Our first visit was enhanced by the great server who was very personable and friendly (owners daughter). It was her service that brought us back the next day for menudo. The service the next day - ehhh - he was there because he had to work. The menudo was good and a bit different than the midwestern mexican version. The... More

The food is just okay. It's not horrible or anything, just not anything stellar. The service is always great however and the owners are super nice people! They also own another restaurant in Guadalupe just a few miles south of this one. I haven't been, but would suspect that the food would be more authentic there.

Terrible! The staff not friendly, tables dirty. Chips not good, old tasting. After we ordered we waited at least over 1/2hour for our food and when she brought it my son had ordered something with beans and they put a salad on there to replace the beans, she said they ran out of beans! How the hell do u run... More

That's about it. The rice and beans were bland and for a Mexican restaurant that's surprising. Would not go back there.

This is the old "Viva Mexico"... and has new owners. To start the host was rude and the waitress kept arguing with the cook. She moved very slow. (We waited 40 minutes for breakfast on a 1/2 full place). The kitchen was full of 10-13 year old boys eating standing up in view of the patrons. No chips and salsa... More

Well we were in town this weekend and I really wanted those so we went. Well our waitress took our order without writing it down (some can get away with this) but that... More

We were driving up US 1 (PCH) through Pismo Beach after seeing the Monarch Butterfly Grove, and wanted a quick lunch. This is a little, obviously family-run place right on PCH/Pomeroy in the center of Pismo - it was brothers and sisters working the front/dining room and I assume other family members in the kitchen. Used to be some kind... More

My fiancé and I wanted to try a new restaurant, this was it. My food was okay at best but my fiancés was not . He has food poisoning and we are both disappointed. The one good thing I can say is the service was excellent.
