“Mexican food which is authentic, reasonably priced, and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

This is not the greatest Mexican restaurant you will find, but it is certainly a good place to eat for those who like Mexican food. I went for a mid-afternoon meal and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. The decor was what one might expect, with draped dried olive vines and festive lights. I had the pork and found it fresh and tasty. Same for the pico de gallo and guacamole. The meal was served with choice of flour or corn tortillas. The owner gave me refills of soda and attention to my needs was fine. Tortilla chips were warm and fresh when I arrived. However, both the mild and hot salsa (homemade) tasted a bit sour (maybe some salt would have helped) and the quesidilla was cheese wrapped in an Anglo style piece of bread, rather than a grilled tortilla. The creamy Italian dressing with the salad also tasted a bit sour--perhaps it was yogurt based, which I am not used to. The portions were ample and, as I said, the prices were reasonable. There are a lot of Mexican restaurants in the area and next time I probably will try another one.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2009

sometimes called Peter's Place by the locals. Peter, the owner, works the restaurant. They produce very good food; very good value for the dollar. it's a quaint place; romance? well may be if the wife/girlfriend are in the right mood; but beware... you can over eat; and then you just want to cuddle. :-)

“Honest to Goodness Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2008

My friend/co-worker Jackie took me there for my birthday and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere, the personnel and the food were great. The food was authentic and had that homemade taste. The prices were reasonable. The restaurant has that family ambiance.

Somewhere that you would like taking your family , friends, business associates, etc to.

Try it.
