Trust me. I know my Mexican food. Grew up in CA eating the best of the best. My mother-in-law still makes her tortillas from scratch with a mano and metate. The food here is excellent. You can tell the quality of a Mexican restaurant by the simple things like rice, beans, and salsa. Everything here tasted homemade. My only regret... More

Never a bad meal in here and the Margaritas are fabulous. Friendly family business and having tried most of the Mexicans in the valley this has to be the best. Good value and great fresh food. Try the fiesta guacamole it's dynamite! Can't wait to go back.

This is a gem. A real bargain amidst too many over priced Paseo area eateries. Small and a bit off the path, but worth the find. The menu is extensive and the food very authentic. The bar is small, noisy, and understated, but that's what the real Mexico is all about. Awesome margaritas. The food will not disappoint. Very reasonable... More

We tried two of the house specialties and were very impressed. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and the pork was juicy and flavorful. Tortilla soup was also terrific. Service was attentive but not obsequious.

This is a Mexican Restaurant. Stopped in for Happy Hour from 3PM to 5PM. This saved us $1.50 on the wine and $4.00 on the food menu from the BAR ONLY. The menu has a good amount of choices. The drinks were fine and the food was delicious. The portions were good size and you could get them loaded with... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff here. We had a large group(corvette Club) of over 70 people and they were on top of everything!! They were able to print special menus and we were able to choose from at least 5 items. Everything was delicious and very reasonable. We also had the patio all to ourselves.......very nice!!... More

Went with friends based on other reviews and was not disappointed. We were pleased that many of the staff from the now closed Armando's work here. I was surprised that they remembered us. Our server, Duke was fun to talk to and he made great recommendations on food and drink. We always judge Mexican restaurants based on the salsa which... More

Place can get busy, so best to go early. Service was very attentive, staff muy friendly. Food is quite tasty with your usual Mexican "go-to" dishes available. For something differnt, try the char-grilled squid (skip the mayo sauce and just use the fresh lemon). Great chips & salsas too.
