Best Mexican restaurant in region, and beyond.

We've been to every location multiple times and the service, quality of food, and general satisfaction level for us has always been wonderful. We are looking forward to the new location opening in Chisago City so it's ev ed n closer.

We had friends in and tried to find a decent restaurant this far north. This was open until 10, and although the waiter couldn't answer what his favorites were as his first language is Spanish, the things we ordered were all excellent.
