“Really good local Mexican restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Of all the non chain Mexican restaurants in Riverside, this has to be the best. Food and service are consistently good ... just get there early to avoid a long wait. The albondigas soup is made from scratch and never fails to impress. The chips and salsa are free and are replenished with a friendly smile ... salsa is great, by the way. We try to move around the menu, but are always satisfied. Last time I had the shrimp salad and will have it again and again. They also have a nice senior menu, which is discounted. And very family and large group friendly.
