Suprisingly Good Options - Edit

Stopped for dinner while passing through on a road trip and were pleased to find a vegetarian section on the menu. My husband had the fajitas, which he said had a good fajita flavor, and I had the bean burritos. Normally the burritos come with cheese sauce but I asked them to substitute a green sauce, which was yummy but might be bit spicy for someone not accustomed to spicy food. Their salsa had a good flavor but was not very spicy. They tend to put cheese an just about everything. My husband's side of beans came with cheese because we didn't think to tell them not to put cheese on them. It wasn't a problem for him, but if you are avoiding dairy be sure to explicitly ask that it not be put on anything. We both enjoyed our meals and plan to stop by again next time we are in the area.

Pros: good prices and tasty food

Cons: average chips and salsa

Pleasantly Surprised - Edit

I decided to try this place out due a previous review left. I was a little skeptical though since that post was approximately two years old. I pulled in yesterday afternoon after a few hours of riding. The staff was super friendly, and my waiter spoke just enough enlish to get the job done. Usually with Mexican food you get a good indication of the quality of food from how good their salsa tastes. Their salsa is amazing, and the chips were served hot! They have a small vegetarian section which is easy to alter some items to vegan. I ended up getting vegetablle fajitas with tortillas and beans and rice, hold the cheese. They serve biblical portions, and even after walking in starving, I could only finish just over half of my food. The atmosphere was friendly and family oriented (lots of families there at lunchtime on Sunday)! I am stoked to find this place as I only live 15 minutes away and options are slim in this area!!!

Pros: Huge portions, Family Friendly, Good prices

Cons: Busy at lunchtime on Sunday

La Pinata is the place to go in Mississippi - Edit

A one-day drive from Texas to Atlanta found us in Mississippi on a Sunday at dinner time. What to do? An iphone search found La Pinata with good reviews but no menu. We thought we might be able to negotiate a meal there. We were astonished to find a vegetarian section on the menu. We ordered vegetarian fajitas that included cauliflower, mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, squash, bell peppers and onions. They came up with a meatless chili relleno -- not on the menu -- because my husband wanted one. Three of us ate for under $19 and left happy. And it was a nice place to eat. And it was a nice place to eat. There were hand carved and painted with images from Mexico, including a fair reference to Diego Rivera. The stop was a far bigger success than we ever expected. Go there.

Pros: Excellent food, Great Service, Good Prices

Cons: Limited selection for vegetarians
