Portions are too small. I will not return because I felt a bit cheated by the price and portion size. It is nice that the food wasn't greasy though like other Mexican restaurants.

On nice evenings the outdoor seating is very nice for drinks or even dinner. In a nice area of downtown.

The owners of this restaurant do a nice job at providing flavor without the grease. Really good guacamole. While visiting from Texas, this will definitely do when you need a Mexican food fix.

My husband and I ate here on a gift card recently. We sat outside and the ambience was charming with Shakira in the background and a nice summer evening. We loved the chips and salsa and both thought our entrees were delicious. My only complaint was the service was a little slow. Other than that, a great eat!

Definitely not great good. Small servings and lacking in flavor. The salsa was good, if you like hot salsa. The server appeared to also be the owner, and the manager. She was very nice but in over her head. I would not recommend.

Considering we eat Mexican weekly and frequent downtown, we were so excited to hear this restaurant was coming. We drove past many times and noticed not many people dining, so were put off trying it for a while. Went last week and were SO disappointed. The food is terrible and overly priced. Although the service was great, there was only... More

This is a locally owned, family restaurant. The food is well prepared and good quality. I enjoy a bit more zip to my food so I always ask for more of the homemade salsa. It is outstanding! The arborgatas- mexican meatballs with rice is my favorite. Drinks are good and great service. I also favor the bean dip with their... More

I've been and tried here 3 times. I've tried a lot of different things (well, 4 different things anyway) -- granted always for lunch. But I gotta tell you, from my point of view -- this could be an awesome gem -- but they need new recipes that have SOME flavor -- anything. I have never in my life eaten... More

My family recently discovered this place and it is truly a gem. Everything about the place is inviting, the location, atmosphere, friendly staff, and most importantly, the food. We had a large party and several of us had the enchiladas, along with chimichangas and burritos. From the presentation to the taste, the food was great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a fun spot in downtown Winston-Salem, but the menu needs to be spiced up a bit. Good presentation and yummy salsa. Also need to take the chili dog off the menu - that doesn't speak to a very authentic Latin feel. The margarita should not be glowing blue. A more natural color would have looked/tasted more appealing.
