Best grill in Palm Springs

We revisited this restaurant on our 20th wedding anniversary. We had previously visited on the trip when we became engaged. It was as wonderful as I remembered. The menu had changed, but the margaritas were still fantastic! My husband and I each tried different enchiladas and then shared. We... read more

Delicious margaritas, guacamole and salsa. Hot chips seemed super fresh. Attentive friendly service by everyone. I am sure this staff had been overrun by all kinds of people. The tables were clean, the silverware and glassware were clean. Staff were well groomed and were very accommodating although we weren't going to have an entire meal. We even went back a... More

We liked the atmosphere and the seafood salad was amazing but I didn't realize that they allowed smoking on their patios and that ruined my second visit. Would not return because of that but gave the food a good rating.

If you're looking for the best Mexican food in Palm Springs, don't overlook this eatery on Palm Canyon Drive. The selections are incredible, and the margaritas are out of this world!!!

A great Mexican diner in the downtown area of Palm Springs, the chips and salsa were perfect, the chicken fajitas were the best, a great outdoor patio and excellent service. This is my second time here and I will be back again for sure!..

Having been to Mexico, I found this food to be very similar to that that was in Mexico. The patio gives you a very Mexican vibe, the food is delicious and the location is convenient and within walking distance from everything. I would definitely go again!

Made an online reservation for Valentines Day at 3:30pm on the front patio area but stated that any time from 3-4P would be ok as we would be in the area and left my cell number. As I didn't get a call I stopped in at 3p to confirm. The hostess, a heavy set strawberry blond, did indeed have our... More

Even the guitarist couldn't cover for the bad margaritas. Frijtas were served on a skillet and were cold. Maybe we hit them on a bad night!

Service was slow. Waiter blamed the kitchen for delay. Seemed like an attempt to sell more drinks. Food was OK, nothing special. Not for me.
