Good Mexican and Island Food

I have eaten here a few times in the past couple of years. The food was good. The service was fine. A good line of craft and imported beer. Family environment. I will go back.

This place was close to our Hotel so we stopped in to try it on a Sunday, as it had good reviews here and on another site. Unremarkable decor when you enter other than the large salt water fish tank with an impressive array of plant life to accompany the typical fish you expect to see. <<<Start ramble about drinks>>>...

A friend of mine worked at this location and I have eaten here several times. I thought the food was pretty good UNTIL he told me they received an 89 on their health inspection!!! Umm disgusting?!?! I was a manager at a restaurant and our scores were always expected to be no less than 95. AND he and other employees... More

We were visiting Montgomery and decided to try a different Mexican restaurant instead of our usual place. This one was convenient, so we gave it a try. The service was good and the chips and salsa were plentiful and good. Food came out quickly. My wife, who grew up in south Texas eating Mexican food, ordered an enchilada and taco... More

I went here with a friend on a Wednesday evening before a movie. It was pretty slow, being that it was prime dinner time. My friend enjoyed his tacos more than I enjoyed my Camarones Criollo (shrimp with a ketchup tasting "cuban" sauce over rice). I do like that they have a very tall ceiling in the bar area, but...

Wait staff a bit slow to follow-up on drinks. attitude was average, okay, nothing extra. Food was temperature hot and not too spicy for us, which is good.

The atmosphere is good and the staff is friendly. The is food is good, not great. I was with a large family group and maybe they were over whelmed with the number of orders. The family had a reservation but the staff still seamed unprepared for us. The presentation was average at best.

Providing 3 distinct cuisines from a similar region of the world may be difficult to accomplish. However, the couple who own/operate this restaurant come from different parts of Central America, bringing family food traditions with them. Whether your favor runs to Mexican, Columbian or Cuban cuisine, good food awaits. We dined there with a dozen super seniors in a dinner... More
