Good and interesting

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.

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.

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.

We got there about 5PM just in time for Happy Hour (restricted to Patio and Bar) so it was pretty crowded but we were seated immediately at an indoor table. The Margaritas were very good (per my wife and friends). I opted for a beer. The food was served promptly, was piping hot and tasted great. We will surely return... More

I asked the waiter which of two pork dishes he would recommend and without hesitation he said the chochinita pibil. I was very glad I asked, because the meat was very tender and flavorful. My husband was delighted with his beef fajitas, perfectly cooked and full of taste. Do try this place if you would like a good Mexican meal.

Great food, generous portions but beware if sitting outside for the happy hour as there are tons of flies around
