The service was great but food could have been better. It may have been if that red sauce wasn't poured over everything and if the food was hotter. I've had better Mexican food. The service was awesome though. (Sat, 2013-11-02 18:24)

I was in there a month ago 2:30 ish. The food was terrible, left over from lunch,dry crumbly all the beef . Waiter said sorry meat was left from lunch, and cook had not made new fresh meat. It truly was garbage to try and eat. Sorry was all he said, even though I could not eat it, he gave me the bill. I have been there awhile back food was ok. This one is off our family list of restaurants .9ys (Thu, 2013-01-31 20:16)

Hands down the best Mexican food in the area, and honestly, my favorite and I'd dare say one of the best restaurant in the Brainerd area period! The El Tequila's in the Verndale area is very good too, same food and a lot of the same wait staff... Don't pay attention to ridiculous negative comments about the place because they "changed their salsa"... I mean, seriously? If you like "authentic" mexican food, El Tequila ranks right up there with the best I've ever had, and I've traveled the whole country. (Sat, 2012-05-05 12:56)

Here's the latest. It's February 2012 and the restaurant is a major disappointment. Service: slow to take our order, never checked back on beverages and the food itself was only adequate. The menu board offered 2 for one Margaritas and underneath in small print, "for person". What does that mean? It means one person has to buy two drinks to qualify for the two for one. What a ripoff. Truly a major disappointment. Taco Bell, here we come! (Tue, 2012-02-14 21:28)

This place is OK. For Brainerd the food is revolutionary but in all honesty I can't tell any difference btwn this place's stuff or a place like El Loro in the Cities. It all tastes the same. But again, we're talking Brainerd area here. For Mexican food in the area, this place is top of the line five golden stars. (Mon, 2011-10-10 00:58)

This restaurant was great the past two years, but this year (2011) it is terrible. All the food and the salsa has changed and is no good!! Save your time and money and go somewhere else.Its really to bad because it WAS very good. (Mon, 2011-08-22 18:38)

Delicious food, large portions, and fast service. Always glad to take home the leftovers. About time the lakes area had a decent non-fast food restaurant in the area. (Fri, 2011-04-22 16:56)

Definitely the best Mexican food in the area, and for me, ranks up there with the best mexican food I've had anywhere in the country. My favorite restaurant in town by a large margin. (Tue, 2011-03-15 11:34)
