“a surprise lunch”

We were in town for solar work and drove by and said this is it. Stopped in and the rest is fine history. Good food, nice folks, and a relaxed but special atmoshere.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Of all the Mexican restaurant's in the imperial valley, this one is one of my top 2. Great food all the way around! Nit only mexican food but they also have a couple of American staples like burgers etc on the menu. But where they shine is their mexican food. The seafood is fantastic. Now some people mentioned in their previous reviews about their menu prices. Remember you're not just getting beans and tortillas. And if your version of mexican food is meant to be cheap then remember that's also the quality of food you're paying for. They have a wide variety of drinks, from soda pop, mexican natural waters and alcoholic beers abd mixed drinks. Good staff and a clean place. Healthy servings and they sometimes have live mexican music on the weekends.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were driving to San Diego, CA and decided to go and eat Mexican food. We selected this restaurant at random. The food was very good including the chips and salsa. The chips were served with a bean sauce and green and red hot sauce. The service was excellent and reasonably priced.

“Did not care for it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

This place was busy on a Sunday afternoon and service was not great... Food was not very good compared to other places we have eaten in El Centro. Special Quesadilla was ver greasy and heavy.. Food left me feeling yucky .. Will not eat here again ...
