Sooo good!

Our food was sooo good! Building and décor are lack luster but the food makes up for it! Food was yummy, large portions, and not over-priced. Highly recommend!

I finally found a great chile relleno at this cute & unique place. Of many Mexican restaurant in the area, I haven't yet found great chile relleno until I discover it here! Great staff. Salsa was served with tortilla chips & lemon/lime wedges which was a first I've seen.

Have eaten here several times. Additionally, they catered my son's wedding over 10 years ago. You must try the Guacamole because it is the best. Small place, away from the usual Palm Spring crowds. Wine and beer only, but the wine Margaritas are good.

I work close to this place and so eat their food often. It's always fresh and delicious! The place is FILLED with Mexican people at lunch which makes me think that the food must be very authentic. I love anything they serve with chicken. It's a small place which is always packed which is okay.... I'd rather eat in a... More

It's very informal but great food! We always rate Mexican food by specific dishes and this restaurant doesn't disappoint. The Chili Releno's are the best we've ever had! It's located very close to the airport and does a great business with locals

Neighborhood Mexican in a suburban shopping center. Plenty of free parking. Odd arrangement inside, but you can see the staff cooking. We had two different kinds of quesadillas. Very good and large portions. Total bill, including two drinks, about $30.

Was pleasantly surprised at food quality at this funky place (not sure what door to enter). Fajitas and enchiladas were flavorful.
