Traditional Mexican with a Flare for Fish

This restaurant offers an extensive menu. I wondered if they'd be able to pull off all the dishes that were ordered. Three of us ordered 'safe' dishes (enchiladas, a burrito, and fajitas).One of our group ordered 7 Mares Caldo (7 seas fish soup). I thought she might be making a mistake. It's... read more

Food was ok, slow service as only 5 tables in the place were full but took a long time for food. Never asked if we wanted more chips while waiting. We ordered 2 margs and got the large ones, did not ask what size, I am a light weight but after finishing the drink I tasted no tequila taste and... More

Wife and I decided to check out a new (for us) restaurant for our Sat night "before church" date night and were left completely disappointed. Service was TERRIBLE -- staff seemed most distracted (World Cup soccer on the TV...hmm) and uninterested -- hardly saw them and when we did both seemed to be in a bad mood. Not a lot... More

This is the same restaurant as another listing on tripadvisor with the "d" capitalized. We are not Mexicans or even Latinos but we eat at a LOT of restaurants and this is one of our top favorites, especially for Mexican. NOT your typical half dozen ingredients just in different shells: tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and tostadas. So many other great choices!

We both loved our dinner and think we would return. We salivated at some of the dishes our neighboring tables had and could not find one thing we would not like to have or try. The reason I am not 100% sure we would return, is only because of the environment we were out of towners (read: we were the... More

We had their Nacho's as an appetizer and their Pork Carnitas. Both were well prepared and seasoned, served fresh and hot. They were tasty. Their menu is extensive so we will return soon to try other dishes. We also like the decor - doesn't look so great but inside is well appointed and very spacious which is not obvious from... More

This is such an amazingly good Mexican restaurant. I sit at home and crave their food. They have a huge menu offering everything from basic tacos to seafood-packed extravagant dishes. I use any excuse I can to go here.

Went to lunch with some business associates after a meeting. The service was great, drink replenishment was good. Even had a few vegetarian options on the menu! We were in and out as quickly as we wanted to be, but could have comfortably stayed much longer. Went back a few days later, and are plannng another meeting there this week.... More
