This is a very small restaurant; make a reservation! Our first time they here they told us they "have real Mexicans working in the kitchen"! That being said, the servers are very nice and work very, very hard. The food is excellent. Order the made-at-your-table guacamole--delicious.

I wanted to like this place..and in all fairness it was okay when I went a couple years ago. I'm picky..so maybe this place might be okay if you aren't..as there seemed to be people there who were enjoying the food. Our meals were bad. We should have listened when the lovely waitress tried to steer my husband to a... More

What a delicious restaurant. The drinks were delish, we had red sangria and I ordered the Flautas...melted in my mouth. I long to find Mexican cuisine that is this good, closer to home and have not been able to. The space is tight, but it works. Someday I will be back!

Love the food here but have had service experiences ranging from average to none. Our food was delivered and we never saw the server again. It is a small place, she was not on break but never once filled empty water glasses, asked about empty margarita glasses (would have ordered a second round), or about coffee or dessert (and the...

Table side guacamole! Excellent margaritas! Nice wait staff and good Mexican food. WIsh it was better ventilated (cold in winter, warm in summer) but it's nice to have a Mexican place in NH so we will endure!

This is awesome Mexican food with friendly servers. The menu has many choices. The table side guacamole is incredible. Huge portions on the burritos and other entrées. The sangria is great, white or red. If you like Mexican, this is the best in NH and maybe New England.

Pretty good for Wolfeboro. Not as fresh as they think they are, rice and beans crowd every dish, Large menu, way overpriced.

Margaritas were delicious and exactly what we wanted! Guacamole was made right at the table and tasted very good. We shared the enchilada triple dish, it was very good and spicy. Food and service was prompt with our 2 year old. We will return again!

This tiny authentic Mexican restaurant, is everything you would want in Mexican cuisine! Their margaritas are deliciously mind numbing, (be sure to have a designated driver!) I can't rave enough about their tortilla soup, I could literally eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I love the sweet and savory taste in their chili relleno, also the fried ice cream... More
