The atmosphere is a bit expected for a Mexican restaurant and the food is pretty standard BUT we love the people who work here. They are very friendly and we feel like we are at a neighborhood spot. We love the chips, salsa and margaritas...and the guacamole is great!!

Visited this "restaurant?" yesterday. Big mistake! Should have driven away when I noticed the front was in disrepair. Entered to find a waiter sitting at the bar talking loudly with the bartender (another red flag). When he noticed us, he got up and led us into the "empty" (red flag) dining room, and told us he would be right back.... More

I too love supporting local business, but I have been here twice and will never return again. Like another reviewer here, I found the place to be dingy, fly ridden and as of this writing the front of the place has a huge blue tarp over the roof and looks like its falling apart and closed, but it's not. We... More

John and his entire staff are amazing hosts for the best Mexican food and drinks in the greater Danbury era. We had a great meal of beef and chicken nachos, salsa, and then margarita's. It was a very nice time! Fernando was gracious and attentive the entire visit offering refills and more! Authentic, warm, and friendly!

As we sat waiting for our order the manager swatted away with a menu trying to kill the flies on the window near the table next to ours. The food was terrible. The service the same. Never again!

Always loved the salsa but recently it is more tomato than anything else. The food is OK, nothing really special. I used to go there more frequently but the quality is not what it used to be.

with a work colleague. We were surprised to find the place empty. There was a good reason for that. The food is not very good at all. I lived in the Southwest for a while and this place would be closed in 30 seconds or less. The owner greeted us at the door and was very nice and solicitous. Sadly... More
