We were really disappointed with this experience. The reviews were really good, so we were excited about another great Mexican experience in California.

This restaurant has been in Concord for over 30 years and it continues to be our favorite Mexican restaurant. Nice patio and atmosphere. They also have one in Martinez with a beautifull banquet facility.
