Great family restaurant with outstanding food. Even my daughter, fussy eating daughter enjoyed the food. We go quite often to the restaurant. The owner may even sing to you if your special.

This restaurant is rather small. The staff and owner are very helpful and friendly. The food is excellent and the owner also entertains was some Mexican music with guitar. The food is very fresh and good tasting.

My family have eaten here twice now while traveling from NC to FL or further for vacation. We visited March 6, 2015 and the owner serenaded us again with his guitar. When we visited in December of 2011 we were the only patrons and he was so nice to sing and play the guitar that day as well. Even with... More

I had the house specialty, the Shrimp Chac-Mool and it was outstanding. The menu features most... More

If you like Mexican, you can't go wrong here. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Like many Mexican restaurants, though, they served plenty of margaritas and beer, but no hard liquor.

I'm not the biggest fan of Mexican food probably because the offerings in Canada are not very good or interesting. But I really liked the food here. It was very tasty. Everyone at out table was pleased with their dish and we agreed that we'd be back. I chose the Pollo Chac-Mool, which is one of their specialties. The dish... More
