Ok Food-Great Location

Great location in Downtown Vancouver. Staff are friendly but the restaurant is out dated and food just ok. Too bad because it is a great location with a nice patio with a view of the Academy.

The food is good, I think the place is empty because of the service. I live a stone's throw away, and it's a toss up whether or not I want to eat there. One night I ordered my meal, and an order to go. The server came to me as I was almost done with my meal to tell me... More

I have never had a worse median themed meal. The service was fine but the food tasted old and not well prepared

We love Mexican food, so we thought we would give it a try. Got there about 12:30 for lunch and there was only two other people in the place. The booth seat was severely lacking in springs and needed replaced or repaired. I heard the couple behind us complain about about the taste of the water saying it "tasted like... More

This should be a 2 star rating for some of the things we experienced, but I give it a 3 star because the kitchen is trying to do a good job despite the rest of the operation. Dinner with friends on a Sunday at 5pm - a few people were dining but the restaurant was mostly empty. A short woman... More

Good mexican food, spicy salsa. Very economical. Not much on atmosphere, great parking and easy to get to in downtown Vancouver.

I didn't find anything special about this place to set it aside from any other typical Mexican restaurant. The building itself is old and the parking lot, entrance, and inside are in need of some renovation. They are kind of dingy looking. It was pretty quiet on a Monday night which is typical for the area but it was only... More

We were hoping for a good plate of Mexican food and were sadly disappointed. The food wasn't very good and the salsa was pretty weak in the knees. The chips tasted like they were cooked in rancid grease. We don't plan on eating here ever again.
