Cold

Very Good Red Snapper Tacos rather gourmetish. It was cold in the restaurant. Heat was turned off. Plate was cold. Rice and beans were cold. I had to put my hat on during dinner. Foul odor coming from the drains in the kitchen.

The chili colorado was delicious. Served with rice and beans, this dish will delight your palette and fill you up with tender cubes of flavorful pork.

I had some burrito called the Patrona... I really liked it, but maybe it was because i skipped breakfast and it was now 2pm.

Very good Mexican cuisine. Fast, friendly service, reasonable prices. And when they tell you that a sauce is hot, believe them! Actually, their diablo sauce has a wonderful depth of flavor. All dishes prepared on premises.

There are not a lot of good restaurants in Groveland but this is definitely one of the better ones. The service and ambience are good and the food is mostly good too. We tried a few of their entrees and they were good though a little too cheesy. Not a bad place overall.

Due to mixed reviews, I hesitated going to this restaurant. I can't believe how much I loved this place! All the food from the chips and salsa to the steak, sopes, and chili relleno was fantastic. The place is cozy and friendly and our server was sweet. The food was served quickly. We will definitely be back!

If you're traveling to Yosemite on Rt 120, this restaurant is about an hour outside the park. It's small, and apparently family owned/run. Food is wonderful and prices are reasonable. We always stop there en route to Yosemite.
