Good Mexican in Groveland!

Had a combo plate hidden on the back page of the menu. A taco, chicken enchilada, chili relleno. Relleno was really good. More food than I could eat. Very cold Negra Modello!

We ended up here after looking at one or two other restaurants and were pleasantly surprised. Nice wait staff and cold beer at good price. I had the fish tacos that were excellent. Chips not very tasty, very bland but free.

We finished a long day of hiking in Yosemite and were looking for a nice place to recharge. The service was very friendly and quick. Nice salsa with our chips, but only a smallish quantity of salsa.

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.
