Great Service, Very Good Mexican Food!

Stopped by for lunch - ordered the Mole Poblano, she a chicken enchilada. The enchilada was very good as was the Mole dish, although there could have been more mole sauce. Her wine was served in coffee glasses and was a typical house red wine. My beer was in a 16-20 Oz. glass. The decor and... read more

We eat here several times a week....call in carry out for lunches and stop in on the way home from work. Meals are large enough that we share one together. Its the most authentic mexican I've had in this area and the surrounding states this past year.

Great salsa, great guacamole, great margaritas, great service, great everything. Seriously. Every time we go in I have an internal battle over what to get and try something new because the last 50 (possibly an exaggeration) items I've tried have been fantastic.

Our water tasted very fishy. Service, although not busy, was non existent. Although in the same parking lot as Meijers grocery store and very convenient, it is not worth the non-effort

Great waitress and service but the meal was one of the worse and the price here is expensive. Our experience with the steak Fajita was very unpleasant. Low quality steak (tough); greasy (yuk!), and it lacked any taste that was pleasant. Barely ate any of it.

Visited for a late lunch. Had the Pablano Lunch and SWMBO had a chicken enchilada. The mole sauce with the Pablano was excellent and the enchilada was very good. It's the best Mexican restaurant in the city of Monroe. We stop in every few months and will continue to do so!
