We started with the fresh guacamole which was very good. Very traditional. Tried the queso. Pretty good. Large portion enough to take some home. Then onto the Cenote burrito carne asada and whole pinto beans. I had mine without rice. Very good burrito. Quality tortilla...with lots of flavor. I’ll be backMore

Tried and true many times, this restaurant never fails to provide excellent food. Their fish tacos are great! The only problem is that the word is out,and it can get very crowded at peak lunch and dinner times. Go early. Closed on Mondays

This is a very popular restaurant so be sure to make a booking. There is plenty of parking outside and the restaurant itself is not large inside but very comfortable. The servers are friendly and efficient. The food is outstanding, portions are huge, nicely presented...and very keenly priced. Not to be missed!More

The chef traveled all over south america and mexico to learn the diifferent flavors and combinations and put his own spin on them. We go there at once a month .I have never had anything I did not enjoy. Give it try I am sure...you will like it.More

This place is in a little strip mall with limited parking. Not sure if they have problems with their A/C or if they prefer keeping the restaurant at an uncomfortably warm temperature all the time. We ordered basic dishes (tacos and burritos) but it took...them 50 minutes to bring out our meals which, by the way, was not worth waiting that long for. Other people around us were also complaining about the poor service.More

This family-owned establishment was highly recommended by locals and it was delicious. It wasn’t the typical Mexican fare, as each dish has a little something extra — and tasty. We would have gone again, but we ran out of time.

We arrived on a Wednesday night and were told there would be a 40 minute wait. They had such good reviews that we decided to wait it out. It ended up being an hour wait. They aren't really set up to have parties bigger than...4. The service was very slow. From getting/refilling drinks, taking order, receiving food, getting boxes/check, everything was SLOW, friendly but slow. However, the food was really yummy so the night wasn't a waste. We had: chile con queso - my hubby and son were fighting over this! Enchilada bowl with carne asada - nice size portion, very tasty and well balanced flavors Shrimp Fajitas - probably the only bad dish. It wasn't very well prepared, the white rice was undercooked, the guacamole had some skin in it, some of the onions and peppers in the fajita blend were burned. Cod - Best dish ever! The fish was perfectly cooked, the sauce was perfect, and the entire dish was a joy to eat. 2 cheese enchiladas - hubby said there enchilada sauce is on point shrimp burrito - huge portion, well cooked shrimpMore
