Unique dining experience

This is by far my favorite local restaurant. They have delicious daily specials as well as the everyday favorites. Don't let the name full you, it is definitely more than a "mexican" restaurant. The crab imperial topped dishes are my family's favorite. Salsa is fresh. Wine margaritas are... read more

Good food. The owner, Ahmad, is always there and walks around greeting the customers, which is nice. The only problem is that there is usually someone playing guitar who is never very good.

First time at this place and my wife and I loved it. You cannot beat the service, our drinks we're never empty and all the chips and salsa you wanna eat, salsa must be house made it was the best I have ever had. I had the surf and turf, 12 Oz sirloin with bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp, excellent.... More

I can't overstate how impressed we were with the experience here. The food was excellent, the drinks were scrumptious (red wine sangria was A+), but the service was truly outstanding. The staff was incredibly accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. The owner & chef visited our table to ensure our satisfaction - and our expectations were exceeded. I will admit, the outside...

This is not your typical Mexican restaurant, this is more of a Spanish/Mediterranean dining experience! You can get an amazing burrito, to be sure....or... you can have a fresh seafood paella, or savory lamb, or tapas, or prime rib with bacon wrapped scallops..... you get the idea. This is our favorite place to go when we have a night away... More

From the atmosphere, the servers, the owners and the whole dinner experience it's so unique! It's very eclectic and all of the flavors of the Mediterranean are meshed into the specials and even the regular menu. Whether we go as a couple, with the kids and bringing guests we always order the Appetizers. I love the mezza with goat cheese,... More

First, do not be confused, this is not a mediterranean restaurant, it's more of a greek owned, mexican cook place. The fusion is actually interesting and so are some of the plates. Service was great, prices a little steep but food taste was delicious.

This our favorite local place to dine out, especially when out-of-town friends come to visit. For over 20 years, this has been a consistently great restaurant. The owner greets customers warmly and makes everyone feel welcome. The regular menu items are always good and fairly priced. The nightly specials are truly special. It's a favorite place for family celebrations because... More
