Wow, we didn't expect the food and drinks to be so wonderful, what a nice surprise! The food was fabulous with generous portions, the service was outstanding, the atmosphere was cozy, and the dining area and restroom were very clean. We ordered anything that included "to die for" or "very popular" in the description....and SO GLAD we did! We plan... More

Had dinner recently on a brief layover at the airport. The family who runs this fine place knows good Mexican food. Each bite had that definite touch of good, down-home Mexican cooking. Even though their are choices nearby, none come close to the service and quality.

What a delightful and unusual lunch! This little place was on our way doing errands, and will now be a destination in itself. No wonder we loved it, with all the awards and honors framed on the wall! Homemade corn tortillas filled with gourmet delights, such as squash blossoms cooked with onions in white wine -- and whatever else, were... More

The food is fantastic!!!! The owners makes special dishes. If you want typical tacos and burritos, go elsewhere. The food is fresh and made to order. You need to outside of your "Mexican" cuisine box and you WILL not be sorry. The owners often wait on the tables and are excited to talk you into eating certain dishes. I have... More

In response to this review I am going to say that this is an un-true statement. This customer came in with his family and ordered a lot of food. They ate almost all of it and then announced to the entire restaurant that there was a roach in their food. Luis, my manager and server, came over to the table... More

We've been here multiple times, and we never fail to receive great service and great food. I especially appreciate that this is one place I can get a flavorful, baked, vegetarian Mexican dish (the Chile Rellenos - the cactus in it MAKES the dish!) that won't make me sick with grease or blow my nutrition. Rather than the greasy, smelly... More

Clean. Courteous wait staff. I had a steak burrito meal. Quite tasty. The rice was a bit bland and dry for my taste but I like sticky Japanese rice. Less than $20 with tip.

There menu reflects authentic Mexican without Americanizing the choices. They will make any adjustments and often we say "surprise us" with a new idea.
