A great Mexican restaurant place to relax

This place is jury a tad hard to navigate to, but worth the small effort. Great welcoming staff and drink selection out of this world, with a food menu to compliment it. Better that another few in the same area.

We go here often from our office for lunch. There is a bit of a wait during peak hours especially during weekdays and if you happen to have a large group. I enjoy the food(Enchiladas)here. As with many bay area restaurants, there seems to be a shortage of water however. Please do not take 10 minutes between water runs, just... More

We came here for our team white elephant gift exchange. There were about 25 of us. The service was good. Food was good, with the exception of the beef and chicken on the nachos. The beef was tough and the chicken had some fatty parts. Overall made me think they are not that authentic and high quality although the place... More

Everyone's food looked very good. I went safe with a enchilada, with rice and beans. My husband loved this restaurant. It is a little higher class than your average Mexican restaurant. I loved the decor.

Came here for a late lunch before the 49ers game. Although fairly empty it is a nice and big restaurant with friendly staff and good service. Ordered the lunch special which was Chicken Enchiladas with chipotle sauce.. It was good but nothing special. Could've been a little warmer for me. Portions were of adequate size. Salsa was flavorful having asked... More

Really don't understand how this place got so many good reviews. The restaurant is huge and must cater to the many businesses nearby that need a quick place for lunch, speed was the only plus. Our dinners were brought out luke warm and although they were what we ordered, nothing special. The salsa was good, don't splurge for the guac... More
