Stopped here our first evening in Palm Springs. Sat outside, nice table, good people watching spot. Enjoyed excellent Happy Hour prices on Margaritas and wine. Food was delicious, large quantities, had to take some home. We should have shared. Service was good, very accommodating.

We stopped by on a Sunday evening and sat at the bar. They had a pretty good happy hour menu and the prices were very reasonable compared to some of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. The tacos were actually pretty good and the beer was cold. What more could you ask for? Would definitely recommend this place.

The Calamari was long strips not the cheesy circles it came with a spicey dipping sauce again off the chart good.... More

We really enjoyed the meal at this downtown restaurant. The staff was very attentive and the setting was nice. We had a table in the garden area near the front so that we could observe the activity on the sidewalk. The meal was delicious. Very fresh tasting and delicious. Of the three Mexican restaurants we ate at while in town,... More

Loved the house margaritas, and at happy hour 4p-7p they're $7.50 for a large. Queso was really good, too, not just the usual yellow cheese, but hot white with a bit of chili along the top - served in a pewter dish to keep it hot until you're through (it's a lot for 2 people). Carnitas were a bit dry... More

We chose to sit outside (because we had our dog with us). Very friendly. Lots to choose from on the menu. We had the Quesadilla and the Burrito. As frequent visitors to Mexico, it was excellent. Good service, very quick. We will definitely go back again.

Great service..Great food....Very reasonable. We ate here 2 nights and both times, food was excellent and well priced. They also have a happy hour if you get in there before 6. A 2 minute walk from Palm Mountain Resort, where we stayed.

The menu choices were certainly all over the board from fine Mexican dining, to the not to fine dining, or what American's would expect from a Mexican restaurant. They had seating upstairs and you could sit overlooking E. Palm Canyon Drive, or downstairs at street level. The atmosphere was great, the service was great, and I would most likely go... More
