We frequent this restaurant and the food is very good. I have my favorites, but if you can luck out with Ribs night, you will not be disappointed. They have a great Chicken Dish with Corn that is out of this world. Service can be slow, but it is a small place so reservations during summer months a must.

Last weekend we had a great Mexican dinner at El Centenario. We were a family of three and we each had an appetizer , an entree and deset and all of it was delicious. Definetely a hidden gem on a side street. It is a small restaurant, so make sure you have a reservation.

I really enjoyed the food but thought the margarita was poorly done. Knowing that I make really good margaritas my wife encouraged me to mention how to make a great margarita to the bartender. I guess being a pretty girl working a summer job while in college makes one too cool to take advice. Bottom line. A crabby bartender and... More

Just returned home from a memorable meal. Best Mexican we've had in a while. What a surprise to have this in our backyard! Raspberry margaritas were excellent, as was the service. Enchilada w/mole pablano, delish and shrimp w/riceand salad. Call for reservations, a must, it's small but cozy. Don't forget to order the guacamole made at your table. Yum!!!!

The last place you would look for great Mexican food is a small town in New Hampshire, but here it is. Everything is great. I always get the Tacos and my sister always gets the Enchilada with green sauce. The guacamole is made fresh at your table with ingredients you choose. Only negative is that it is very small and...

The Sole with butter and white wine sauce was spectacular. The tacos carbonara were average as the tortillas were hard. The queso was fantastic.

As a Texan, I'm very particular about Mexican food, and I did not expect to find authentic delicious Mexican cuisine in New Hampshire. I was pleasantly surprised. The enchiladas were perfect, with homemade tomatillo sauce. Wonderful! The owner is from Mexico and is very warm and friendly. Hope I have a chance to go back.

Kind of a little hole in the wall, just off Main in Wolfeboro. Stopped in for my birthday lunch, actually, based on a tip from my old friend Yelp. Ordered the chicken mole enchiladas and spent the rest of lunch swooning, then licked my place. The service was great, attentive, fast. Was a bit warm in there but I'd sweat... More

The server was a friendly, cute young man who took time to talk to us, answer our questions about the area. The chips and salsa were good, and we both ordered enchiladas that were awesome. There was a different, more upscale decor than most Mexican restaurants, and it was a pleasant change. Good experience in every way.

Many choices for $10, very large portions and excellent service. Small seating area but is good enough for our party
