Love their chili rellenos. Good atmosphere but the service tends to be very slow, not always accurate and the servers are not always courteous. The bar has better service than the dining room.

All the Mexican food standbys with many excellent house dishes. All reasonably priced. Good for area for large groups. Nice bar, excellent Tequila selection.

There don't seem to be many options to eat on a monday evening, so we found by accident this mecixan restaurant. The food was actually quite good, but the staff didn't seem to actually want to serve guests, and the interior is very tacky and cliché. For the price and food quality it is worth a visit though.

Food is good, homemade corn tortillas, good hot sauce, tasty tacos and enchiladas, but service is extremely slow. You will think you have been forgotten many times. So if you have nothing but time, worth the stop. But if you are in a hurry you may want to pass.

Food was pretty solid, and service was good. Here's my list of Pros/Cons: PROS: (1) Good food (2) Generous portions (3) Lots of options on the menu CONS: (a) The place is strangely split into two dining rooms. One is DEFINITELY nicer than the other half. __ Bottom line: Probably the best sit-down Mexican option in Hanford, so long as... More

I have visited Hanford 3 times in last 6 months for business. This restaurant was recommended on my first visit and I've made it a point to come here again and again. Service has always been great (don't understand those who post different) and food is delish. I'll be back

I won't ever come here again. The head waitor was mean the last time I went. I went to ask if I could use the bathroom for my five year old son. She is usually nice, but since the parade was going on, the owner was only letting customers use the bathroom. I understand it's a business, so I said... More

The service was slow even though the restaurant was not crowded. Our party had a taco, enchilada and house burrito. All three were the blandest we've ever eaten. I don't like spicy but these just had no flavor at all. The taco was mostly all lettuce--had very little meat in it and no cheese. I wouldn't return.

Love the food here, the servers are attentive, the only issue is the interior is kinda dingy on the older side of the restaurant.
