First impression was dirty bathrooms which sort of set the tone for the atmosphere. No music, no sound on the TV's. Our waiter was very attentive but difficult to understand. The chips and salsa were fabulous. Our food was served quickly and was fantastic. We would eat here again if we wanted Mexican while in Grand Rapids.

We went here for a friends birthday dinner. They were very accommodating to special dietary needs - vegan. The food is always good and the service too!

We eat here a few times every summer and really enjoy our time. The food is equal to many mexican restaurants in the Twin Cities. The ambiance is average the service is good and the food good, fast and filling--all the chips and salsa you want too. Give it a try..

The reviews from trip advisor brought me to this restaurant and didn't let me down. The steak burrito was seasoned well and came with fried onions topped with cheese and served with rice and beans. The taste was really good. chips and salsa before the meal great service and priced at 9.99. Will be back!

Who would've thought on a below zero day in February in the middle of Minnesota, we could....if only for a few hours....feel like we were in some little sea-side cantina (minus only the seaside part)! Catarino's molcajete was very good and large enough for 4 people. The blended mango and classic on the rocks margaritas were top shelf quality at... More

I got a great deal from this restaurant by showing them the key of the motel I was staying at next door which really made my day. I also really enjoyed the food. It tasted authentic and I had never tasted good food such as this. I will definitely be coming here again!

I was in town for business and stopped in on a whim. I orderd the steak burrito. The picture in the menu did not do it justice. It was awesome. I asked about the the excellent guacamole.

Chile Renellos are fantastic and a little spicy (just the way I like them). The mole chicken was rather bland though. The chips and salsa that came with were very good as were the beans and rice.

Delicious fajitas for two. Portion large enough to feed 4 @ $20. Combination of pork, beef, chicken and shrimp in a very tasty sauce (not spicey). Service friendly and efficient. Decor a little funky, but you can't eat decor. Great value!!!
