    They're very friendly and kind but they may be busy/slow. Their tee shirts crack me up, too: "Our English is not great but we won't make fun of your Spanish.

    The shrimp was also grilled perfect, and the accompanying sauces just added the flavor parade. This is definitely worth ordering again. The tres leches cake was a great sponge

    There aren't too many Mexican restaurants right in the immediate area so I think they are busy most days. My wife and I had a great time and the food was fresh and tasty.

    Good, solid mexican food. Try the chile colorado. They put some time into that sauce. Deep, rich flavors.

    It became a challenge to see if we could empty our glasses, salsa bowl or chip bowl before we had more. Food is around the norm, and normal price, but again give me good service and I'll be back!

    This is the place to get Tex-Mex! and the place to bring your out-of-town guests Every time the bf is in town, we have to make a stop at Borders {OK, maybe a few times!}.

    e. They are more than willing to substitute meals and the owner is very responsive to service problems. The meals are extremely good prices. Recommend highly.

    Best Mexican in Smyrna, and believe me I have tried several in Smyrna. The Spicy Burrito is enough for two and is delicious.

    The lunch menu is great! Our servers have been better as well. I do think they are worth giving a chance. I like the ambiance of this restaurant. We'll keep coming here on probably a monthly basis.

    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.

    Steak fajita nachos are great. House salsa is a little hotter than most places, which is how I prefer it. Fast, clean, friendly. Been there three times. All good experiences. :-)

    I would eat here again.Typical Mexican food made american style. Service was good. They do have an outdoors area that looked pretty decent. And they look like they can handle pretty good sized crowds.
