“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

My friend and I had not seen each other for quite some time. We chose this restaurant for its mutually convenient location. We were seated in one of the booth niches to the left of the entry. It could not have been more perfect. It was quiet, secluded, and the perfect place for sharing long awaiting secrets and life events. We made it clear to our server up from that we were in no hurry and would compensate him in his tip for tying up his table. We had a wonderful two grande margarita each lunch each and departed very happy after leaving the server a 50+% tip.

“A Real Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I don't usually rate restaurants, but I need to in this case.

Ambiance, wait time and service was fine. Food was terrible, overlooked and tasteless. My wife was almost nauseous after a few bites of her fish taco. My chicken combination was unedible and the teens fared equally poorly.

Will not be back, ever.

I had much better Mexican food at a small California chain called Santana's.

“Average food, average wait staff, average ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went here for brunch one day despite some questionable reviews. We were one of the first ones there. We order a few egg dishes (omette, etc.). Both were average at best. No real flavor (thank goodness for hot sauce). The wait staff seemed more interested in sitting in the back talking than waiting on our table. The decor is nice but other than that there isn't a reason to go here. I'd skip this place and go elsewhere for brunch.

“Back Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We go to this restaurant everytime we're in the Coachella Valley as we think it's the best Mexican food ever. This time they are celebrating their 10 year anniversary and have a special menu. We ordered off of that. I got empanadas which were light and delicious served with polenta and refried beans and rice. My husband got the double burrito which was huge. Served with beans and rice and he said it was fantastic. Each of these items was $10 which was an incredible value. We also shared a carafe of sangria. Our server was Cathy, whom we were lucky enough to have serve us again. We sat in the same booth as last time with the same great server. She is so knowledgeable and friendly. She takes time with everyone. An absolute delight. Our whole meal, including tip was $42 and we tipped 20%. We were quite sated when we left and are looking forward to returning in August.
