Unfortunatly all I can say that the restaurant did not meet our expectation. I was expecting authentic mexican food and it did not deliver.

We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. We have taken other family members here and they have enjoyed the food as well. The service is very quick and the servers are always polite.

We were very happy with the food and very flavorful. We have never been disappointed with this place. The staff are very welcoming and is also a family environment. The margaritas are to die for. The Chilie verde was very close to the ethnic roots it wasn't to Americanized. It was very good. Always happy with this place.

Very busy restaurant. The shrimp in garlic sauce a disappointment. Shrimp we're tough and chewy. Sauce was excellent. Salsa and chips great.. This is seafood restaurant. I must of ordered the wrong plate!

We was reading all the good reviews so we decided to try this place for dinner today. We had 2 senior dinners, the chips and salsa were good, the waiter was nice, the food was good and served hot. They were busy and our service was still good. For the price this was a good meal and we would return.

I ate here recently while traveling thru Visalia. The food was very good and was served extremely hot. The flavor was very good and the serving size was perfect. The chips and salsa were also good.

Its not authentic but its ok for a american Mexican restaurant. The first time we went there everything seem very delicious, however we decided to go a couple of more times and the cooking was not consistent. Seems like the condiments were to strong over powering the flavor in the food. Overall the restaurant is nice and is so is... More

clean- nice waiting staff- especially the young men are very attentive- have to say i keep coming back because food is always consistent- you cant beat that as i hate it when my food tastes different depending on the cook working that day which happens at alot of restaurants- A+++!
