I'm gonna give this restaurant three stars I really think it deserves two or one but I'm gonna try to be fair since this was our first visit. We were seated right away. but unfortunately, it took about 20 minutes just to get a drink order. The food was just blend. Nothing special. I asked our server to bring us their house hot sauce, and she brought me a bottle of Texas Pete! My husband had asked three times for tortillas ago with his fajitas. By the time they brought his tortillas to him, he was almost done with his lunch.

They have a vegetarian section to the menu. Bonus points. Happy with what I got (vegetarian), big portions, reasonable prices. I got here traveling on I-95 - I'd stop again.

This is my favorite place for Mexican food! The food is so delicious, the servings are huge, the atmosphere is comfortable and it's just an all around great place! We had a very young server who may need a little customer service training, but he didn't do badly. I highly recommend!Food: 5/5

Authentic food very nice staff great for drive-through so far I will go inside soon as I just moved to the area.

I gave this 3 stars ONLY because the other people that I ate with enjoyed their meals somewhat. I got a taco salad that was SOOO spicy and the taco shell bowl was filled with a watery substance (from the LITTLE bit of lettuce that there was?). It was disgusting. Soupy SPICY salad? No thanks. Then when I tried to break off a piece of the shell / bowl it fell completely apart from being soggy ... yuck

Visiting from out of town and this restaurant came highly recommended. The customer service was exceptional! The fresh made quac was delicious. We ordered a variety of Margaritas (mango, strawberry mango, and the El Jimador). The food came out quick and hot. The shrimp quesadilla Blanco, burrito, and fire skillet fajita were so good. They also have a drive thru option. This establishment you definitely want to check out.

I really enjoyed our meal here. I had the shrimp and rice and it was cooked just right and the flavor was very good. My wife had pollo creama and the flavor was great but for her there was a slight kick in the sauce. I didn't get it but I have a better tolerance for what than she does. The chips needed salt and tasted like they were cooked in old oil. Overall enjoyed it very much.

Stayed in Rocky Mount for the night since it's right off 95. We decided to stop in here for drinks and some dinner. We were so glad we did! The place is huge and had many tables. It was packed too but we got seated quickly. The menu was very extensive and a hard to choose from. I chose from the combination dinners and got a taco and enchilada. My husband ordered the Poblano Special. Both were delicious. We loved the refried beans. They had a little bit of a spice to them. The drinks were delicious as well. Planning on stopping here again on our next drive back through Rocky Mount!

We stopped here on a road trip to Outer Banks. The food and service were excellent. One highlight was the Queso w chorizo. The burritos , enchiladas and quesadillas were also excellent. Our server was very attentive. All around a great stop.

This was a really really nice restaurant. Atmosphere great, service very accommodating. We didn't order a lot but it was excellent. Had the chicken soup and a taco. Salsa nice also. Will definitely stop again and do recommend.

It was the nastiest experience I have ever had. I have had some nasty things in my mouth but none like I had today. And I once picked up a wrong cup and drank my tobacco spit that tasted better. This was my favorite place but after today I will never go back. As bad as it tastes that will never leave my mind.

This was our first time there. We're from out of state and I saw this restaurant on Yelp. We were seated right away. Our server Dania came right away and took our drink order. Then took our food order. Our food came out fast and hot. It was delicious. Dania came several times to check on us and refill our drinks without our asking. I really like that in a server. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Well-trained staff took great care of me while in from out of town. Chips were warm and tasty with the perfect amount of salt and really good salsa. The Trio of dips was amazing! Fresh guacamole was incredible. Good shrimp taco and chili relleno. Nice atmosphere with sports on televisions, a bar, and comfortable booths.

Great decor inside great service very clean, large tables and comfortable seating. I had the veggie soup. Huge bowl with all fresh vegetables. Veggies tasted fresh cooked not soggy or mushy, I tried the chipotle shrimp, they were the perfect heat with open grill flavor.
