I went here with my fiance while we were visiting family in Sarasota. His mother's family is from Mexico, so he gets cranky if he is away from good Mexican food for too long. We liked this place. Portions were generous, the cost was decent, and they gave us a free desert as it was our first visit. Friendly staff,... More

My father got a combo dish with how he describes as "my combination plate with the beef taco and chicken tortillas with the trimmings was exceptional". Even the chips and... More

If you are looking for delicious authentic Mexican food this is the place to go! The portions are large so you get plenty for your money! One of the best things on the menu is the wine margaritas! They are a must have!

I started out looking for a Mexican restaurant in Sarasota by clicking 'Mexican/Southwestern' on the Tripadvisor cuisine filter. This restaurant did not appear; a shame given it's overall high rating in Sarasota. We found it on other search sites and then came back to Tripadvisor to check it out. TA - please fix the filter so this place shows up.... More

My wife and I visited here when we were staying on Siesta Key. It's only a short drive from there and the food is delicious. I had the Relleno Plate and definitely recommend it. I had never had anything like it. Check it out!

This is a small and tasty restaurant. I loved the food and the price. I disliked that in season here in Sarasota you can't get a parking spot

This was a great find. Family run restaurant. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Food was also excellent. They gave us a welcome tree of life dessert which was a nice touch. If you are wanting Mexican you must go hear!

Ruben treated us like royalty and the food was absolutely the best. You have to order the 5 cheese dip for appetizer and the fajita burrito was the best I have ever eaten. The staff was top notch, the owner is very friendly and the food is wonderful. Thank you very much Ruben for a wonderful dining experience and the... More
