Stopped by here on a lark with my teen son while staying at the Hyatt next door (actually, he did eenie-meenie-minie-mo, lol, and thank goodness Jalapeños won out!). Ambience: Nice, roomy, casual, not too loud and not too quiet, and matched the Mexican theme. Server: I wish I could remember her name because she was terrific--friendly and conversational (but not... More

I love this place so much, been going for a decade. I live in Richmond now but if I'm nearby I stop in for chimichangas and cheese dip. The cheese dip is addictively good. I stop in once every few months and the manager still recognizes me.

So many Mexican restaurants are the same. What makes this stand out it it has is the best salsa. Service can be a little slower than the fast-paced other places offer, but that gives you more time to eat more salsa.

This restaurant is near the Residence Inn. I would rate the food average. We had a meat dish, and two salads. One salad was very good, one just average. The beef dish was not good-near so tough it was hard to chew. Mexican food is not something we eat often so we are not too experienced but on an enjoyment... More

Lots of Mexican type restaurants out there, but this place always makes me feel at home. From the great food to perfect Margoronas, they keep us coming back for more. The service, love it! They treat us like family and are always glad to see you. The amount of food you get is nothing unusual. I always have left overs.... More

In Chester for soccer tournament and needed a vegetarian friendly place. I had the fish tacos which were very good, and my daughter had the vegetarian burrito and a bowl of black bean soup All three dishes were very good. The chips and salsa were also very good. Not a fancy place, but nice. And the staff were all so... More

Come here most Sundays after church. It's a bustling, happy place; the manager always has a smile and a hand shake to welcome you. No matter what you order, it is always good. Love the guacamole! The Quesadilla del Mar is my husband's favorite dish. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating is because in the cold... More
