We loved this place so much we went here twice - one for dinner and then once for lunch. It was amazing! I love Mexican food so I was extremely happy to find a great one in Virginia Beach. I had the Chimichangas. The three of them came with rice and beans and a great side salad (with avocado) for... More

We expected the usual tex-mex style of cooking here, but found that it was more of a south american style. They served typical chips before hand had a nice bar with lots of local clientele but the food was just not what we expected. I don't care for this style, but others probably love it. Service was very good and... More

Coming from nyc there are a lot of Mexican restaurant here, I must say this is one of the top ones I've been too. Service was amazing and food was even better. Don't let the outside fool this place was great. We went once for dinner and once for lunch great both times. Best restaurant in the area

Went here two days in the row we so much liked the fresh fish ceviche they make out of tuna, mangoes and sliced red onions. Caution - real habanero pepper garnish! Kids loved the chicken tacos and quesadillas. Don't order premade Guacamole, go for the table side one. They open at noon, so if you are an early lunch eater... More

Loved this place! The service was fast and efficient and the food was fresh and delicious. We got the tableside guacamole and we scraped the bowl clean! The staff was not big on smiles or small talk, but they were courteous and the prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We saw this place from our hotel room. I was tired if the normal kid fare. So we went here. It was nice, a little mom and pop type place. Prices were very reasonable and service was good. Food was yummy. I would absolutely go there again!

Service was really bad. We had Vincente wait on us. He greeted us promptly at the front door. Walked us to our table, tossed down our menus and walked away without a word. He did come over shortly after to get our drink order. I specifically ordered a margarita without salt. My wife ordered the same & I made a... More
