The restaurant is closed on Mondays, and the website states that it is open Monday noon. Because of this I give it a 1. My family and I got misled.

We were just wandering around Avon when we came across this Mexican restaurant on a quiet street. The food was well prepared, timely and tasty! They also have the 4 staple Mexican beers. The host was friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend it!
