Mmm, mmm good!

We stopped here on our way back to the Finger Lakes and so glad we did. The restaurant was bright, clean and inviting with very nice background music that wasn't too loud. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. The portions were just right. We will definitely return the... read more

I was not greatly impressed but I will start with the positives. A clean lively restaurant with plenty of business. I was a bit confused to why they were using cheddar cheese on many of the dishes so I asked. The bar tender said they use to have an authentic white Mexican cheese but the locals prefer cheddar cheese. Odd....... More

We were going to go to Qdoba and spotted this place behind it. It looked brightly lit and welcoming and we wanted a sit down service, so we chose to go here. Very friendly and accommodating staff. We ordered two of the combination plates. Mine had skirt steak that was like rubber. The chile rellenos were bitter and did not... More

If you are looking for an American place to eat Mexican food it is your place. It is not 100% original but is closed! It has a good prices and good taste better than another places. It is my second choice in Erie and Meadville to eat food from my country.

Went to the place Sunday evening based on the reviews. However, not impressed at all. The veggies in the fajitas were dry, the Tortillas soup was just bad with no flavor. I am giving 2 stars as the service was good.

My husband and I go there for a date night every so often. Love the chips and salsa (which by the way, you can buy and take home with you). Would tell people to go there for Mexican food.

We stopped right at dinner time. Although there were a lot of diners we were seated and waited on right away. The salsa and chips were good and plentiful. All of the employees were pleasant and professional. Our food came out quick, hot and just as we ordered. It was a delicious meal in a pleasant, clean environment. I will... More

My son and I went there on Tuesday and the food is good. I got a chimichanga and a chile releno and my son got a chalupa and chimichanga the beans and rice were awesome and everything tasted so fresh. When in erie we will stop again, the amount of food was too much for me to eat.
