Had dinner here our first night in town. Food was very good. This is a good Mexican restaurant with a nice selection on the menu. Service was excellent. This is also the only place I found in the downtown area with good prices and a few local beers on tap at a reasonable price. I would stop here every night... More

This is a place I have walked past many times. Yet, after hearing a couple friends talk about the food while at another event, I wanted to try it. The restaurant is centrally located in downtown PS. Inside there are a handful of booths and the bar, but the bulk of seating is outside. It's a good spot if you... More

I'm not sure if I went to the same restaraunt as some of these reviews, because the customer service here is ABOMINABLE and the food, well below average. We poured ourselves water since we weren't greeted by our server after sitting for quite some time. And even after requesting water, we did not get any. And that's only the water...... More

My boyfriend and I eat here every time we go to Palm Springs. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and the location is incredible.

I came here with a group of people for dinner one night and had a great time, the outdoor seating is nice and not cramped for large groups and is great for people watching along Palm Canyon Drive. The food was your basic "Tex Mex" I would say... with some other elements thrown in and quite a lot of seafood.... More

We came here as a group of 12 for a late dinner and put a bunch of tables together. The staff didn't make an issue of us highjacking a bunch of seats and were very friendly. We didn't have a wait, even if it was a Friday night and we did not have a reservation. Overall the food was average.... More

I wasn't excited or impressed with my food. However , for the record, another table near me really liked the place. I think the location is a strong factor in the appeal of this Mexican restaurant. There is a lot of outside seating and that is appealing to any Palm Springs visitor
