“Overblown, if you've had good Mexican food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Pretty marginal, if you live somewhere with decent mexican food. A killer if it was my only choice. And shockingly expensive, compared to what I'm used too. Dishes I'm disgusted at paying $10 for in Texas were $18.

“A bite to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My travel mate and I wanted something to eat before heading to a wine tour up the road. The establishment is very well kept, the staff was helpful in making choices for a quick bite to eat. I had ordered a grilled chicken burrito. The portion was large :0 and very delicious. The food taste like as if you were in some one's home. If ever in the area make sure to stop in for a meal or drink.

“Ah Pacifico, How Do I Love Thee?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We frequently travel "over the hill" from Sonoma County to enjoy a wonderful lunch. There are many things I have not tried yet on the menu but it's my plan to do so - You can order the usual Mexican food that everyone seems to order - you know, tacos, enchiladas, Mexican beer but I want to try some of the stuff on the other side of the menu! My two grandsons each managed to polish off 2 Pacifico burritos and those burritos were just short of huge! Love their black bean option and salsa. We usually take a container of salsa back "over the hill" to continue the experience. There is also usually a box of leftovers that travel home with us. Recommended.

“Cinco de Mayo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were there for Cinco de Mayo, so take this review with a lot of grains of Margarita Salt. Good food, good service, great drinks and a very festive atmosphere with an awesome Mariachi Band and dancers. We have no idea what a normal night is like, but were more than satisfied on May 5th.

“Nice outdoor seating area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Nice shady outdoor seating area on the main street of Calistoga. Mexican food, good preparation, but nothing fancy. We have been happy to find a place to eat on Mother's day and enjoyed to be able to do so outdoors in the very nice climate.
