Really good food in a location without a lot of options. Not a lot of atmosphere, but we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the service. We ordered chicken fajitas which were excellent. Our server was extremely attentive and did everything she could to make sure that we were well taken care of. If you like... More

Small (10 table) and informal place along 101 that serves some of the better Mexican food I've had lately. Had tacos al pastor and the chicken mole burrito, both of which were excellent!

All of us enjoyed our meals. Make sure you try the posole (only available on the weekend). Tacos were great, as was the fish burrito, combination platter, and egg and chorizo burrito. Great service. If I lived nearby I'd be back to try more menu items

I had a chili relleno and a chicken taco. Neither had much flavor, especially the chicken taco. My husband had the chicken mole burrito and he liked it. He rated the experience as average and I definitely think it was below average. I would not return.

Get the potato tacos - you won't regret it! Amazing!! Also had a chicken mole burrito and it too was absolutely fabulous. Wonderful little place - we will be back again someday when we return to Crescent City!

We stayed for 2 nights in Crescent City and looked for a restaurant that served some vegetarian options. We found this restaurant, but doubted that the food would be any good because the decorations looked a bit cheap. How wrong we were! I ordered 3 taco's with fried potatoes and although I was full, I ate them all! I would... More

Always good inexpensive food and pleasant people in a no-frills setting but with some really tasteful wall prints which might not be noticed.

I liked the food the prices are good but the smell of the restaurant is horrible. We are not going again because of the smell. It sucks because we don't have that many choices.

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.
