By far the best Mexican inspired food I have ever had. There was a wait when we showed up but they took our phone number, we walked around Geneva in the mean time, and they called when our table was ready. The place was crowded and energetic. When trying to decide we asked the waiter what he would order and... More

This place is the real deal. The two times I've been lucky enough to get in, I would rank this place as the best Mexican Food I've ever had. We enjoyed the guacamole of the day (with Pineapple), Bien Trucha tacos, and Swordfish tacos. Each was just as delicous as the last - and even though I don't like fish... More

Tried their guacamole of the day- which was pineapple flavored and it was delicious. A friend on a visit had watermelon guac on a previous visit and reported it as the best he... More

The food here is excellent. That being said, we rarely went here when we lived in Geneva because it was always way too crowded. The wait time can be long and the tables seem unusually close.

The food was decent, we arrived at 8:30 on and we're promptly seated after having trouble finding the restaurant as we are from out of town. We ordered water to start which was room temperature and served from a green bottle with no label. We ordered a bacon shrimp appetizer and continued to look for entrees. We ordered entrees of...

The burst of flavors dancing on my palate, WOW'd me! Love this place! Great service, amazing atmosphere, and yummy Mexican cuisine! If you are ever... More

The tacos here are great, as well as the drinks. The cheese and shrimp dish is to die for. Very well done. Will be back.

The food here is fantastic. They make most of the drinks in house with fresh ingredients. No reservations so you have to wait a bit. They now have an outside so the wait is shorter in the warm weather. Pricey but worth it. The best, most authentic Mexican around.
