Excelente!

Great authentic mexican restaurant near the hotel. Prices were right and the portions were huge. We went during the happy hour and got some good Mexican beers along with the meals. One plate should be enough for two but we ordered two entrees. They were both delicious.

Well we ate there with our grandson and were really impressed! The service was very good and the server was so pleasant. We were given our drinks and chips and salsa,but had... More

Stopped by the bar/restaurant next to my hotel. Sat at bar and ordered a beer and fish tacos. Great service by the bartender. The atmosphere was awesome. A soccer game on and the food was very good. Beer was very cold and love the lime slice on the bottle. Great staff and was a fun place for a tired traveler.

We had a good dinner with tasty mexican food and beer. The hotel is large and offers a good range of cuisines. Ideal place to rewind with mexican food.

I've eaten in this restaurant on numerous occasions, and I've never been disappointed. The food always comes out hot, and service is what I expect, but I can't really say that it has ever exceeded my expectations. The portions are fairly large, and my favorite drink is the horchata, which is rice juice. This restaurant has live entertainment in the... More

La Escondita II was very good. The food was fresh and the customer service was great. We tried the 3 sampler platter and each one of us enjoyed our meal. It was three of us and two had passion fruit drink. We spent $60 including tip which wasn't bad. If you like authentic mexican food, you cant' go wrong. It's... More

We were in the mood for some great Mexican food so found this place listed on Trip Advisor as a choice in the area. We ordered Margarita's which were being featured for their happy hour special and they were fantastic!! The best ever. Then we ordered our dinners, but were not that impressed when it arrived. The combo platters were... More
