Good food but too expensive for the amount they serve. and in any place I can find better Mexican food for less the price. The location is horrible. All I can say is AVERAGE! I will not recommend this place

Food was overall good but too expensive for its size. Taste same as you would find at any Mexican food restaurant. No beverage refills. A $0.60 can of soda costs $2.00.

I went with a friend to that place and I were the only customers. We ordered appetizers which took about 30 minutes, if not more. The drinks (Margaritas) were very good. The waiter never wrote the order wanted to use his memory. The result brought me the wrong dish. The food was not as delicious as before. I think the... More

This is supposedly the finest mexican restaurant in Ponce and as such I expected a lot more, specially considering their prices. The menu is good but not great, a little limited when compared to the best mexican restaurants in San Juan. Food quality is good and frozen margaritas rival the best I've tasted.

Burito de carne de res is the best. One can taste the difference between authentic mexican and these dishes but it does taste good. Buñuelos is something that does not have the authentic sense of Mexico but it os an amaizing dessert. I have been there fove times and I will come back.

For me, price doesn't match taste and portion of the place. Anyway, my favorite was the appetizer, "Tacos al Pastor".

I always like the food here, that's the main reason why I keep going back. The restaurant has a nice and easy feeling to it. Great service and heart warming soups. The only thing I don't like is that being a Mexican restaurant the guacamole isn't very good... even I can make a better guacamole.

I have been there three times with family and friends and have always enjoyed the food. On my last visit the restaurant was celebrating Mexico's independence day. We had a blast! The waiters are very attentive and kind. Everything we order there is alway tasty and the menu has a decent variety of dishes and prices to choose from. From... More
