Very good, fresh food and real homemade tacos. Really good margaritas would highly recommend this place to anyone spending the night Calistoga. Waitress was very nice we didn't wait at all for a table since it was later in the night. We sat outside enjoyed the view of the little town and ate a great meal.

We always stop by here when in Calistoga. Great margaritas, and the chips and salsa are tasty. I am picky about salsa. The guacamole is also good. We love to sit out on the patio--good people watching, comfortable, even on a hot summer day. Just relaxing- they never rush you.

The service was very good and we got homemade chips and salsa for free. A very good start! The Margherita was also excellent. The food was very good and my Fajitas were a big portion.

On my bucket list has been a trip to Napa country. We decided to stay in Calistoga and our first night's dinner was a hit at this restaurant. Warm friendly smiling waitress greeted us and we chose to sit outside with trees shading our table. We had a pitcher of delicious strawberry margaritas for only $30. The fajitas with prawns... More

We stopped here with two families on our way through wine country. I'd say this is an above average Mexican eatery. The salsa was obviously fresh and home made, as were the chips. The menus are typical and what you'd expect. Food came out a bit slow, but the preparation was on and the flavors were true to the authentic... More

Nice friendly atmosphere, lively bar, very decent food. Our take out chicken fajita burrito with chips and salsa was plenty for two people. The burrito was good and ready in lightning speed. Staff was very attentive. Best of all, it was very reasonably priced compared to many dining options in Calistoga. If you just want a casual, decent meal as... More

We make sure to go here at least once while we are in Calistoga. And it is even better if it happens to be when they have the Mariachi band playing. Wonderful food and fun times.

My husband is a chef and has studied Mexican cuisine. We had the Mole Chicken, and he was VERY pleased with the meal. In addition, the Salsa Mexicana served with chips as soon as one sits down was the best salsa (fresh with chunky tomatoes) we've had in a restaurant anywhere - and we're from Texas originally where Mexican food...

Food was good, not over the top. I've had the same dishes at other places, in tourist areas for less money. Inside it's clean and comfortable but not remarkable, fairly average Mexican place. Taco salads were good but nothing I'm going to rave about or send my friends to get. Taco salads were $13 - $15 for lunch (I think... More
