitas. We both really liked the food and would go back again.

I'd probably give this place 4 stars, except for the very average guacamole and being in a strip mall with little ambiance. It does have the prerequisite country murals on the wall though. I had the pork plate-chunks of well seasoned pork served piping hot, accompanied with rice and beans and tortillas (I had flour). Way too much food. My... More

Pretty much like all the other Mexican places in the midwest--big servings, big drinks, not much taste. Seemed either understaffed or gormless--service was erratic.

We have been here dozens of times over the years and this place seldom disappoints. Love the quesadilla grande and dollar margaritas on Thursday nights!

The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is average Mexican and typical of what you will find in central Illinois.

The food is decent and cheap. With cheap food comes terrible service. If you can't find your waiter don't bother trying to grab another because they will play the " I don't speak english card" and completely ignore you. Once your food is ordered good luck getting additional drinks, food, or anything else other than your check. I met a... More

Nothing different than a million other Mexican restaurants. Well priced lunch specials. Big beers and margaritas.
