Food is always amazing! Haven't had anything I didn't love. I crave the green salsa. Now that we don't live close by it's always on our agenda when we come to town.

We had a family meal here last Friday night when we were able to score a last minute reservation. The complimentary 'chips' are tasty but the two salsa's steal the show--one was a tangy tomatillo salsa and the other was a slightly spicy red pepper salsa. We ordered the side guacamole and it was seriously wonderful--I could have stopped there... More

Four of us went out to dinner. The quality of the food was very good as was the service and the quantity. We all had Mexican dishes and everyone loved what they had.

We didn't know what kind of food we where getting into just looking for a quick lunch. We found it to be a great upscale Mexican place. The food, service, and atmosphere were all great. We'll be back.

Went on a Friday evening, had reservations for a group of seven. Seated right away and the food was really good. Had the chili relleno plate. Wife had the tacos. Everyone in the group was pleased with the meal. The staff was friendly and efficient.

The food portions were very large and the variety was excellent. Most restaurants in Ogden are more family style food. This was definitely a will return.
