Best Mexican in town

Nice little place, and I mean little! They do have some outdoor seating which helps, but make reservations if you can as they fill up fast! Their food is fresh, not the usual "freezer to microwave" mexican, and drinks are good too!

Margaritas so good you hardly feel them go down. We had the cochinita pibil it was tender and the sauce just perfect. Dessert I tried the flan and was in heaven. My husband had fried ice cream and lived it. It will be our first stop on every chance we get to go to Galena. Can't wait :-)

The menu offers authentic choices, no taco plates here. The food is very good, and you get a lot. The inside serving area is a bit cramped, but that adds to the overall experience. I would say stop by if you are in Galena and want Mexican food.

The food was good here. The chimichanga was really good and so were the quesadillas. The beef nachos were also very good.

We stopped for lunch while in town for the weekend. The prices appear high but there is a lot of food that comes with their main dishes. The server was helpful in steering us towards the a la carte menu and creating a smaller meal for less money. I enjoyed my fajitas but felt they were cooked in more oil... More

(Girls weekend) we ate here for lunch...my friends had eaten here before and were craving the chunky guacamole. They said it was as good as they remembered! The margaritas were great (and strong)! The service was a little slow, especially considering there was only one other table seated but overall the food was tasty ad we would return.

My husband and I stopped for lunch and shared the chicken loaded nachos and quesadilla. Both were delicious!!! Service was wonderful. As it was a nice day, we ate out on the patio which was beautiful. Great place!

Had the steak chilaquiles and man was it good! Scrambled eggs & tortilla pieces with some mexican tomato sauce (not spicy) topped with dollop of sour cream and thin steak on the side. WOW! So very good.

The food was waaaaaaay too expensive. It was alright, not bad, but not the best Mexican food I've had, and not anything better than I could make at home (and that's part of the point of going to a restaurant... it should be better than what I can make in my own kitchen). The patio was big and very nice,... More

Terrible service, terrible food, HORRIBLE margaritas, and costly!! The food was greasy, tasteless, and over priced. The margaritas were bright yellow from the amount of bottled mix that was used -- AND $9. We were shoved into a corner on the (very open) patio and completely ignored. I would not recommend this place to anyone!!!
