Good food

This place was good and moderately priced. I felt I got my money's worth here. I had the carnitas platter and devoured it. Never had carnitas before but loved it here. It is a nice sit down place for family. Beer selections were really limited. Overall I would recommend stopping by if you are... read more

We usually have dinner here when we stay overnight in Ramona (we go up to see shows at Ramona Main Stage). Excellent service and wonderful food. Highly recommend.

The restaurant is on the small side and fairly noisy, Service was polite and speedy. The food was of average quality and worth the moderate price. The beer selection is limited and very mainstream in a craft-beer crazy market. They do carry a couple of craft beers at any given time. In summary: I think I would not hesitate to... More

The recent renovation of the restaurant and bar is stunning. Server was exceptional, food was fabulous and exactly what we ordered. Shrimp tacos, carnitas, ribs, speciality plate, all was great. Never felt hurried. A great place to go with friends.

The salad was wilted and tired. The BBQ chicken platter was odd but the chicken and the sweet potato was tasty. The chicken was a bit on the scrawny side and could have been cleaned a bit better. The cheese toast as a side was bizarre. The cheese was hardly melted and didn't go with the plate. Service was good.

Have to admit we were drawn in by the lighted patio, it just called out as a cute place. We were so impressed with the food, chicken tortilla soup, carnitas tacos plate, cheese dip and the chips-yum! My glass of wine was huge for the price. We will make trips back to this place-if you haven't gone you are missing... More

Everyone in town knows their salsa and chips are great, but what many don't know is they have the best blueberry pancakes on the weekends. Actually their entire breakfast menu is very good.

I don't know why this isn't ranked higher, I think it's the best Mexican food in Ramona. Nice place, nice atmosphere, friendly people.

When this restaurant opened several years back, they ran out of food st 4pm and had to close. They are still as good as the day they opened. Great Margaritas and large-size portions. Salada are great.
