The welcome is good, the food good and the Margaritas excellent. if you ask for advice about the tequilas you will get some interesting and knowledgeable advice what to try. Very much a local haunt although it is not the cheapest Mexican in the area. Live guitar from a gentleman who has played there for over 20 years.

Food was very good. More authentic and well prepared than most in area. Service was good but slow, but the mood was relaxed, so that wasn't all bad.

Took some co workers out for happy hour. Great margarita's. The happy hour menu is a great value. The $1 tacos are delicious. I have also had dinner here and the inside ambiance is great and the food is top notch.

We decided to try something out of our usual tacos and enchiladas. Had their Pescado Vera Cruz and it was really good. The fish was a generous portion and cooked perfectly. The sauce was as described. Very nice. My husband ordered the beef fajitas made with filet mingon which turned out to be enough for both of us. Our only... More

Visited several times during our stay in Palm Desert, always for happy hour, good for American beer and guacamole, with some good 1 dollar tacos. It's in a good location, patio heaters that were not needed during our visit. Haven't been later in the evening but would definitely recommend it for happy hour.

Begining with the most generous margaritas, moving into awesome guacamole with fresh chips and then the Beef Tamales like you have never tasted. I have eaten tamales at many restaurants but these are chuck full of beef and very little masa. They are fabulous

This past Cinco de Mayo event was the worst organized event i have seen in a long time. We seated ourselves on the patio and not wait staff came to take our orders. I went inside and found a lady on the phone who eventually came to take our orders. UNACCEPTABLE! The drink orders were not filled as ordered. We... More

My husband & I ate here on a busy Saturday night. The patio looked lovely and had heaters but it was a bit chilly so we dined inside. Even though it was crowded we had good service. Don Diego's shines in the margarita department and they served a delicious caesar salad. The supply of salsa was endless and tasty. Our... More

We ate here on recommendation from a friend. It was 3:00 on a Friday afternoon (happy hour). We wanted dinner, but the waiter only gave us a happy hour menu. The bus boy gave us real menus. The margaritas were good. The food adequate. The waiter horrible. I gave the bus boy a tip for himself.
