The atmosphere was typical for this type of place, seemed relatively clean. It took a long time to be waited on, our food was delivered the order was wrong (mine was wrong and my husbands was not what he ordered!). We had to ask for silverware three different times (twice after our food was delivered). The food was meh, fair... More

Tried this place out for the first time for lunch. Great food once we finally got it, had to chase server down for refills on drinks. Finally found someone to take our money while waiting for a check. Screaming kid in booth next to us did not help much - will try again on a slower day maybe.

We loved the place! They were quick with the food and the kids played in the stream behind while the adults visited!

One of the few places open on the 4th of July in the area. We didn't set out for Mexican, but were glad we found this place. Authentic Mexican food. I was expecting the traditional chips and salsa, but was surprised when the server set down warm bean dip (which was delicious, just a hint of heat). She then pointed... More

Great Mexican food and ambiance. Most of the furniture and decor collected or built by the owner. Table side guacamole is a generous portion and so flavorful! Basket of chips comes with a side of hot bean dip. Loads of flavorful salsas and dips to snack on. My last visit I had the Tostadas Tulum, the shrimp were fat and... More

The atmosphere is good inside or out, but outside there is a stream that goes by and it's very peaceful. The food is good and a reasonable price.

In most Mexican restaurants, some allowance is made for folks who do not want very spicy hot food. I was unable to get anything to eat except chips and salad which was even reasonably mild. If you like your food very spicy hot, this is the place for you, just not for me.

This wasn't by any means the best mexican food I've ever had, it's ok. Food tasted bland to be authentic mexican. Service was good, and we could walk from our hotel to here.
