Good service, good food, good prices, good ambiance, ... what's not to like. They are popular for a reason. I had the cheese and onion enchiladas and they were great. Not a super fancy place... just a comfortable homey kind of establishment.

We have returned here each time we visit St. Augustine. It never disappoints. They don't have a liquor license, but their wine margarita is just as good! Anything with pork in it is so tender and flavorful. I highly recommend. I had the Carnitas(Fried Pork Meat) Fried chunks of pork meat served with pico de gallo, rice, Refried beans, and... More

This is a place that the locals frequent. Ambiance is good and menu is vast. We can take the kids, and also go there for date night. Casual and friendly.

If you like Taco Bell and think that is Mexican food Do Not Stop Here. The food was AWESOME. And the staff (aka "the boys) were friendly and funny. Got to love any place that has a water pitcher the size of you head ( we are both water drinkers) "The wife" had the 3 steak taco dinner she was... More

To be fair to the restaurant, we went in about 8:30, a party of 4. I ordered a chicken Quesadilla, The food took about 25 minutes to come, had to ask for more salsa and chips. Waiter did not come back to check on us as he was clearing other tables, filling salt and pepper shakers etc. Would like to... More

Let me just start by saying I've had Mexican/Tex-Mex in a lot of places, from Chicago to Laredo to Cozumel and many points in between. The salsa at this little spot is the best tomato salsa I've ever eaten. It had just the right touch of sugar with the perfect blend of spices, not too heavy on the cilantro. I... More

We were a bit concerned when we pulled up since it was a little early and not too crowded but we were very happy with our choice of restaurants. All of the main courses were wonderful and the margaritas were great too. If I didn't need to drive back to the hotel I would have drank several more. The only... More

Stopped in for dinner. Nicely decorated small restaurant, not too busy on a Friday night. Nachos were average, salsa was a little bland but a hot salsa was brought out when requested which added a little more zip. Entrees we're good, but very much like any other Mexican diner. We were going to try the ceviche but as it was... More
