Nice Decor, Decent Food

I've had meals of varying quality here; not of them bad and none of them great. On my last visit, I had the carnitas tacos. The meat was pretty good; juicy and tasty. The tacos were large and had plenty of meat, lettuce and cheese. The accompanying rice and beans I found to be mediocre. The... read more

I can't, I just can't recommend this place at all. The food is well below mediocre and while it may seem that most food like this is in Concord, I'll gladly list a few places that blow this one out of the water. Bland is the name of the game here, and bland mexican food just can't happen. The service... More

I have never in my life felt so disrespected. To think that this was my favorite restaurant for YEARS and to be treated the way I was today makes me beyond sad. I drive 25 minutes across town to order my favorite BBQ quesadillas to get home and open my box with dry quesadillas and no BBQ sauce. Usually I... More

Eaten here a couple of times and each time found the food underwhelming (a friend picked this place). I have to say that the service is fine, prompt but not overly friendly or welcoming. The restaurant has nice curb appeal and from the outside appears promising, but failed to deliver for me. The food presentation is lacking. Adding some salad... More

We have been here several times. This visit was a birthday celebration. As always, the food was delicious, and plentiful. You could easily share a plate, with your mate. The chili rellanos, shrimp tacos, and the nachos, we added carnitas, were all fabulous! Just like the food, the adult beverages, are just as good. The wait staff are excellent. Very... More

The service, atmosphere, and food were always worth waiting for, but not so much after the move. The quality and flavor has not given us a reason to continue eating here. On the up-side we discovered El Tapatio to give us a destination for Mexican food in town.

Food was very good and service was excellent. I recomend this restaurant for it's variety of mexican food selections and the greeting by the owner who is very enthusastic about his place.

The service is always good if not great. But the food has taken such a noise dive! Before they moved into their current location, everything was great, spicy, and full of flavor. Now I can make better Mexican food at home. If you want good Mexican, go to any of the taquerias in the area and definitely skip this place.
