This restaurant is sort of a Aztecs palace, even nicer, the food is very authentic and the flavors are exquisite. Came here for lunch on a Sunday, the place is fairly big and ample enough for groups. The waitress Gohar sat us down as soon...as we walked in and was very attentive our entire visit. We ordered our drinks and tried the Spanish Lemonade which was my favorite! So good very rich in flavor and the perfect amount of sweetness. I also tried the Mojito which was also on point. We also had the guacamole and chips which was really good thee guacamole was made fresh. For my main dish I ordered beef tacos and Onion rings. The beef tacos here are a must have! It had quality meat cooked to perfection and the tortillas were fresh handmade flour tortillas! They were so good and soft. They serve their tacos with rice, a black bean spread and cheese and they're a little bigger than your typical tacos so they were very filling. They have a number of sauces each one very delicious but my favorite was the spicy salsa. My son had a cheese quesadilla with beef and that was also really good he got the adult size although they do have a kids menu but my kid can eat so the adult size was more than filling. They also have desert which is nice! I had the Chocolate Brownie here and I was happy to see it was homemade and not the store bought kind. The flan was thick, rich and creamy and came with a dollop of ice-cream which was divine!!! Overall my experience here was great! I would definitely come back and there seemed to be a lot of regulars there so this place is definitely doing something right! Service was fantastic, the waitress was super sweet and although it was a little busy she was very attentive. 5/5 recommend!More

I was there a few days ago. I'll just say, this is a nice place where you can relax completely, break away from reality, there is no glamour. As they say, beauty is in the simplicity. I like this restaurant so much

The burito and stuffed jalapeno were outrageously good. I'm not one to frequent the same restaurant, but I could go back here everyday for the rest of my life. 10/10, no questions asked. To whomever owns this fine establishment, thank you for bringing heaven to...earth. I mean Mexican heaven ;)More

We've always wanted to try this highly recommend restaurant. It's conveniently located in the centre of republic. The atmosphere is great and the service good, but the food has some difference from mexican authentic foods. Nevertheless, I'd definitely return.

I feel like a good judge here, I'm a Texan and Mexican food addict. Carne Asada was very good and a huge serving. The queso was very good, better than the canned cheese they serve at to many Mexican restaurants.More
