Fantastic Mexican food

We had dinner here and loved it. It has a very authentic feel to it - the food was great (HUGE portions), the service was attentive & the price was just right.

Mexican food and menu, for sure; lively crowd, and reasonably good service. Admittedly, I have a negative bias to establishments that use different staff to deliver food to the table from the server -- because its hard to get them back to the table if anything needs to be fixed after the food is served; and also because they don't...

First in all fairness the good: the Carnitas in Verde is real tomatillo sauce and tasty pork. The chicken in banana leaves does taste like something I've eaten in Zmecico city. The wait staff was very nice! The bad: the top shelf margaritas are $45 a pitcher. There were only FOUR ice filled drinks that were NOT that good. The... More

My husband and I had fajitas and enjoyed them. The restaurant was very dimly lit, but proved to be a casual and friendly atmosphere. The place is small, so when it was busy, it was fairly loud and difficult to hear at times. I recommend it for a casual meal with friends. One of the better dining options we tried... More

Great food! I had a chicken enchilada and the chicken inside was delicious! Marinated! We went for lunch after a local recommended it to us. Lots of locals! couples and families with kids. We would definitely go back if we are in the area again.

Best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to north of the Mason Dixon line. I went there three times in three days while passing through the area, and fully intend to travel back just for this food! Delicious food. Strong margaritas. Live mariachi band. Friendly staff & patrons. Involved owner making sure everything is just right, he even gave us... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat. Always very busy but the service moves quickly. The Shrimp Tacos and Carne Asada are very popular. There are many menu choices and the children love the atmosphere. We have attended many family and friend events. You can also enjoy the table to table music and special Birthday attention. Nicely decorated... More

I ate lunch here with my family. The service was very good. It was comfortable for us to be able to speak in Spanish or English as we wanted. The restaurant was clean and attractively decorated. We really liked all the artificial flowers and vines in the windows, they made a very pretty backdrop for eating. The prices are on... More

Such a wonderful experience. They don't take reservations, but I called ahead to get on the list. We were promptly seated even though it was packed. The service was fantastic. The food was INCREDIBLE. I'm from New Mexico, where there's actual Mexican food, and this place was just as good as back home. Recommended to anyone. Fun, loud atmosphere. Do... More

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
