Maybe the best Mexican food in Redding

Family owned and managed. Try their shrimp or other seafood options for dinner. Try their Taco Salad for a quick lunch that is also on the healthy side. Great to have hot plates and the food stays warm through out the meal.

Festive looking place with lots of colors on the chairs and walls. Our waiter was very polite and attentive. The food was your average Mexican food but big portions and done right. My wife raved about the jalepeno

Like many others who frequent Mexican Restaurants we turn to the ‘combination plates’ it is easier, no imagination is involved, it’s comfort food, reasonably priced. Why mess with success. However it seems to be the same from one Mexican Restaurant to another. But venture out of the box, turn the page go from the back of the menu to the... More

We stopped in Redding on our way from Seattle to Bay area and needed dinner fast for the kids. Kids menu was great; affordable and good quality. The adult menu was ok, but I paid $17.95 for combo fajitas that had only 3 small shrimp and bits of may; mostly peppers and onions. Overpriced for sure. But my husband got... More

We come here frequently. The food is always good. The portions are big. The prices are good. I love that it's family owned and operated.

Went to dinner based on good reviews. The service was very good - I asked for black beans instead of refried beans with my Camarones a la Mexicana and even though the dish didn't come with beans, I got them as requested. Husband ordered his favorites from the make-your-own combo plate and enjoyed his enchilada and chile relleno. Chips and... More

Enjoyed an early dinner here before the restaurant became too crowded. Very good food and service. I had one of the shrimp main courses and it was delicious. We will be returning!

We had high expectations after reading reviews, and talking to a friend who previously ate there. The food was ok but nothing special. The service was poor. We had to ask several times for refills.
