We only ate the Mexican but there is quite a diverse selection. The chile verde was excellent. The pork chunks were tender and the sauce was special. This was a $14.00 meal. The steak fajitas were also great and this was a $16.00 meal. The enchilada verdes were less impressive, a $14.00 meal. As for the beverages, the mojito was... More

I've been here three times, the last time as a guest. I passed. 'Nuff said. Didn't want my friends to waste money on me. They were only eating there because they had a coupon. They went into sticker shock when they got the bill, their one cocktail each having negate the value priced meal.

Appetizers and main Mexican dishes were delicious as were the Cadillac margueritas. Service was excellent. Entertainment (singer) was a little too loud for diners hoping to converse.

Visited this place with my wife while holidaying in Palm Springs in July and can only say I will not be back. On entering the restaurant first impressions are that someone had forgotten to switch on the lights, very dark and foreboding probably done so that you cannot see what you are eating! Started of with a large margarita which... More

I have ate here 2 times already in the past with friends usually 4 to 5 people. We love their chips and salsa. The live singing is great especially when you know the lyrics. Both times we have had good experiences can't say great. The first time I went was around 8pm. The tables by the bar were packed but... More

The restaurant has great Mexican food in a garden that looks like it is straight out of Japan. The menu is from all over the world, but we stuck with the Mexican food. The fiesta margarita was awesome. I have issues with tequila and there was no problem here. We then had nachos that were excellent and I had the... More

After visiting several Mexican restaurants in the Palm Springs area, seeking a desirable place to hold a rehearsal dinner for approximately 40 people, my husband and I literally stumbled upon this restaurant while driving by. The exterior was very well kept with plenty of parking, which was important after driving around downtown for half an hour looking for a parking... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant and had a great experience! Our waitress Magdalen had knowledge of the menu and suggested things that we should try. I had the two item combo with a shredded beef taco and a chile rellano and my wife had a Carnegie Masada taco and a shrimp enchilada. Everything was excellent and so... More
