Definitely one of the best mexican food I tried in recent times. Every trip of mine will have at least one mexican meal.

Food was very good, portion size was excellent for the price paid. Service was great throughout the meal. Would certainly come back the next time we're in Bend.

We came here because of good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This is a great restaurant and easily accessible. The waiter was very nice, the food delicious and the decor nicely done. Yep, we would return and will.

I was a little concerned initially as it took the waiter over 10 mins to take our order after we sat down. But the food came to us not 3 minutes later. Except for the mentioned initial delay, the service was quick and effective, if maybe a little over exuberant. I will give the service an A-, food a B... More
