Gorgeous celebratory lunch!

We stayed with friends in St Charles and they look us here for lunch. They made an excellent choice as it was brilliant! We had margaritas and limeade to drink, and chips with guacamole to start. They were refreshing and tasty! We had three different types of tacos; Pastor, pescado and a la diabla... read more

This little place is the best place in town! I would HIGHLY recommend getting reservations (well in advance) or you will have to stand in line to get in. There are two parts to the restaurant...the house is where you get to sit if you have reservations, those just showing up eat in the little place next door. Wonderful, different... More

One of my absolute favorite restaurants in Geneva. You can't go wrong with the food and drinks, I love it all! My husband and I frequently eat here and have also catered food for one of our parties. The one thing I do wish is that they expand to avoid the long lines and crowded dining area, I don't enjoy... More

My family took me here on My birthday. They accommodated our group of 9 in the west house near the window. Staff was friendly. I tried the hibiscus ice tea which was tasty very fruity and sweet. One glass was enough. Our table sampled a variety of tacos. My favorite was the tilapia. Absolutely delicious.

Perhaps smaller portion sizes, but just right, you enjoy your food and don't stuff yourself with sub par food. A total surprise from the facade of the building.

I've read lots of great reviews of this restaurant and know a few people who have dined here abd loved it and it absolutely lives up to the hype. The atmosphere is lively, the decor simple yet unique and the food and drinks are phenomenal. Freshly made margaritas and mojitos, grilled Red Snapper that was served whole with tortillas and...

I read about this restaurant on the drive in to Geneva and thought I have to check this place out and am glad I did . We sat at the bar and the cocktail menu and food menu sounded great and we weren't disappointed. The tuna tacos were to die for and the roasted corn was a great side. I... More

I saw it was ranked best Mexican in the Chicago area. I recently ate at Frontera grill, and this was better. Attentive staff, free chips and salsa, fresh made cocktails, and good, filling food at an affordable price point. Plus outdoor dining available and two bars.

First time visitor to this very small but authentic restaurant. Had heard many great things about the place but I think they under sold it. Had 3 types of tacos...fish...steak and chicken...all served on planks with four tacos per plank...all unique and delicious. Had the guacamole of the day which had watermelon in it with house made chips. Also had... More

The food was VERY good and the environment was modern, but we felt very rushed. I think we were there 20 minutes on a Thursday afternoon. It is small inside and it was raining so they couldn't use their additional outdoor seating. They cleared our plates as soon as we picked up the last bite, sometimes putting food from one... More
