This was very average Mexican Food, nothing special. My husband had a veggie burrito with Chicken and I had chicken tacos. It was acceptable, but not outstanding.

The atmosphere is very casual and simple. The food is much like a fast food slop shop but the staff is friendly and many items on the menu. It is what it is, Food is ok so don't go into this place expecting fine dining.

Delicious traditional pizzas, large variety of Mexican dishes and one of the best cheeseburgers in town. Lots of value for your money. I especially like the taco salad, the carne asada burrito and the pizza. Family friendly dining room, very nice outside seating, which is...More

Honestly we only went here because it was about the only place open on a Tuesday evening in Julian. I had heard it was pretty good, but as we drove up to it and went in, we were having second thoughts. The dining room and...More
