A Little Bit of real Mexico

Saw the small orangish restaurant from the road and it was isolated from town and I was worried. No cars there and it opened in 15 minutes. But, by noon it was packed and we jsut finished a great Mexican lunch. Great decor, great waiter, very good food. We had a party of 10 and all really liked... read more

We had all kinds of dishes and everyone was pleased. I had huevos rancheros and it was terrific, Faribault is lucky to have such a fine restaurant for Mexican food.

Great Mexican food, excellent service and friendly people. The restaurant is a little out of the way but worth the time looking for it.

Small restaurant with nice décor, excellent service and fast hot fresh food. Our margaritas were a bit weaker than usual last night but tried the Fajitas Vallarta for the first time for something different and was happy with the meal. This has fish, shrimp,mussels and fajita fixings. Only complaint I would have is it would be nice if they removed... More

Really cute place, with nice service for sure. The food is pretty good too, especially for a chain type restaurant, and at reasonable prices. I was in during the day, but I can imagine since there aren't too many choices around, it could be pretty busy at night, so maybe come early!

Every week I would come here for the 3 enhiladas w/ different sauces. Excellent, humble family-owned restaurant with good service and ample portions. If you like Mexican food, this is the real deal. We're moving back to Arizona now and I almost want to ask for the recipe. They also have a restaurant in Northfield in a strip mall. The... More

Love this place. It's my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. Reminds me so much of puerto Vallarta. Authentic looking, decorations and food is awesome. Best margaritas hands down besides the ones I get when I'm vacationing in Mexico. The owner rocks and is always so sweet to us! Best part close to home!!

What a great place, it's small but that gives it more of the family style. Everyone there is wonderfully pleasant and the food was great. And for what they charge for the food, you'll be hard pressed to find abetter Mexican Restaurant.
