“True value!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

While I spend 15 dollars for an entry somewhere else, I only spend about $10 here! I get great service, I love how they keep watch on your drinks and refill them without you asking for it. And most of your non alcoholic beverages get free refills! I like the tortas and the arrieros, quesadilla for appetizer is well served with lots of chicken. The decoration is pushed to a side but it takes up the whole wall its fun to look at all the mexican made pottery, very unique! Also the woman's bathroom is very very nice but the hallway isn't pleasant. And I hear they need to pay more attention to the men's bathroom! Definitely worth a lunch!

“Very good Mexican food at very reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Stopped by La Tablita restaurant for a late lunch on the day Mexico was playing Brazil during the World Cup. The gathered crowd was loudly cheering for the Mexico team and the place was very noisy. We arrived as the game was almost over (Mexico and Brazil were scoreless for the match) and the crowd drifted out and the noise level returned to a level one could easily converse. We ordered lunch specials priced at $6.95, a great value. I ordered a beef taco and chicken enchilada and my partner ordered the green chicken enchiladas. Both came with rice and beans that were very well cooked. The chips and salsa were terrific. Fresh hot chips and a spicy salsa to accompany them and refilled after we ate the entire basket of chips. The place is located in a strip mall by a Dollar store in Cathedral City. For very good authentic Mexican food try this restaurant. You and your wallet will not be disappointed.

“Not fancy but really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Located in a small strip mall, this place is fairly easy to find. It shares a store front with a sushi restaurant. Good old fashioned Mexican food the way you'd expect it to be. Not fancy but very tasty and a decent value for the money. Servers are friendly and food comes fairly quickly. I had the chili Colorado with rice and beans and it was very good. If your looking for old school Mexican food for a decent price, give this place a try!

“Just what I like.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Good old mexican food at a reasonable price. This resturant is very close to where I live. It is also the most inexpensive too. All the basic Mexican favorites, with out any modern twists. Happy Hour Margaritas prices too. If you are a Modern Yuppy, go some where else....
