Good food and service

Went in the late afternoon. Food was served right away and it was very good. Salsa was delicious. Husband had a chimichanga which he said was really good. I had a cheese enchilada plate with tomatillo sauce which was very good. Good atmosphere and good food.

Good Mexican food and although they aren't directly on the lake anymore, they have a better location and there is more room for banquets and large groups. The place is bright and clean and the food is good and reasonable. Get the combination plate, you won't be disappointed.

We came from southern CA to visit friends who live close by. The restaurant was nice size and didnt have typical Mexican style decor, but was more upscale. There was s nice patio but too cool to take advantage of the great view of the lake across the street. There were nine of us for dinner and everyone seemed to... More

This place has reopened at a new location in Lakeport - it is now across the street from the lake. The new location has plenty of seating inside and the outside area will be wonderful in the warmer months. Our dinner was just fine with comfortable and familiar Mexican food offerings at reasonable prices. The menu has a lot of... More

While on a trip to Lake County this past week, we had the pleasure of dining at TNT's in Lakeport. TNT's used to be down by the lake on 1st St., but moved to a great new location on Lakeshore Drive, a couple of miles north of the former place. What an upgrade! We had lunch and dinner there, and...

Location is not as nice as previous location overlooking the lake. This one has outdoor dining, but you have a fairly busy street between you and the lake. The food makes up for it to a large extent. Primarily Mexican food which is delicious!!!

The place has been sold. The location is precarious due to the proximity to the edge of the lake. It's prone to flooding and needs a lot of work to remedy this issue. The food was so-so, the servers underpaid and overworked but the view from the outdoor patio was lovely. Good luck to the new owners, I wish them... More

The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only problems is that they are moving out. But just north of town a mile or so they say. I hope they bring their cook with them.

Where do I start? The server was rude, slow, and not even trying to pretend like she wanted to help us. The food was poor at best and and the decor abrasive. Do not waste your time or money for I cannot get either of mine back. The Taqueria is Laos and bounds above this place for half the price!
