Welcoming restaurant with great service. Order was taken promptly and informed of lunch specials. Food was fast and fresh.
Matthew Customer
Wow! We just wanted some Mexican food, and we ended up enjoying one of the best Mexican restaurants we've been too. Certainly not what we expected to find in rural NC. Excellent food and the friendliest staff you will encounter.
Chad Nusbaum Customer
Good music, food, and service. The quesidilla was a good hard, so I ate it like a big taco. I don't need no knife that quesidilla got these hands.
michael e Customer
The guacamole is to die for. We spoke with a waitress about the guacamole and she said it's made fresh as it's ordered. Very tasty. Yes I would recommend. Kid-friendliness: I feel that this restaurant is very family oriented.
Ruthanne Mccoy Customer
