So lots of friends and family raved about this place and told me I had to go. I took my parents and fiancee' and off we went. The service, food, and atmosphere are outstanding. The reason I gave this 4 stars was simply the fact that a great Mexican restaurant has to have a great Margarita to have 5 stars... More

What a great experience! Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with super service, and the food is terrific. The menu has all types of Mexican food, with a variety of tastes. Portions are ample for two people to share. The bar does not make frozen margaritas, but the other drinks and beers are more than enough. The key lime ice cream was a... More

A fantastic little restaurant with a loyal following. When I asked around Geneva for a good Mexican restaurant Bein Trucha came up more than any other, and for good reason, this place offers many authentic Mexican dishes in a "share-able" size. Expect a wait, and there isn't a waiting area in the restaurant. As other reviewers have noted, they will... More

We had an excellent experience here. We were able to make a reservation on line, which they do not take many reservations in this manner. The service was wonderful and the food was fantastic. It's a very small restaurant but the atmosphere is a lot of fun. We had an appetizer of the salsa sampler. . . so delicious and... More

When we moved here everyone told us this was a "must visit". Since I wasn't about to line up on the sidewalk at 5PM to get in anywhere, it was a while before we got in. We ended up sitting outside on a nice night, which was fortunate since it's really claustrophobic inside. We ordered a number of items to... More

Took my husband here on a weekend date and our taste buds were overwhelmed with enjoyment. I had a signature margarita which packed a punch and didn't disappoint in any way. Their traditional guacamole was so amazing i could've made an entire meal just of that. My husband ordered the Fish Tacos and I ordered a sandwich. We loved the... More
