Probably the best service I have ever experienced at a Mexican food restaurant. Has a Vallarta southern pacific look and the food has the taste from this region of Mexico. The cost was also very reasonable. Well done!

They try too hard to be cool. Pasty artwork and décor, and the food was just boring. Service was fast, place is clean.

We started with the guacamole and it seemed to have mostly all avacado and a minimal amount if any fillers. We had the Fabians special and a tamale, taco and stuffed pablano chili. All were well cooked. They were flavorful but not spicy. You can add salsa or hot sauce if you like it spicier. Service was very efficient and... More

The service was excellent. Our drinks were always full. Food was really good. Guacamole needs a little lime juice bit was still good. Salsa and chips good. 11 in our party and everyone cleared their plates. Atmosphere is wonderful too. Recommend it.

Great selection and flavor. We had 11 people for lunch and they were very efficient. They even gave my daughter a birthday dessert with sombrero and a birthday song.
