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

We ate outside on the patio on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Our food was wonderful. The best Mexican we've had in a long time!

Loved this restaurant! Meal, drinks and service were great! Portions were huge and we could've easily taken half our meal home for lunch the next day. Also loved the outdoor dining under the heaters.

Overall the it is overall it is an enjoyable place, but it leaves a little bit to be noteworthy. The level of service is inconsistent. We were initially greeted promptly and our drink order was delivered in a timely manner. After that things kind of fell apart. It took some effort to have the wait staff refill the chips and...

Being from Canada on vacation sitting on a patio on the main drag in Palm Springs with Margaritas and appetizers, while the temperature at home is well below freezing, how could anything be better! Recorded Mariachi music playing in the background really made this a quaint place for an afternoon snack. Can't remember the name, but it was chorizo with... More
