Absolutely the best Mexican food weI have had in years. So glad to hear about this brightly decorated little restaurant in Brooksville/Spring Hill, area. We both enjoyed everything and shared our food to savor all the flavors. Guacamole was so fresh, as was the salsa bursting with taste. Chips were warm and served immediately after we sat down. Our server... More

My husband and I are so happy to see this place is open again. We have tried many others while this place was closed and some of them were not bad but this place is by far our favorite. I usually get the #39 ( I think ) it's a chicken burrito DELISH. My husband has tried lots of different... More

We have been waiting for them to re-open after their move (same Plaza just different building). We went in for lunch recently and the food was wonderful as usual. This was our first time for lunch and thought the portions would be less but it didn't seem like they were smaller. Excellent food and great service and all of the... More

The last two times we have gone they have been closed. We just tried last night and there was a padlock on the door?!?! This is actually getting ridiculous. They had just closed for moving and now again? We have no clue if they will reopen, which sucks because this place has great food!

We've eaten here several times and each time the service and food is great. Never had a complaint and the prices are very reasonable. Fresh ingredients and potent drinks. Try the bubbling hot Mocajete bowl. It's a volcanic rock mortar and pestle bowl heated to a high temp with your choice of chicken seafood or beef along with cheese, peppers,... More

Best green chili enchiladas I've had since I left Tucson in 1969. My companion's taco salad was great also. Crisp shell, not at all greasy like some we've had. Not much atmosphere but that's better than annoying Mexican music that some restaurants have. Enthusiastic server who checked on us fairly often but wasn't annoying.

Three of us went to this restaurant 2 months ago hoping that we could find some decent Mexican food within 30 minutes of our home....NOPE!!! Its just not good...not the salsa...not the fajita's....not the burritos...not even the margaritas...Not sure how you take flavor out of re-fried beans but somehow they cracked the code!!!

Ever since leaving El Paso, TX, my wife (a native El Pasoan) and I continue to search for the flavors we both love from northern Mexico and the area around El Paso. Pueblo Viejo comes pretty close and for now is the best we've found in this part of Florida. Plus, while speaking with the manager, they are willing to... More
