Today was my first time dining here, and I was initially skeptical, given that I am not from the area. The food was ok; however, the service was one of a kind. Our waitress Hannah was amiable and attentive. She provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable about the food items on the menu. I have various food allergies, and Hannah didn't hesitate to answer any questions I had. By far the best service I have ever received, I recommend this place because of the excellent service my husband and I received today.

Very small but homey. Family owned local using fresh ingredients when possible (I had a mahi taco and shrimp taco) but they were excellent. The salsa was a pleasant surprise and probably the best I've ever had. Not real hot or chunky and full of flavor. The chips are made in-house and are a perfect match for the salsa. I'll be going back, for sure!


Great place for anyone looking for Mexican food right in the heart of Asheboro. It has great outdoor seating when the weather is nice too. I've been twice now and the food was awesome and the staff was just as great both times. It can be crowded during peak dinner times in the evening, especially on the weekends. Definitely will be back again soon and recommend it to anyone in town.

We both ordered tocos. The tacos come with limes. It was very tasty. Service was also awesome. We were seated very quickly and placed our order in a timely manner.


Only place I’ve been in a long time where the food looked like the photos on a menu. loaded nachos were beautiful. Best lemonade I ever had. Street dining possible. I did find a hair in my salsa, but let’s face it, if you’re eating out you’re getting more hairs. Service was a bit slow but we were in the bar area and it was a busy Saturday.

My boyfriend and I had dinner at Hamilton's steakhouse and wanted to go somewhere for drinks after! This was the perfect place! We found a spot at the bar pretty quickly even though they were crazy busy! My boyfriend got a strawberry daiquiri margarita & I got a virgin Strawberry Daiquiri margarita - which I was happy they had virgin drinks for me! The bartender was so busy but was on her ish and was super friendly! We will definitely come back here on our next visit to try the food!

The food is always great, but the service not so much. The waiter seated us and took our order and we never seen her again. We were both out of drink and never got asked if we needed anything until she came with our ticket. There were flies swarming us the entire time so while we were eating we were hitting flies. The food is good don’t get me wrong but I’ll never be back because of this!


Went in to eat had roaches.. Might have been on a bad day.. Your best bet is to go somewhere else.. Unless you want some crunch in your food.. YUCK

This place has gone way downhill since it moved downtown. It was one of the high points of food in Asheboro for a long time, and it remained top notch for a while after its move. But recently, the take-out orders take as much as an hour to prepare, from call time to wait time outside. And sadly, the food is not nearly as flavorful as it once was. Dry meat, soggy tortillas. A once-great local Mexican restaurant. Its downfall makes me sad.

We just came here for drinks, but really liked the atmosphere and vibe of this place! The bartender was excellent.

I can't speak for dining in. But I work downtown and order to-go from here often. The prices are great and the quality is consistently high. I love to get the tacos (beef or chicken) and the burritos. Only thing I wasn't a fan of was the enchiladas. They were filled with cold cotija cheese, and had small amount of chicken on top. The salsa is homemade and delicious. And they always take great care of me if I have issues with my order.

This place is amazing! Came here after reading some reviews. The burrito was fantastic. My wife got the Hawaiian tacos and my niece got the spicy pork tacos. They both loved them and believe me, they know their Mexican food. The horchata was on point too. Food was so good all three of us had to get dessert, which I never get. About to have the dessert so we will see on that but my expectations are high now. They have set a new bar for Mexican restaurants for me now. Oh my gosh, had to edit the review, the tres leches and churros were 10 of 5 stars!


Great tacos and margarita. Awesome service. We had the Hawaiian tacos, guacamole, mahi mahi tacos. Highly recommend!

This place did not disappoint! I went with some chicken and steak tacos as well as the chips and salsa.Everything was amazing. Food came out pretty quick from the time of ordering. They also had many different drink selections to choose from.


Been about four or more times. The staff is the sweetest and the food is delicious. The orange margaritas are muy sexy
