We were nicely surprises at the quality and quantity of the food served here. We were greeted promptly by our server who was very attentive the rest of the time we were there. Drinks are reasonably priced, the food served hot and quickly. What would expects from a neighborhood median restaurant. A good value for the money.

Really fast and tasty. There were endless chips and dip and a lot to eat on your plate. We asked for the kids food first because they were getting hungry and it was there in under 8 minutes. Great Mexican waiter. I have no idea what he was saying....

The menu is diverse for all tastes. The portions are huge and delicious so come with an appetite. Dining is casual with table conversation easy to enjoy. Service was also very good.

The service was horrendous! Every time we asked for something they forgot to bring it to us. The food came out lukewarm as well. Very disappointing meal. Needless to say, we will not be back.

Nice family restaurant with a Mexican ambiance. They have a variety of the usual Mexican dishes. We had chicken enchiladas, tamales, burrito. The margaritas are average as well. Nothing outstanding but fine for us because we were visitors hoping to find something that was satisfying but not too expensive. We had enough leftovers for another meal the next day.

We heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The portions are huge (served on platters no less) and the salsa is quite tasty. We were stuffed and ended up taking part of the meal home. Also tried the cayenne cheesecake and it was an interesting spin on a traditional dessert. The service is... More

Had an opportunity to eat at this Mexican restaurant while traveling through Lacey. What a wonderful find. The food serving is very generous and delicious. The daily special that is available 7 days a week is a great deal for a very low price. The staff is very attentive without being over bearing.

Be sure you get a coupon before you go in, and then the lunch tastes even better! There are coupons for this place listed everywhere, just look it up online first.
