“Huge plates of food!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This was recommended by the hotel we stayed at. It was walking distance from the hotel and we wanted some margaritas so we decided to give it a try. The margaritas were just okay nothing fancy but were nice to have after a long day of traveling. The food was very good! But could definitely be SHARED! I have never in my life seen so much food on ones plate! Wow! We sat out on their back patio which was a little too dark, could have used more light back there. The prices seemed a bit high to me also, but overall not too shabby. I would try a different place next time if we revisited.

“Maybe the most average Mexican food ever.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Not that we have many good choices for Mexican food in Bend, but La Rosa and Hola are at least better. Just because they have been here almost as long as I have does not mean they are good. And their "Perfect" margarita is made with mix! What a joke!

Food is good and ample. Not much different that most other chain Mexican Restaurants in the area.

“Yummy food and drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

This place has been there for a long time. That says a lot for this location. Restaurants come and go in Sunriver Mall. This place is great. Service is really nice too.

We sat outside and enjoyed chips and salsa and split carne asada tacos that were yummy!!
