In the words of my boyfriend, "The only bad thing about this restaurant is that my girlfriend won't shut up about it." This is true! This place is AMAZING. We have gone twice and will be going a third time this evening. The vegetarian burrito is so nicely prepared, authentic, and delicious. You can definitely feel the passion of the... More

This place is a waste of money if you are visiting. They will over charge you on your drinks. 2 margaritas and meals for 3 should not be 75.00. The food is not 75.00 quality at all.

05/29/16 I am as Mexican as it gets and this place has amazing authentic Mexican food! One of the workers there, Javier, made the experience so amazing that we had to go back two more times for him and of course the food! The margaritas are also sooo good and pretty darn strong. Overall, this place is amazing and the... More

While looking for something different and off the beaten path we stumbled upon this cute Mexican facade and wanted to know more. We checked out the menu online and decided to give it a go. Definitely not a mistake, we enjoyed every minute. The staff was friendly and attentive. Never waited long for any thing. I had a combo of... More

The restaurant is a nice and rustic. The food was not that great compared to other Mexican restaurants I have been to in Puerto Rico.I asked for the steak burrito which was great, but the chicken one my husband had was mostly mashed potato with chicken. Also, the rice was really under-cooked. Their nachos were not that bad, but prices... More

we explained what dish we were looking for, and waitor assured us he knew what we were speaking of, but when our food came it was no where close to the meat pudding we were wanting

This place is simply not good and a waste of money. If you think this is good Mexican food then you are clueless. Margaritas were good.

Went for a late lunch. Grabbed a lunch specia chalupa and the lamb tacos. While the latter was absolutely stellar, I felt rather ignored while I ate, despite the quiet hour. The chalupa, while less impressive would have made a great snack later if they hadn't decided to pack the chips on the table but leave an entire chalupa. Was... More

Dropped in after a day of shopping. Was not disappointed. Closest Tex-Mex to TX we found. We ordered the margarita and then had another! So far the best margaritas in Puerto Rico we found.
