If your looking for good Mexican food at reasonable prices, this is your place! The food is good, and the service is great! Be sure to ask them how they get all of those dollar bills up on the ceiling (though it will cost you a dollar to find out!)

The first sign of a good Mexican restaurant is the chips & salsa. Good flavor and sufficient heat. Fair warning is not to fill up here, My wife & I split the shrimp fajitas and they were very good with ample portion for two. Downside was my son had a cheeseburger that was cooked inconsistently and the fries were flavorless.... More

Our very large group (broken into 2 tables as we arrived) I'm sure tested the patience of the waitstaff, but they were friendly, attentive, and warm. The food was perfect (I got the soft tacos this time). Last year I had the fried ice cream and this year wished I'd remembered to save room! It was one of the top... More

We decided to go and grab some appetizers because we weren't too hungry but love trying new places. The quesadillas were great and so were the taquitos. We asked about the dollar bills on the ceiling and they let us add two to the lot.

Food is fresh, unique & delicious. Great atmosphere nestled in a beautiful setting surrounded by towering alpine mountains. A favorite stop for many years.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and have enjoyed every visit here. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great (and family friendly), and the staff is usually pretty good. I would very strongly recommend the steak fajitas for dinner. The are amazing! The sopapillas are top notch for dessert. Enjoy this place but come early. There... More

I cannot possibly recommend this place. We rang up and booked a table for 2. When we arrived, we were told they made a mistake and they didn't take reservations for small groups of 2 people but there was plenty of room so it was no problem. The waitress then proceeded to seat larger groups than ours, even groups who... More
