Family owned casual dining. Breakfast served all day (think machaca & huevos rancheros) Traditional Mexican fare, seafood specialities and a children's menu. Choose from a variety of fresh salsas. Large portions, fast friendly service. Loved by the locals for good reason.

We visited family in the area and had dinner here. The food was great and the staff equally good. Very large servings, and a large and varied menu. A little on the noisy side, but the food made it worth while. Can't wait to go back.

After a morning hiking in the redwoods, and headed down the river for SF, we were hungry for classic Mexican, and weren't disappointed. Helpful and friendly service, great tastes for a side-of-the-road taqueria. Fish tacos (tilapia) were cooked cleanly and without heavy coating; fresh chile relleno about as good as it gets for the battered version. Our rice and beans... More

Eight of us showed up here on Saturday night at 7:30 after trying to get a table at Boon and at the Garden Grill (Boon wouldn't even look at us because we were 8 people and the Garden Grill had 1 waitress for the entire restaurant!) We walked right in and got a table. They offered to wait on us... More

Food was authentic for tex mex. Not real Mexican food. Beans and rice were decent, but the main courses were dry and under seasoned. If you like Taco Bell you might like this stuff.

After days of fresh tomatoes, avocados, Brie, wine, olives, and French bread, the cheese enchilada with rice and beans hit the spot. The chile relleno was decent, the tamale was dry and the quesadilla was tiny. The other MAJOR drawback was they put to-go orders in styrofoam... Yuck. My Mexican rice tasted of styrofoam. Yuck. And, we inquired if there... More

Food was good. Restaurant was very crowded when we were there and you have to stand in line to order food. Once order was finally placed, food came fairly quickly and was good. Menu and ordering was a little confusing to a first time customer, butI would return should we be in the area again.

Our party hiked in Armstrong Woods in the morning and we were ready for food at 3pm. The place was empty when we got there but started having more customers around 4:30. I have been on a search for an excellent fish taco while on vacation. I had one in Bodega, which was traditional...in that it was fried. The beans... More

The enchiladas were well received by my wife and daughter -- not too spicy, but with a salsa bar that could dress it however you like. The veggie burrito I had was awful, with the bits of broccoli gushing out hot water with every bite. Gross. Too expensive for what it was, but that's the case with everything in Guerneville.

Easy to stop in for great Mexican on your way to the coast. There was a long line this weekend, but there was just a short wait. The staff is friendly and always make my favorite combo, Chille Rellano stuffed with Chille Verde.
