Great Atmosphere, great food and great salad

We joined 4 of our friends here for dinner on Saturday night. Nice patio dining next to Granite Creek. Excellent service - very attentive staff. Excellent salsa - both red and green and we all agreed it was good. I really liked the fact that soup or salad was part of the meal and that salad... read more

I ordered taquitos (flautas?) which were ok. Not bad, not overwhelmingly memorable. Beans and rice were good. We ate on the back patio, which is cluttered with a lot of junk - it could use a tidying up and tables could use a coat of paint. Service was good, wait staff was attentive. Food was just average however and I'm... More

This restaurant is a bit hidden from everything else, but please don't pass it up! Great food and great service. I highly recommend it.

We decided to try this place just to see what kind of Mexican food it served. The salsa was good, but the rest of our meal could have been better. The place was dirty and as another reviewer stated, you could see directly into a dirty kitchen. The server was pleasant, but she took breaks in between serving customers at... More

When we commented on the quality of the chicken in our entrees, the owner responded it was high quality. It was like carcass scrapings -- very poor quality.

Ben takes good care of his guests with great food margs and reasonable prices. Hidden behind the Dinner Bell but worth the search

All but tasteless. Heavy on the "glop" (you know, the huge melted cheese thingy they put on top to add...dunno...something). Salsa is watery, little taste. Red sauces are just hot, nothing flavorful there. Prices are really exorbitant for what they serve you. How does this food come from the folks from Dinner Bell...???

I really love the salsa, my enchilada was good and the rice tasted freshly made. I just can't get passed how dirty the whole place looks and that you can see into the piled up kitchen doesn't help. The margarita wasn't good as all I could taste was the premade mix and it wasn't cold enough.

It's behind the Dinner Bell Cafe on the creek, just a short walk from the plaza. The food is plentiful and homemade. The pork green burrito is lighly spiced and delicious. The evening we were there the special was an ancho chile and beef dinner - superb.

We tried this restaurant because of the good reviews. We were amazed how awful the food was and the service was not very friendly at all. Not sure where those good reviews came from. We were so hoping it would be good.
