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

Don't give this restaurant a miss if you are in Palm Springs. The menu is varied, the Mexican food excellent and the staff are so very friendly. Located centrally downtown this is a very good restaurant and one of our favourites in Palm Springs. Dine on a Wednesday night and there is great live entertainment. We will be back

Went here twice on our most recent visit to Palm Springs. The food is amazing. Your meal starts when they bring out the salsa and chips. Some of the best salsa I have ever had; spicy and full of flavour. The entrees are all very reasonably priced. I had the shrimp soft tacos both times I was there, they were... More

Me and my partner decided to eat here before seeing an evening show of the Fabulous Follies. Portion size was huge and the frozen margaritas tasty. Would recommend for someone looking for a good mexican style feast.

Sat out on the patio to enjoy happy hour. Appys were $4.95 each and were far better than the Matchbox upstairs. Had 4 appys between the 2 of us and they were adequate enough to not have dinner. The calamari frita serving was generous and they were crisp and succulent. We also enjoyed the chicken quesadillas, chicken tacos and nachos.......... More

We went to Maracas on our trip to Palm Springs a few weeks ago. The happy hour was pretty good. A few appetizers for a few dollars, big, affordable drinks. I expected a fresh homemade margarita-fresh squeezed lime juice, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and the liquors. I'm fairly certain they weren't. But the food was decent for the price.... More
