We were looking for good Mexican food, but with a gluten intolerance, it is sometimes hard to find spots. We liked the prices, the menu looked great and the waitress was nice. The downside, they were not educated in "food intolerances" and could not tell me what did or did not contain gluten. I would suggest for them to become... More

Hot and tasty. Judging by other reviews, part of the equation is knowing what to expect. Our service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was hot and tasty, not gourmet or strictly authentic, but good and nice sized portions. Reasonably priced, I'd certainly be happy to go back.

Our son took the whole family here for dinner when we arrived in California for his post-Christmas wedding. There were nine of us and we received timely service. We sat outside on the patio in the evening. It was warmed by heaters and the ambiance was lovely. The food was excellent...everyone seemed pleased with their selections. I had delicious carnitas...

We have gone here in years past and it never has been bad. We have had various items on the menu over the years and we have found them to be pretty authentic Tex-Mex with generous, tasty portions. Tequilla bar is fun if you want to have an open air happy hour some afternoon. The staff have always been very... More
