The food was fantastic, the enchiladas, the tacos, the creamy chicken dish, barbacoa were all delicious! The chips and salsa were the best we've had in a long time, my wife said she would rate this place a 5 based on the salsa alone! Our server, Jonathan was very personable, attentive, and totally on the ball, his recommendations were spot... More

They have a combo appetizer at this restaurant that gives you so much food that is really delicious. I really enjoy going there. The servers are friendly and give you very good service. All of the food that I have tried has been really good.

This little place has all one would wish for in a Mexican restaurant. The staff was friendly and authentic. The food was really good. I especially liked the Tilapia. The margaritas were big and a good value. I would return here anytime.

Love this unassuming little restaurant with great food, sweet service, and outstanding margaritas! We have visited three years in a row. The owner was not present this year on any of our three visits but the staff is sweet and provided friendly excellent service. The chili poblano plate is hands down the best dish we have had. The smoky sauce... More

Small place, good was good and good size portions! Service was very good and Jonathan was a wonderful busboy-assistant and worked harder than everybody and was such a delight! Owner visited our table, but my only complaint is the margarita was like drinking a shot of tequila! So... You decide, but I highly recommend!

We had the molcajete. Highly recommend it. Big enough that it fed three of us. There was 11 in our party. Every one was happy. Awesome food and service.

Sorry to rate it so badly because other reviewers had a good meal/drinks here according to Trip Advisor Reviews. But this place was terrible. It was totally filthy. The server would not look us in the eye and acted like she was being subject to untold abuses by having to wait upon our table. Had to send the guacamole back... More
