While staying at the Ritz Carlton we ventured out to find a great Mexican restaurant. This restaurant was beyond what we had expected. Yvonne was the best. She helped us choose dishes that were delicious. Their drinks are fantastic. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Had a good authentic Mexican dinner. Drinks were nice size and good. Menu has a large variety of different kinds of food to choose from so would never have a problem finding something to eat.

My favorite dish here is Campechana- Mexican seafood cocktail. It is a perfect balance of shrimp, scallops, abalone, avocado and finely chopped onion and cilantro all in a wonderful tomato sauce. A bargain under $10 and enough for two to share. We also had their perfect margaritas, chicken and fish tacos, Ablondingas (meatball) soup, and of course very nice chips... More

TSM in CatCity is a find. I've traveled to Mexico several times and have eaten is some fantastic restaurants while there...but TSM beats them all. TSM came recommend by the owner of the PSprings hotel I was staying at (it's his favorite place for Mexican food in the valley). I was just blown away by the menu choices - each... More

We stopped here after a long flight from Canada, and we're not disappointed as the food was outstanding, just like the service. It was very busy and we waited a little longer for the food to come out- the host apologized, as they were waiting for the county to approve the expansion of their kitchen so they could be more...

Large portions go hungry or you will leave food on your plate. Clean place, friendly staff good service, Great margaritas.Salsa, chips, rice and beans average that's good. Beef burrito with enchilada sauce. The beef inside was dry and plain and not enough sauce outside to help.maybe something else on the menu next time so i can give a better review.

Taqueria San Miguel does Mexican coastal cuisine right. Despite the "strip mall" façade, Taqueria San Miguel welcomes diners in a small, clean, bright dining room. The restaurant is seemingly family-owned, and the friendly servers treat all diners, both gringos like me and Latinos, like "regulars.". The salsa served with warm chips was a treat: with roasted chiles, tomatoes, onions, and... More

My best friends and I ate there last Friday, primarily based on Trip Advisor reviews. What a waste of time/money. There is no way this place should be rated as highly as it is. The food was chewy, tasteless and some of the worst Mexican food I've had anywhere...even in Mexico! Save your money and try somewhere else, like the... More
