Recommended by The Groveland Hotel, this restaurant was busy and clearly full of local residents. The Mexican was plentiful, fresh and tasty. We very much enjoyed our meal here.

This place caught my eye on the way through Groveland. I'm so glad I went there. Incredible menu of classic Mexican dishes plus some specialties I hadn't even seen before. I had some stellar enchiladas, but there were about 10 other things I wanted to...More

This place has delicious Mexican food! The atmosphere is a bit lacking, but the food does not disappoint. The bar is limited to beer and wine. Lots of hikers to be found here during the season, but it’s a hot spot amongst locals also.

I was hoping for some mouth watering carnitas, wasn't quite as good as I was hoping for, but my companions loved the enchiladas and chili colorado. I could drink their sangria all night though.

We shared the ‘couples fajitas’ $30. Highly recommend this dish. Not heavily seasoned. On the light side, but you can heavily top it with guacamole and sour cream. We took back almost half the dish. Well worth a return visit.

Food was good and good value. It's open until 10pm which is great. Our waitress was a bit off hand. Perhaps she was having a bad day

We had the pleasure of having dinner here during our recent stay in Groveland. There was a bit if a wait, but everyone was friendly and it was fun waiting in the lobby and seeing the locals interact with each other. Other than the tourists...More
