The smell of the fajitas filled the filled restaurant. It was a Friday evening and there were big family parties 20+ enjoying conversation among three generations and the best Mexican food in the Antelope Valley. With more than half of the restaurant's tables filled with the happy families and it was fun to watch the serving crew turn it on!... More

Got lost by using Tripadvisor App Map which incorrectly mapped their newer 15th St address onto 20th St, so watch for that, but the good comfy Mexican food and margaritas and friendly service were worth it!

Best Mexican food anywhere is Lancaster, CA. Been going in there for over 41 years and NOT once have I had a bad experience. Love the old building, but much more room in new location.

I'm not a big Mexican food eater, I generally only like my mother's enchilida's, especially her sauce she puts on them. Well I finially found a place I enjoy and their sauce is as close to my mother's as I've tasted. I go there alot now and the service is excellent and they treat you like family. I highly recommend...

Eat here often usually lunch but with friends for dinner this time. Have been eating here for 40+ years. Good service, good food, good prices. No hidden costs! Lunch and dinner include salad and your drink in the price. None of this 2.75 for an ice tea after you order your meal. Now that is a deal!

The restaurant serves food best described as Mexican inspired, as the food lacks a traditional flavor. Perhaps the best indication of the food type is the bizarre salsa that is given with chips. My family described it as tomato paste. I feel it was more like tapatio with tomato paste. The ambiance is also Mexican inspired. Look atthe items hanging... More

Moved from South Texas recently and was very impressed with this Mexican restaurant! Food, drinks, service better than most! The place moved recently we were told. Will definitely be back!

We went to this Mexican restaurant based on the hotel clerk's suggestion. We were not disappointed. We had 20 kids and 20 parents. Everything went perfect. No confusion on checks or food. Pretty fast too, considering the size of our group. Very reasonably priced.

We went on the advice of our hotel desk clerk, and were not disappointed. It's in a little strip mall and easy to overlook. The staff are very friendly and service was good. They use quality ingredients; you can sense this in the beef and chicken that they serve. Portions are huge. The veggie soup with meatballs is a real... More
