“Excellent Mexican!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were looking for good Mexican and reading other reviews. Planned on going to Peppers but so glad it was closed! This place is delicious and I highly recommend it. My father had the fajitas, and I had some steak for tacos - both were great. Chips & salsa were also excellent. Reasonably priced at about $45 including tip for two people with drinks.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had lunch. We shared a chicken burrito with rice and beans. The burrito had a good amount of chicken with beans and rice inside. The chips and salsa were tasty. The beans on the side were a little bland but overall the meal was delicious. We will go back when we are in PG.

“Good spot for quality Mexican food in Pacific Grove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

This is a simple but very good Mexican restaurant in Pacific Grove, which dosen't have very many decent spots for quality Mexican. The tortillas are homemade along with the salsas out of fresh ingrediants and the quality comes thru. Tacos are outstanding. Pricing is ok for Pacific Grove which is generally on the high side. Service is prompt and friendly. This might be a 3 star in Salinas, where there are more choices, but in the PG market it is 4 star if you just have to have your Mexican food.

“Great casual dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Down a side street near the Natural History Museum its worth the 1/2 block walk off Lighthouse Blvd. A couple visits have confirmed that good food and a large selection of beer is available to enjoy. The Salsa is awesome with more of a mole taste than the more common tomato hot spice version.
