Signs said "Award Winning" so we tried it. Friday night crowd was there for the conversation as well as the food--lots of groups. Fairly loud so you have to speak up. Not an inexpensive Mexican restaurant, either. Waiter friendly and efficient. Food arrived quickly. Complimentary chips and salsa, of course. Salsa was definitely on the hot side and it filled...

We met family and friends for dinner. Loved the atmosphere and décor. Lot's of families and celebrations. Service was fair to good, had to flag employees down to get chips and salsa refills. Food was good, hubby would have liked more spices in his pork Yucatan. I am on a special diet and spoke at length to the waiter about... More

Still good food but seems like restaurant is not operating as well since well-respected died in a tragic traffic collision.

We've been coming here for years. After taking a family member around SF all afternoon, we decided to stop in around 8PM for dinner. The place was about half full. Plenty of empty tables. We headed for an empty booth. Seated probably 10 minutes and were never brought menus. My husband got up and picked up 3 for us to... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the Hotel Villa Montes. The food was plentiful and very nice. We ordered the enchiladas and fajitas but found it odd the fajitas did not come with the usual flour tortillas?!. Sat in the booth area and the restaurant is well decorated in the usual Mexican theme. Good service and very attentive.

Our hotel recommended Don Pico's for the food and margaritas. Food yes. Excellent dungeness crab enchiladas with verde sauce. D'Lish! I was disappointed with the Margarita. It was to limey and light on the tequila. You know when you have an excellent Margarita, it's hard to except anything else. I switched to the Modelo draft which was a great addition... More

Great selection of menu items. Good seafood. Large portions and great service. Mexican food is my jam, and this place is on the top of my list. Don't expect typical TexMex or Mexican fare, this is much much better.

location is a bit odd and the building not impressive, but that didn't matter much. inside was just fine, and the server very nice. 2 tap beers ran out while we were there, which limited choices. service was a tad on the slow side, and there weren't that many folks dining. food was very good- special was sea bass 'stuffed'...

My husband & I stopped here tonight for our last dinner in California before we return to Albuquerque. I ordered the Dungeness crab enchiladas with butter squash sauce and my husband ordered the corn enchilada plate (they were out of the munudo). The portions are huge and we should have split the plate, but it was very good. The sangria... More
