Excellent Mexican Fare

This was our first time here and I was impressed! The menu is different from what we usually see at most Mexican restaurants. There was a lot of seafood but not a lot of dishes with green chili.

We walked in to see a woman making fresh tortillas, served warm with fresh roasted salsa, delicious! Service was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely drive the 40ish miles to come back. Sooo yummy!

My wife and I visit at least once a month. The food is always outstanding with service to match. Great, potent house margaritas. During the evenings you get fresh (made right by hostess stand) corn tortillas with three delicious and different types of salsa...free! Chips and salsa are always included. Portions are huge; we like to split the pork carnitas... More

My family eats here often and we have not once been disappointed. Service is quick and friendly, menu is diverse and fairly piced. If you go on a weekend there are fresh hot tortillas that are AMAZING.

This is our go-to Mexican restaurant in Brighton. Homemade tortillas made while you watch, multi-colored warm chips, spicy salsa, friendly wait staff, delicious platters. The waitresses keep bringing free chips and salsa and free drink refills. Nearly every month, you can find coupons in The Brighton Buzz.

We came here for my birthday in September, it has become a tradition to try a new Mexican restaurant every year on my birthday. In the corner of the restaurant there was a lady making homemade tortillas! They were delicious and our server gave us as many as we wanted! The salsa was spicy, the food was great, the prices...

Mom likes it and the food is okay . We go there once a week and some times met friends there for lunch. The staff is friendly and it don't cost a whole lot for two ,but it does depend on how many are there . They have a very good bean dip.

There are a lot of great reviews for this restaurant. It wasn't bad, but there wasn't anything about it that made me want to return.
