The first thing you notice here are the bright orange walls which gives you the Mexican feel and warmth. It felt like I was in New Mexico. Am not really sure how old the restaurant is but their brand new hoarding definitely attracts your eye as you drive by the Kings Mountain neighborhood where most of the builds and hoardings looks run down and worn out.
As the outsides, entering inside you get the same vibe and atmosphere as if you are entering a fine dine restaurant in Charlotte downtown. Everything is so arranged and neat and clean. I was really impressed. We were seated at our shiny clean booth and given the free appetizer of tacos. They also had a sauce bar with about 6 to 8 options to choose from. The pineapple salsa was my favorite. The menu book is huge running multiple pages. Most are the standard Mexican dishes or combinations of them, nothing innovative. You definitely need to take your time to go through them.
Our order came in surprisingly fast, and the dishes were hot and fresh. I especially loved how thin their tortillas were. The chicken fajitas was alright but too much on salt. The chimichangas were crispy but not on the excellent side. The quesadillas were alright too. Overall the food was not exceptional compared to the great interiors they have. The dishes weren't really costly with each main entree costing less than $11.
Overall it's a definite try if you are around Kings Mountain or returning from your trail. Excellent interiors and service, lot of food choices and some hot food that hardly puts a hole in your wallet. Definitely recommending!
Nice little place. Good margarita. Great spicy salsa! Not a great wine selection though.
If you sit at the bar, you are SCREWED. They have no bartender. You may get your first round but God forbid if you want another drink. That's like pulling hen's teeth.
The food is typical soft Mexican for the area. No spice, barely any flavor. They added a bunch of craft beer taps and hiked the prices. The new ownership changed NOTHING but the prices. It was a great place when it opened 14 years ago. The beer and drinks were cheap and food was decent. Now? They think they're an upscale restaurant.
The blandest food ever. Better off going to Taco Bell. The salsa and chips at the table was crushed tomatoes with a little onion. Got a taco and enchilada, meat was not seasoned. Staff was fine but food has no flavor.
Mexican food that isn't real good at all.
I got a custom burrito and I thought it was going to come with melted cheese on top of the burrito with a side of rice and some lettuce. Nope just the burrito itself..
Not worth it at all..
Oh and it took forever to get a server.
