Great food selection; reasonable prices

We were here for dinner. The place has a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. They have a nice beer selection. Many vegetarian choices.

Disappointed with the experience. Slow service, crowded, too many glasses spilled. Wait staff would bring out one or two of dishes and then take several minutes to bring the rest of our parties food. Overpriced.

We stop here every time we are in Great Barrington. Sometimes we take a day trip and stop in for lunch. It is especially nice in the summer to have lunch on the deck. The staff has always been very nice and attentive. The food is always a treat. I especially like the veggie fajitas and the agua fresca. The... More

This was my first meal when I arrived for my holidays in the US...and it was great! Very professional staff, great food and even better Margaritas! Just be careful with the chili...it's really hot! :D

We have had dinner here each of the last four years when we visit the Berkshires for visiting day at camp. High marks for the margaritas, freshly made guacamole (a must order), grilled corn and fish tacos. Low marks for ambiance - too tight inside and too buggy outside. Low marks for their famous as seen live on Emmerill chicken... More

The restaurant looks attractive and quaint from the road, but I think it's best to pass by. The staff is very accommodating and the room is cozy, but no air conditioning on a 90 degree day. We sat outside which was cooler. The portions are very large but not very tasty. Perhaps we ordered the wrong meals; but I don't... More

We came here following a rave review, and so couldn't help but be a little disappointed. The fresh salsa had no heat and was gone after 3 chips. We asked for a refill and were given an equally tiny dish of it. The "grilled corn" appetizer was in no way grilled. No brown marks or smoky flavor. It seemed microwaved... More

You know, it's not bad. The guacamole in particular is freshly made and v. good. The mole sauce doesn't strike me as vibrant as perhaps it ought to be, given the menu's write up. The service is good, but nothing special. They do seem to try hard. And there's not a lot of competition.

Real, Mexican food is hard to come by these days. This place is the real deal! My husband and I love to take a trip just for the jalepeno margaritas and steak burritos. Bar service is excellent, freshly squeezed lime juice, Milagro, and salted rims. What more could you ask for?

We stopped here for lunch on Memorial Day 2015. The food was fresh and tasty. The nachos we had for an appetizer were $8. The had refried beans, fresh tomatos, onions, guacamole, sour cream and nice pieces of cubed steak. The Chili Reliano my wife got was very good. The Enchilada Mexico I got was large stuffed with vegetables, beef... More
