“Authentic Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Excellent Mexican food in a pleasant atmosphere. Quite crowded, and for good reason - good food at an excellent value. Service was quick and friendly. A fine place for a casual meal.

“Hidden gem of Arlington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

While the location and decor isn't impressive (in a mini-strip mall), the food and service were very good. The variety of Mexican dishes were plenty - our party each ordered something different and we had the opportunity to sample each other's. Each were prepared very well, great portion size, seasoned to perfection and reasonably priced. This is a great place for family and/or friends to have a nice casual dinner.

“Delicious; a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stumbled upon this place while walking around our hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. The strip mall location isn't very confidence inspiring but looks can indeed be deceiving. The food was authentic (no shredded cheese here, obviously handmade corn tortillas, authentic seasonings). The atmosphere was conducive to many different types of diners: we saw couples, families, friends, business associates. Margaritas are delicious. Staff is friendly and helpful and just the right amount of attentive. Definitely give this place a try if you like authentic Mexican-style food and drinks.

“Best Mexican Food in the Region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We love this Mexican restaurant. The food is outstanding and they have the best margaritas in town.

They need to move to larger spaces because the atmosphere is lacking and tight.
