“Too pricey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great village location but to be honest have had much better Mexican food at several other restaurants in the immediate area.

“kind of bland, ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

nice little place inside, was seated right away. food came quickly, seemed like it was prepared earlier, not on order. felt like the sauces and cheeses were microwaved due to the consistency. if they were not, then there needs to be some change in method, as this is the appearance of both our meals. the food tasted ok, was not great, but was not bad either. I think it would be rated fair by most people, but I like good fresh authentic Mexican, and this was just so so. price was not bad but not as reasonable as some, probably due to the fairport location. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but I certainly wouldn't avoid it in a pinch. I was stuffed, and relatively happy when I left.

“Overpriced and not good!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Prices were way to high. Nachos had a weird taste! No chips and salsa while you waited....was told that don't do that! Way overpriced and food not good at all! Would never go back!

“A little bit of Mexico in Fairport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We have been to this restaurant about half dozen times and each time seems different which isn't necessarily a bad thing and most of that has to do with service which just is unpredictable. Been there and have had good service and good food even when busy and then others it has been very slow and not so personable. I do think the food is good, margaritas tasty, but I also think it is a little over priced but for some reason we do enjoy our time there so we do overlook price and keep going back. It is a cute place. We do have family members who have gluten issues and they were very accommodating to adjusting there entrees for them.

“Terrible food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Really cool location, but the food is pricey and awful. I want to like this place, but I've never had a good meal here. Would not recommend.
