They have a daily buffet. Only Mexican buffet that I know of in this area. Pretty good selection-burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, beans, rice, taco salad shells, make your own taco, queso, fixings for all types of fajitas and desserts. It’s $10 and a pretty good deal....Owner is very responsive and keeps things filled up. I’ve been twice and would def recommend!More

Mexican food is something that I find myself loving, but always order the same thing. With the wide variety of options, this new lunch buffet option really opened me to trying some new things! It was all fresh, flavorful and affordable. Well worth the price...and fun!More

Disney movie playing on every tv at full volume...in Spanish. Unable to listen to NFL game which was reason for visit. Sangria was disgusting, made with Peach Schnapps, Grenadine and Wine. Ordered table side guacamole yet received dish of pre- made guacamole from kitchen (I...was charged for table side). We eat here frequently and knew hrs listed open till 10:00 but was informed once we sat down they closed in 30 min at 9:00pm. Staff were cleaning around us and were eagerly awaiting our departure. Couldn’t have felt more unwelcome. Great thing there are many options in Barboursville that have food, beer and will gladly let me spend my money in their establishment.More

My husband and I have been frequent diners at this location since they opened. One of the owners helps behind the bar occasionally, she is very friendly and has helped recommend several items for us to try. I’ll give you my honest opinion from the...really great to the not-so-much. Fantastic table side Guacamole! I highly recommend ordering the flour chips in lieu of standard tortilla chips to accompany this dish. The Caldo De Pollo soup is outstanding as are the Fajitas. The Grilled Shrimp Salad and the Street Tacos are very good as well. This place may have the coldest beer in town and they offer a draft that is HUGE (probably 32 oz or so) the one drawback is they do not have Miller Lite on tap. If you are interested in throwing back some Margaritas I would HIGHLY suggest having the bartender make it from scratch as the “pre made” green connection they use is in my opinion unpalatable.More

The Margarita had way too much sour and it was undrinkable. The taco meat was dry and bland. The cheese was the wrong type. No tomatoes. Waiter did not smile and looked like he was pissed off the second we walked in. Won't be going...back!More

Stopped for lunch. Hadn't been open very long, so service was a bit slow. The food didn't disappoint. Good. Big menu to choose from, fairly cheap to eat lunch. Clean. Friendly staff. Means a lot.

At first I wasnt too impressed with the place..just a small Mexican restaurant. But we ordered tableside Guacamole and fish tacos. They were excellent in everyway! If youre around this place do yourself a favor and stop by!
