Not worth stopping for.

The food was okay, bland, but edible and that is why it got two stars instead of one. The service was not even worth one star, however. We ate lunch at 1:30 on a Monday and it wasn't crowded but for some reason after our food was delivered and the waitress never came back. No refills, no asking how... read more

We had dinner with a friend, and the server was kind and exceptionally fast. Our meal was hot and flavorful and the portion size was enormous. How can anybody complain on these prices, go down the street and you would be shocked to see other places financially raping you for a meal. When we are in Palm Springs this place... More

In Palm Springs for the day. Went to lunch with family. They recommended Tlaquepaque for lunch. The out of five orders only one was correct. The food was mediocre and the service was slow. I would not recommend this place.

First rate home cooked Mexican specialties. Simple, casual dining room popular with locals--lots of regulars due to the really good food. Prices are excellent in a town where dining out is expensive--superior value. Friendly service. Great choice for lunch or a casual dinner. Across the street from the main bus stop on Baristo.

Our friends highly recommended this restaurant as being the best Mexican restaurant In Palm Springs. We spend an average of four weeks in Cabo San Lucas each year and were disappointed in their menu selections. The Cadillac margarita was tiny and mostly margarita mix. My husband had a shrimp dish which he felt was average, nothing special. I had the... More

This is definitely one of the better Mexican restaurants in town. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. All's good.

It is a short drive or 10-15 minute walk from Warm Sands and is used by many Mexicans as well as other locals and out-of-towners. Food is delicious and very authentic while being very reasonably priced. We never visit Palm Springs without having lunch there.

Returning to an old favorite but in a new location was a BIG disappointment. The atmosphere has a "slightly" Mexican flavor but more like an old "Denny's". The old location had ambiance of a locals Mexican eatery but this one missed the boat of any ambiance. Noisy, sterile, and the staff was much more ambivalent to the needs of the... More

We discovered this place on Sunny Dunes rd. Now they have moved to a new location to include table service. O.M. G what flavors. The best hidden gem in Palm Springs.

If I didn't know what Mexican food was supposed to taste like, then I guess I could be fooled by this place. They have moved to a new location and I think they left all their good recipes back at the old place.
