Don't stray from the typical tex-mex or you'll be disappointed. Table side guacamole was excellent. Chicken quesadilla was very good as well. Alitas de pollo was disappointing. Chicken was cooked well, but sauce was a sweet tomatoe sauce with no spice nothing like a buffalo sauce, as claimed on the menu. My wife had the chicken with white sauce with... More

I have been here 4 solid times for food. Each time I have been underwhelmed with the quality of the food. I find that it is overpriced for what it is. The food isn't bad, but I do find it to be bland. Their guacamole is made table-side which is very cool. But it's just avocado, line and salt. There's... More

We went on a wet july night. Busy but we had a table straight away. Water arrived and nachos with a thin but tasty salsa. We all had fajitas. Large portion. Good taste and tender steak. The margaritas were disappointing. Far far too sweet. Possibly a bottle mix not fresh....suggest asking before ordering as we did not. Overall we would... More

Overall the restaurant was good. There were chips and salsa served on the table. The salsa was spicy, which I like, but was more like a pasta sauce consistency. The meals we ordered were average but not bad for the price. If you're in the mood for a Margarita--this must be the place to be! The selection was huge. The... More

Decided to go try a new Mexican Restaurant for Cinco de Mayo, since it was a holiday there were no Luncheon Specials. My husband ordered the Rib Eye Steak (Bistec A La Mexicana) He said it was Very Good, would order it again.. I ordered the Special Combo Plate of Tostada, Taco and Chimichangas and would order it again. We... More

The food was decent (salsa is a joke, tastes like Ragu pasta sauce) but the big problem was the surprise bill. 76$ for two pitchers of bottom shelf margaritas. Unreal. We felt bad about the tip amount we left, but refused to tip on the pitchers. We'll never go back.

Ate dinner here this week .... I thought the complimentary chips and salsa were rather lame, and the prices high, but overall the food was okay and portions huge. Service was good. Their kitchen was full of smoke when I arrived (you could see it when they opened the door) .... they said they are having issues with the fan,... More

The food is terrific. Family owned and owner often does the cooking. Same owners as El Centenario in Wolfeboro.

The food here was really good. The portions are huge. The staff was helpful. The decor was sort of kitschy Mexican. The view from the enormous front window - New Hampshire mountains - was beautiful. A winner of a restaurant.
