Lunch here is a great value and service is always good. First they start you out with chips and fresh salsa. When you run out they will gladly bring more if you ask. Next up is a free cheese mini-quesadilla, tastes great with the salsa on it. Lunch combos are around $8-$9 or you can get a taco lunch for... More

My Father and I spend time together one afternoon a week and I pick where we have lunch. It is a special time for the both of us. I picked this restaurant because we both love Mexican food and we have never been there before. I pass the establishment all the time and I was excited to try their food.... More

My wife and I love this restaurant! We've been coming here for the last 5 years. We love the food, the atmosphere and the waitstaff. We shared the vegetarian plate with an additional taco. The bathrooms are very clean! Let's face it, that's important! My wife ordered a margarita and I got an El Toro. Then I ordered a sangria.... More

Ok. I just like to get good, we'll prepared food when I pay for it. Is that too much to ask? What happened to the chef taking pride in their food? I ordered the Enchilada Combo plate. Complimentary Chips and salsa were served. The Chips tasted store bought and the salsa choices were marginal at best. Very little flavor and... More

The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive. They brought the customary chips and salsa immediately. We didn't know that they also bring a free mini cheese quesadilla to everyone too! We had already ordered guac appetizer, so heading into entrees we were a little full! Entree portions were normal size, well seasoned, great flavor and not smothered in cheese. After... More

This was a very nice and clean conveniently located Restaurant where the food was great, prices were reasonable, and the service was even better. Seven of us came here for lunch, and sat in the cozy outdoor setting.The accommodating waiters rearranged the furniture for us, so we could all be together. One of the things we noticed immediately was the... More

Food tasted good for Mex in Saratoga Springs NY. The 'frozen' margaritas were not frozen but liquidy and cold;not iced and not made correctly. Lots of choices on the menu and they affirmed substitution requests but didn't bring the food out as requested.

I certainly would not call this excellent or authentic mexican cuisine. However, it certainly wasn't bad. Quite frankly, it was better than I thought it would be for a touristy area like this and being in upstate NY. The veggie burritos were good, as were the chips and salsa. I ordered take out and the price was drastically different than... More

We stopped in for lunch, and were very impressed by the super-attentive waitstaff. The food was very tasty - not fancy looking, but yummy- and they brought us complimentary dessert. We will definitely be back!
