At La Covina turned into a good thing. Drinks were brought quickly, salsa and chips came next, nice cloth napkins, and interesting decor. I ordered Black Bean soup and I was surprised by the broth, but it turned out the soup was super. Our dinners were well presented and proved to be very tasty and filling. We will be back.

Stopped by to have a drink and cool off. Great View of the bay from the upstairs windows. The Drinks were very good, and the guacamole was fabulous and plentiful. Their Salsa has way too much fire for me, but my table mates liked it. You do have to walk up stairs which was difficult for me. But I would... More

Cute little place with great food and fantastic prices. The services here is always great and they give you plenty of food to eat. Love the nachos here we always get the combo ones with the beef and chicken, they are supposed to be an app but they are big enough to have as a meal with leftovers. The fried... More

To be honest, we're Mexican food snobs as my wife comes from a Mexican heritage, is from New Mexico and makes REAL Mexican food at home. That said, this food was okay but not great. My 15 y/o daughter ordered a chicken quessadilla and it was delivered soggy. It was actually rather nasty. I ordered a burrito which was tiny... More

Hands down the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. Every dish has a surprisingly unique taste and the preperation is quite impressive. I've been here a few dozen times over the years and I've never had a bad experience.

By far the best experience in Mexican cuisine. Everything was terrific, from the workers to the freshly prepared meals. My picky family all found something to eat and enjoyed it. Will most definitely be back next time we are in town. Thanks for the special attention they gave my finicky son.

We eat there often...or we did. Last trip in and the service was awful, the food bland and portions have been reduced. The fajitas portions have been almost cut in half??? We had the family there and they tacked on 18% gratuity to the total bill after they added in the tax. The service wasn't worth 1.8 percent much less... More

Driving down US-1 and pulling into the first restaurant you see can be risky sometimes, but we were pleased that the local, hole-in-the-wall provided excellent service and yummy food. Would return; would recommend
