No wait, nice old school Mexican restaurant atmosphere. Our order was taken promptly and to be fair, the waitress did ask us if everything was... More

Nice, clean, and friendly place. Average Mexican fare with some nice touches that make it above average. The Pork Carnitas with Salsa Verde were incredibly tender and tasty.

I eat here when I'm in town and feel it cant be beat. Always fresh and consistently good, the service is wonderful and the place is always clean. In my opinion, the best place in Brookings.

Consistently good food! Sometimes hard to get a parking place. Great margaritas, excellent salsa. I've tried many different entrees---all were good. I would have difficulty picking a favorite. We will go back again.

The place to go in Brookings for dine in mexican food. This place provides a quality atmosphere that is clean and friendly as well as a good variety of mexican cuisine served in medium to large portions. They also have a drive up take out window, but I recommend going in.
