We went here for the first time on 9/13/14. We were able to make a reservation, but when we got there one wasn't needed. We were seated right away and provided chips and salsa - salsa was spicy and very good. The menu has a wide variety but is very pricey ($20 for fajitas vs $15 anywhere else). Food was... More

Third trip here & again good strong margaritas, hot spicy salsa with chips, very well stuffed grilled chicken burrito with fresh ingredients, inc. their awesome chunky homemade guacamole. Husband had chicken mole which he felt was better than a Santa Fe restaurant! For a region with essentially no Mexican food this place is outstanding with a wide variety of seemingly... More

...that you could find very good Mexican food in the middle of NH in a building that is essentially a log cabin. Authentic Mexican dishes taste delicious and there are many options from which to choose. I love their Tacos Al Carbon and their Arrachera. Guacamole de Molcajete (appetizer) is made table-side. If you are looking for HOT, they make... More

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
