Nice Place

The waiter was very friendly & pleasant. He suggested a grilled chicken dish that was excellent. The frozen margarita I ordered wasn't very good being extremely sweet & frothy. Next time I would skip the margarita. The refried beans were very good & a bit different than many Mexican restaurant... read more

This was the best Mexican food I have had in a long time! The food was high quality and you could taste the authentic, home-made flavors. Victor was simply amazing! He was friendly, helpful, energetic, and passionate about his craft. The combination of atmosphere, cuisine, and value make this place a must visit. I will definitely return!

This is real Mexican, not TexMex. The owner, Victor was also our server. He treated us like a member of the family. He asked us what we wanted and we weren't sure. He then asked if we wanted beef, chicken, or pork. We said we liked any of those. He then asked if we liked spicy or mild. We said... More

My family and family friend went to establishment, for our son's birthday. When ordering our food the waitress went from waiter to sales person, advising us that what we were ordering and she would give us a better dish. Our friend wanted fajitas but they gave him the chicken ixtapa which was no where close to fajitas. I wanted chicken... More

The food at this place is prepared with amazing care. They prepare a dish that makes an impression and represents a qualitative difference. This is not your ordinary Mexican Food place, but is one you remember when thinking of really good Mexican food. We entered the restaurant, were immediately recognized and seated, and provided with tortillas and salsa. The wait... More

If you want to eat what residents of Guadalajara, Mexico eat, this is the place for you. No salt on the table. Nothing with yellow cheese. Fabulous salsa. If you are lucky enough to be there when the owner, Victor, is in the house, you are in for a treat. Especially if he knows it's your first time there. He... More

BLUF- Excellent, fresh, well prepared Mexican food. In my experience, the quality of the food is a direct reflection of the time and effort spent on preparing the meals. The presentation of the food is also better than any restaurant I have found in the Kansas City area. A great find for me and my family. Found this small place... More

We found this smaller place in a strip mall just West of I-29 on Barry Rd. a Groupon deal led us there and it was a pleasant surprise. We had the tacos as pictured on their Groupon offer and it was a tasty surprise. They are not folded but lay flat and open on the plate. They were pleasantly spicey,... More

Thank you for giving us a try!

In my opinion, the menu was filled with unusual Mexican recipe interpretations, the service was uninspired, but the food we were served did appear to be fairly high quality. The higher pricing was not justified by the presentation. Entrée presentations don't impress me and it seemed an attempt was made in this direction. The room was typical for a strip... More
