I would eat here again. In town for business. I've eaten at the Lazy donkey in town before. Either place is the same for me. Typical Mexican food made american style. Service was good. Eat dinner here. Food was typically priced for a place like this. No alcohol or desert for me. Just dinner. They do have an outdoors area that looked pretty decent. And they look like they can handle pretty good sized crowds. The location is really close to the University.

love this place... I almost never say that in a review either, I think. outdoor patio makes me feel like I'm on vacation; the food is pretty good but super cheap so it doesn't have to that great. servers are hard working and friendly, even though they don't speak a lot of English. perfect place for lunch. check it out.

I really enjoyed the food here, it was tasty and authentic. The only thing that wasn't superb about this place was the service, in his defense I think he was busy(even though he only had three tables).I definitely recommend the beef and cheese dip. And my husband said the margarita was awesome! So get one of those too!

The food here is fantastic. I had the chicken burrito and taco with an extra taco and it was great. The chicken was very flavorful! My date had the fish tacos which were equally good. We order the half pitcher of margaritas and it was STRONG! We didn't even order top shelf alcohol. The only thing I would change about our meal were the refried beans, they were a little runny. Overall, we were thoroughly satisfied.

Visited this restaurant a few weeks ago while working in Smyrna! Salsa and Chips were so good...our beer was very cold & yummy! We ordered the mushroom quesadilla with rice & beans! Rice & beans were good but a little disappointed with the quesadilla the mushrooms were really dry and there was very little cheese on it! We will go back and try something else...just think they had an off day with the mushrooms!

This restaurant is fantastic. It is my favorite Mexican restaurant in metro Atlanta. The food is always fresh and flavorful, the staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. It has a fun authentic feel. I've been three times and always want to come back. Definitely try to table made guac.

I suggest dropping by during a casual lunch. Not a working lunch, mind you- a lunch where you can drink and beer and sit for a while. The lunch specials consist of a ton of food, and are usually under 5 dollars. Overall: Awesome food, very low prices, non-chain restaurant. The waitstaff is often slightly surly and their English isn't great- but who cares? You're getting a great meal.

The food here is solid. It's pretty obvious that they are serving authentic Mexican cuisine. The cheese dip with jalapeños is right on. Their salsa has just the right kick & isn't chunky, which I like. Great cheese enchiladas. I've had their margaritas too & they're really good as well. Service is kind of meh. You get chips, salsa, queso, drinks all pretty quickly. Food comes out quickly too. But God forbid if you need a drink refill or you want a side order of sour cream, because they don't check on you often. Servers are polite but not overly nice or friendly. Still, if you want good Mexican eats, this is the place. I go from time to time just to have that awesome cheese dip!

They try super hard to take care of everyone, however they always seem short staffed. The food is amazing our favorite in the area. Parking can be a challenge they share a parking lot with Red Lobster. The drinks are good, a bit pricey but they do the job. No wifi.
