I love Tex-Mex and this place does it right. The guacamole was creamy, chips warm and crisp. I had the beef fajitas and my son had the combination shrimp, chicken. They were all very nicely seasoned. And did I mention our waitress? One of the sweetest, best servers I have had in years. I forgot her name but she needs a raise. I am so sorry I forgot to write it down. She truly made our dinner more enjoyable. Try this place, you won't be sorry.

We were camping in Athens. Old friends took us to their favorite restaurant. The food was wonderful. I would like to have Jaliscoâs green sauce piped into our RV. Our friends said their family eats there weekly, and its authentic Mexican cuisine, but they also offer Tex-Mex. Our breakfast was fresh, hot and mouth-watering. Iâm anxious to return.
