“Average Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Just your average Mexican restaurant. Food is certainly acceptable. Nothing really bad or really good to say about the place. Go if you're craving Mexican food and you're on the Peninsula. Otherwise, choose something else.

“Service + Happy Hour = Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Authentic Mexican restaurant located on the edge of Long Beach. Happy hour margaritas and tacos made for one fine dining experience. Excellent service.

“Mediocre Food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

We were there early and after the food was served, we had to chase her down to get drink refills. I had a chilli relleno and a sope and my wife had chimichangas. The relleno was good but the sope was tasteless and my wife said her chimmi's were terrible. I hate to run down a local Resteraunt but this was very expensive for the value received and service was poor considering how empty the place was.

“Standard Mexican faire”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

I ordered the super burrito with chicken instead of beef, it was enormous, but tasty. The rice and beans were totally standard. Two group members ordered the chicken enchiladas and were very satisfied. The chips and salsa were nothing special, but hit the spot. My one complaint was that the bathroom was quite dingy and smelled bad. Overall though a nice change from all the regular seafood restaurants in Long Beach.

“Pretty good Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

We liked the food here. The salsa was a bit bland, but the tamales, chimichangas and enchiladas were great.
