Flavorful Dinner

Their chicken was so favourful. Both my partner and I were blown away. The guacamole was ok but not the best. But everything else was so good.

From the beginning everything was good. The tortilla chips and two salsas - red and green - seemed home made and delicious. We had chicken fahitas (should have ordered only one for two as it was large) also had a shrimp fahita. Both very tasty. Margeritas, although served in float glasses, we're very good.

I had tacos al pastor and the queso fondido with chorizo. It was just as good as fresh tacos from a stabd Guadalajara. There isn't much ambiance but the food was authentic, delicious and very affordable. They were generous with the tequila in the margaritas too

There is no ambience and there was a funny smell when we walked in. Our server was very nice and we ordered 7 tacos, rice and beans and a vegetarian burrito. The taco meat was tasteless and contained bones and lots of fat. The burrito consisted of shredded lettuce and a small amount of rice. Truly disappointing experience.

Stumbled across this restaurant while looking for lunch after shopping downtown. It was full, which is a sign I look for when I'm new in town. My Carne Asada was tender, and the rice and beans tasty. They provided two salsas with the chips, and I liked both equally. Service was prompt. I wish I lived closer so I could... More

Always we make a visit to this Restaurant. Good food, easy on the wallet. This place is not elegant dining, just sit down and eat. There are no over priced items on their menu. Quick service, you will be pleased. It is worth the trip.

Good solid Mexican fare. We ate in their old location and this is a big improvement in physical setting while keeping the same delicious food. I especially like the shrimp or chicken with garlic. Very convenient to downtown Palm Springs, too.

The cheese was processed, chalky tasting and not melted on two of five meals ordered at the table. A well a grease literally pooled in the cheese on top my friends bowl of chili. The service was good and the margaritas were good. There was little to no atmosphere.

Good basic Mexican Food. Some may complain about the atmosphere but the food won't fail you. How many places can you get a really good lengua (tongue) soft shell taco for a couple of bucks? Service is always attentive, prompt, and efficient. When the juke box gets going, you'll feel like you're south of the border.

This restaurant just got better with the move to South Palm Canyon. The food is still great Mexican and the prices have stayed in the inexpensive range for such great fresh food. Menu is quite varied with many things to choose from. They are open for breakfast right on through dinner. Easy parking and pleasant service. Jalisco style cooking. Many... More
