“Awesome Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

This was a great place to eat. I love Mexican food and enjoy trying to find the best Mexican food place where ever I go. I had the Chicken Fajitas and a beer. Cooked perfect! The best part I thought was there Salsa and it came in a very large bowl. As some places are weak on there portions of salsa they give. These guys did it great. Also the service was fast and friendly. I suggest checking this place out, very good.

“Bueno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2010 via mobile

I do a lot of work in Cle Elum (charming town!). This is the classic local mex place. I judge mexican places first by the quality of the free Chips and salsa. Chips are always warm and fresh. Fantistic, hearty salsa. Food is always good, hot and. "to big" portions. Cute little place. Also a very nice lounge off to the side. Entire place is CLEAN and lively.

“Great Mexican Food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

See my other reviews....I feel like I "KNOW" mexican food. This was very good, especially when you take into account that you are thousands of miles from Mex and in the middle of nowhere.
