Chips a little thick for me and the salsa was very bland (approaching tomato juice). Portions were large but again both dishes lacked flavor. El Patio frozen entrées have more zip. Lack of flavor was disappointing but in a Mexican restaurant is unacceptable. Service was good but not enough to overcome the lack of taste. Much better places even in... More

The salsa, if one could call it that, was little more than V-8 with a couple of onions. Tasteless. The view was good, and atmosphere was okay. Food was substandard and could be purchased in the freezer section of Safeway for half the price. Won't be back.

Went there the First time and the food was ok not real spicey what I would call a white mans version of mexican food, but I like spicey food. My first impressions usually tale the tale quickly. If the salsa the chips the margarita and refried beans are good the rest will follow. I would rate these bad to fair... More

The mexican food is just so-so here. Fine for locals who want a night off from cooking, but I would not recommend for out-of-towners looking to explore Liberty Lake.

Biggest plate of Mexican food I have ever had. Not good for my Heart Burn, but was delicious. Very friendly staff. Will definitely visit again when in the area

We finally tried this restaurant and our thoughts were....strange. When we arrived there was only one employee working the front. Not only did he seat us, but he took the order and went behind the bar and made the drinks! Other employees seemed to arrive and they all stood around and talked...in Spanish of course. The creepy part was the... More

It seemed to be a one man show running the place but he did a good job. $2 beer at happy hour and fine selection. We ordered a carry out and over ordered as it had a full bag of chips and salsa. Nice place.

The food here is always good! Get a patio table to enjoy the views of the links and enjoy the sunshine. I've visited this restaurant twice, and had delicious HUGE portions of food, but the service is slow, expect to turn dinner into a 3 hour event. Order the margarita! Yum

Took two of my friends for lunch. We all enjoyed our food and the service was great. They just forgot my sides when the brought my food. Great mexican food, very fresh. Great view of the golf course. I will be back. Lunch specials.

Called about 10 minutes ahead of time for a table for 15 on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon. The table was ready for us when we arrived and our server couldn't have been more friendly. It was basic but good Mexican food. Not super over the top but everyone in our party was pleased with their order and glad we... More
