Ive eaten here numerous times and found it to be a good Americanized Mexican restaurant. Lots of seating so waits are short. Portions are plentiful and comparable to most other restaurants of this nature. Restaurant was clean and staff was friendly. Bar selection was also typical. Never left hungry.

Good food, a little on the spicy side which is good for my husband, not for me. Not authentic tho. Great portions. Friendly staff!

I don't think I have ever written a 1 star review, but this restaurant earned it tonight. We have a cabin in the area and have tried many of the restaurants in the area. We remembered Poncho & Leftys being 'good enough' from a previous visit, but we will never return. The food was tasteless - even the salsa (which... More

Good southwestern Mexican food, not traditional Mexican though. But is good none the less, Fajitas are very good, and steamy hot. Exceptional margaritas including the monster mango that we had. Waitresses could do better, if they would stop walking as they buzzed past your table asking how things are. Gone on by before you can even reply or ask for... More

13 of our family grabbed a quick lunch while visitiing from out of town. We have eaten there a couple of times before. Food was very good, although a couple orders got mixed up but were quickly remedied. Food was hot. Lot of chips to start as any typical Mexican restaurant has. I would return.

Wonderful decor, amazing service and prices are spot on. Food was excellent.I loved their salsa and chips. My boyfriend and I both ordered the enchilada plate with rice and beans and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this hidden jewel in Baxter, MN.

We frequent here often. The chips are salsa are good, not great. Service is typically very good and the time to get your food is very quick. Average food but good and filling.

My husband & I were traveling thru to go fishing at Cass Lake and wanted good Mexican food. The atmosphere was very welcoming and appropriate. Our waitress was very nice and considerate and did her best. I first ordered a peach margarita that came out with lots of ice and a foam on top? I assumed the foam was the... More

This place was awesome! We were offered both mild and hot salsa for the chips and it was really good! The burrito I ordered was huge and very tasty. I would definitely order it again. My husband had a combination meal and really enjoyed that also. The waitress was great-super attentive. This is one place we will be going back... More
