The restaurant was a short drive from our hotel. Although there were other options within walking distance, Mexican food was in our mind. It was half an hour before their closing time when we got there, four park rangers were just finishing their supper. Hubby said: it must be good if the rangers eat here. And all agreed and recommended... More

We love Mexican food so we stopped here to try it. The service was wonderful, always asking if we needed anything. The food was good but not the best Mexican food we have had. The chips and salsa were very good. We would try it again.

Sorry...four out of five of the family got food poisoning after eating here. I'm pretty sure it was the frying oil, something just didn't taste right.

First of all, we had fantastic, attentive service. One of the happiest moods I've ever been in to leave a tip! Servings were large and prices very reasonable!! The tamales could have used a bit more meat in them, and I personally did not like the taste of the red sauce on my burrito supreme, but once I took it... More

The food is unreal! So good and the waitress couldn't have been nicer! I would go here again in a heartbeat. I wish I lived closer so I could. We had a party of 7 and they had no problem accomediating us. Very happy to have visited this restaurant.

Just like you we looked at the reviews and wondered, "is their taste and impressions like ours". Well we where very surprised and glad because we were HUNGRY! My wife had the chicken chimichanga w/ rice and beans, she enjoyed the meal very much (the chicken was a bit overseasoned). I had the chicken and cheese quesadilla w/ sour cream,... More

Stopped here for a late lunch on the way up the coast. Nice middle of the road American style Mexican food. Good chips, good salsa etc. Very clean with a nice staff. Prompt service.

We were hungry and checked Trip Advisor. We saw a lot of great reviews and decided to try it out. The owners are super awesome and the service was excellent. We had a party of ten people and we all got our food in about 15 min. The food was excellent and the service was great. I would recommend this... More

My wife is not a big Mexican food fan, but not only did she call the food excellent, she has twice commented this afternoon how good lunch was. The food, service and prices were excellent. The only thing lacking is the setting. It's a very simply decorated restaurant, which is probably how they keep the price so low.
