This is a very good Mexican Restaurant serving a nice selection of mexican dishes in a pleasant and unpretentious atmosphere. The process of ordering at the counter and self seating is efficient, the food is tasty and well prepared. This is our second visit to the restaurant and although it was a Sunday and full of people (always a good... More

One waits in line to place and order and gets a number to place on the table so that the food can find them. The food is fresh and authentic. The shrimp have been overcooked even after returning to get a new batch.

Pretty much self service, order at counter and get your own drinks from the case. Not very clean and I got sick from the chicken enchiladas but no one else in the party did. I will not go back.

We have been disappointed lately because of the change in hours...dinner only now. But we were downright insulted when they started charging for chips and salsa, and same price for salsa only. The food is bland, so salsa is necessary, and so the cost of something like fajitas goes up by I think 1.79$. Although we have eaten there for... More

Had our dinner here. Good tasty food by the same folk who run the Taco truck. Filling so you won't need an appetiser. Good value beer pitcher at $14.

This restaurant was right next to the cabins where we were staying Fern Grove. We love Mexican food, but this wasn't traditional Mexican food. It was kinda bland. It was just okay. The price is good for the amount of food you get. Was a little disappointed because my husband and I love Mexican food.

They are only open in the evening now. So no lunch service. They have a killer taco salad, yummy cheese enchiladas, and great chile rellenos. They also serve the bottle coke and pepsi from Mexico. The staff are very kind, caring, and helpful. My daughter loves their burritos.

Just OK Mexican food. A bit of a letdown. Kinda average american-mex. We hoped for better. Oh well. Not bad, mind you, but generic.
