Dinner with friends

The Chili Rellenos are excellent. Make sure you are hungry or like to take some for leftovers. If you are someone that appreciates the spicy side of things. Ask for the habanero salsa. It's not brought to the table with the "milder" salsa.

I ate with a very large group. We had a limited menu to expedite our stay. Chips salsa and fresh guacamole dip was great. Main dish portions very filling. Chicken burrito was big enough we couldn't finish and very good. Staff was over the top helpful. That doesn't always happen with large groups. Good Mexican food. Worth going again.

Food and service were both excellent. Much improved from previous visits. Waitress was excellent. I understand if you have a box to go at the end of the meal they will hold it for you if you are going to the movie which is across the street.

First time in Ogden and this restaurant was close by so we stopped in. It's decor is very nice. My friend and I shared an order of guacamole and the fish tacos along with their chips. The chips are addictive (2 baskets), the guacamole was really good, and the blackened fish tacos were excellent. Just the right amount of heat.... More

We decided to get there a bit early to avoid the noon rush. It takes a while to be seated and just as long to be served so be sure you plan ahead. Interior appearances are inviting and the areas are clean. Food is excellent and abundant. Tortillas are huge but just the right texture and flavor. The enchiladas were... More

Wife said I had to try the guacamole here .. she was right ... great chips, large portion, buttery texture with guac chunks! But then I find the real reason ... she is in love with the shrimp tacos!! The Cochinita Pibil a favorite as are the Carnitas.

Good texmex type food. The queso dip is made at the table and is super delicious. Celiacs beware that the fish tacos have breaded fish (it doesn't say this on the menu). Parking can be challenging. There are a few other things to do in the area like a movie theater and a wave rider/rock wall place.

Very good Tex Mex type food. Service was excellent and it is a great place for couples or family. Fish Tacos were absolutely perfect and they were very accommodating about the kids requests.
