It was very refreshing and clean tasting. Although we did not sample the menu this time, I look forward... read more

We didn't have time for chow, but we did get a couple of cold beers. The bar is stuck back behind the restaurant, and is not very big. Service was very good, and the prices were average for the area.

This place is owned by the same people who own Original Jack's and a few other restaurants on Catalina. The food is good and plentiful and they have pozole, which my husband loves!

I took a group of 35 to this Mexican restaurant. They serve excellent margaritas. We had good service from Maria and the rest of the wait staff. The food arrived on time and was excellent.

Lots of people recommended this place so thought we would give it try. The wait to get seated was pretty bad considering I was on a cruise and time is limited. Being a big guy it wasn't very comfortable but the waitress got me a chair which made it 100% better. Chips and Salsa were pretty tasty and the food... More

Recommended by many of the locals and now we know why. We had sizzling fajitas, homemade pozole (non-greasy), fresh chips and salsa and dynamite margaritas and mojitos. We're eating here again today!

As far as Mexican food goes, this is not at all the Mexican food I grew up enjoying. It was a nice attempt, the decor was festive, the servers were pleasant, but the food was just okay and the margarita I'd been looking forward to all day was a miserable attempt. Overall a lovely atmosphere, but not somewhere I intend... More

Good, quick, Mexican food, at a pretty good price. Overall, the service and atmosphere is nothing outstanding, but the food is good. Try the grilled corn!
