The food overall was fantastic! It is such a family friendly place for all ages. However, the waiter did make some minor delays in our order. When my brother asked for a refill of his soda, he did not seem to take his order the first time we gave it to him. Back to the cuisine, unlike most Mexican restaurants,... More

Have been here a few times and always have a delicious meal. All meats are organic and local. This is truly great fresh Mexican done right. All of the flavors and sauces are authentic! My favorite Mexican around. Also the freshest! Great south of the border style and feel to boxcar! Muchas Gracias!!

This place touts local sourcing...but with mediocre cooking you simply get lame food. If you add to that service that ranges from slow to incompetent/disrespectful, this restaurant is not worth spending your time/money. I had been there a few times before to meet friends. Food was never great but at least it was a convenient site to gather. Waiter Dane... More

Authentic Mexican made with fresh ingredients. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good prices. In froo froo Greenwich, you really can't find anything like this without going into Port Chester and fighting for parking and a table ... well worth it.

I have been going to this restaurant for 17 years, and used to think there was no good reason to go to another Mexican restaurant. Now I can give you plenty of reasons. This is our second bummer experience in a row at this restaurant, so it's not just a bad night. Last night, just as our drinks and chips/salsa... More

First, to the other reviewers: stop your whining! Families with small kids have been coming here for years. They keep the kids in one section away from everyone else. We just finished a wonderful meal and see all kinds of groups seated around us. We started with the chorizo con queso and tortilla soup. Both deserve five stars! We then... More

1. Charging customers who pay such high price for food and drink for your chips and salsa is offensive. When I go with my children, there are five of us and we would like two chips and salsa and that now adds $8 onto my bill. I could stop the review right here because I consider this ill business decision... More
