Second time to this restaurant and the food keeps bringing me back. I like that there is a parking garage near by, within walking distance of the restaurant. I met friends for food and drinks and everyone was happy with their food. Service got to be a little slow at first, but it seemed to get packed quite quickly. Once... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. A relaxed atmosphere which is very child friendly. Attentive service. Broad menu selection. The guacamole prepared table side is both excellent and fun to watch being prepared. A fun time for a couple or for the family. Our grandkids love this place and we do too. Can get busy in the evenings so... More

This is a hidden gem in downtown Arlington Heights. A wonderful varied menu that offers some classic Mexican favorites along with some delightful and innovative twists. Reasonably priced, but occasionally the staff does seem to run on 'island time'.

Loved the variety of more authentic Mexican food than the typical American Mexican restaurant. Even the children's menu had some Mexican offerings. The taste and quality of the food was also very good. They even had a guacamole cart that would come to your table and make it fresh for you. My only criticism is that the decor does not... More

We started with guacamole made at our table, soup, and main courses that neither of us could finish for a very enjoyable Sunday dinner. Wonderfully seasoned, fresh and delicious.

In addition to the overall excellent quality of the food and its preparation, there are a number of things that help this restaurant stand out from the average Mexican meal - they serve 3 very different types of salsa with the unlimited chips, the table side prepared guacamole is outstanding and the menu has some unique items, largely thanks the...

We went because of a groupon. The food was good but nothing special. It is located right in the middle of downtown Arlington Heights so I can see it is likely to be a busy place.

My husband and I stopped here after reading great reviews. It definitely exceeded our expectations! Along with our chips and salsa, we ordered freshly made (at your table) guacamole. It was awesome! As suggested, I ordered the tacos (which were delicious!) And my husband ordered the Mago Grill fajitas. The fajitas are probably enough to eat for two but my... More

We happened upon this restaurant by accident this summer and it is quickly becoming a favorite destination. From the unique salsas and cocktails to the terrific service this place is not your ordinary Mexican restaurant.for those with special dietary needs, the staff was educated and careful (one of the signature salsas contains nuts). Several varieties of Mole have left us... More
