The patio ambiance is great. An oasis in the desert....sort of. Very comfortable and relaxing and plenty of shade and misters to help cool things down. We ordered one of the restaurants specials, Tampico and a side of asparagus. The asparagus was great. And the Tampico was also......with the exception of the carne asada steak. While we'd like it well... More

We were a party of 15 and walked-in without reservations for lunch during spring break. The hostess was great she seated us within 5 minutes and took us to a nice private space in the back. Our server was awesome, he joked with our kids, made recommendations that we all loved and had just an overall super attitude. We will... More

We had a party for several people here. Poor service; just average food; over priced for what it was; certainly nothing special to set it apart from other nearby restaurants

We ate here with on the street fair night. We had a reservation, but there were still plenty of open tables. Service was good. Prices were ok. The food was just fair. I would think this would be a good place for drinks and apps before you go somewhere else for dinner.

While we have had good experiences here in the past, and the margaritas are really good, this time the waiter said the sangria was really good, so we tried a jug. $32 and it was terrible. One slice of orange in the glass, in an area where citrus is everywhere, was so disappointing. My seafood tacos were good, and large... More

We stopped in here without a reservation on Village Fest night. It was crowded but we got a table with plenty of room for the five of us. I don't know the name of our waiter, big guy, with a gold front tooth. So much fun and very, very good with recommendations. The food was a bit spicy for me... More

Loved the smoked chicken enchiladas and with wild coyote margaritas. The patio area is lovely, but make a reservation to ensure you get a spot.

Wow! For larger men who enjoy eating, it's not too often when we both leave part of our meal behind.

Prior to going to the Thursday evening Palm Springs VillageFest, we decided to have Mexican dinner and drinks. Margaritas and Tostadas for two were excellent. Having the insight to reserve a table for two in advance, allowed us to be located at a quieter outdoor location. It was a very relaxing and pleasant dinner experience!

I always have to stop here on every trip to Palm Springs for their margaritas. Just a warning. Be very careful on how many you have. They are very potent. Food is pretty good also. I had their steak burrito and was not disappointed.
