We stopped here based on the other reviews and we were not disappointed. The prices were average and we did not feel it was over priced. My wife and I both had the shimp dish with rice and beans and were very satisfied. We were there on a Saturday afternoon around 2pm and they were busy but not packed. Service... More

Ate here with the family while passing through the area on a road trip. It happened to be Valentine's Day, and although there was a 20 minute wait it was well worth it. The Mariachi band was making the rounds, and the owner stopped by our table to check on us and took time to tell us the history of... More

We always try to stop at this great spot while driving to PA. The food is always so good - much better than any Mexican food we can find in the Boston area! The service is attentive and the owner often makes time to stop by and say hello. If you happen to be in Fishkill - try this restaurant.... More

Both my husband and mother in law who are both Mexican loved their food as did the rest of us! They had molcajete bowls for sale and I was able to get one! The food was authentic Mexican food!

If you are looking for a typical Mexican restaurant in the US then this restaurant is not for you. If you are looking for a more flavorful Mexican experience then this is your place. Went with a party of 9 and everyone was more than pleased with their dishes. The only disappointments were the bland tableside guacamole and the OK... More

fun atmosphere, strolling guitarists, colorful, feels like you are in Mexico. The food is delicious, service friendly and entertaining. And if you love cheesecake, caramel and bananas you must try their chimi banana dessert!

The food was tasty, served in adequate portions by friendly staff. Been there on a few occasions and haven't been disappointed. Worth the trip.

Having lived in Texas for 10+ years, this place has best TexMex and Aztec specials outside of Texas. The service is fast. They also have a bar. Always busy but waits are reasonable at less than ten minutes.
