Their's is the best ceviche I've ever had anywhere, including back home in Los Angeles. The portion sizes are excellent and the drinks can't be beat. Impressed!

The food was just ok. Service was slow. Hard to understand the staff. More English speaking personel, please.

The good here is good...the salsa is pretty bland, but some people like it that way. The service was a bit slow, due, I think, to several large parties in three restaurant at the same time. Our table of three got lost in the crowd. It was a bit noisy too, but not do much that we could not have... More

We love authentic Mexican restaurants. This was definitely one of the best we have been to. The white cheese dip is the best ever.

enjoyed it very much. a bit noisy for my taste but probably comes w/the territory of the bar/restaurant. food & service were good for the $$, and we had more than enough for a take-home box & another meal.

The food just isn't good. The burritos are small, the fajitas meat is low quality minus the chicken and the margaritas are very high quality. It just doesn't compare to Lunada.

We have been to several in the Columbus area (The one on Dublin Rd is probably best) but they are all good. The specials and portions are unbeatable!

This is my favorite (authentic) Mexican restaurant. The fresh-made tortilla chips are usually hot, and the salsa is addicting. Always exceptional service, great food, and decent sized portions. I'll probably only visit here twice this year, because I'll definately blow my diet if I show up. :)
