I've eaten here quite a few times and as usual on this visit the service again was attentive, quick and courteous. There aren't very many wine choices but you pay less than half for a bottle of Merlot than what we're used to in most other restaurants. All the usual suspects are on the extensive menu. I typically go for... More

A group of friends and I ate dinner here on a Sunday night. The wait staff was more than friendly, and our waitress in particular made sure our drinks were filled and our taste buds were satisfied. We all ordered something different, and none of us were disappointed! I ordered a shredded beef chimichanga, and it was huge! The portion... More

This place was busy on a Wednesday night (probably every night). The service was fast and courteous. The beer was cold and the food was well prepared and tasted very fresh. I ate a burrito which reminded me of Freebirds back in Texas. Both are giant tortillas stuffed with your choice of ingredients- very satisfying. I Will return when I'm... More

I've been here many times and always had good service. The flavor of the sauces is also very good and I would recommend the Molcajete to anyone who is interested in a new dish, and my girlfriend loves their fajitas and the Carne Bronco Tampiquena.

I went here with friends for a birthday dinner. It was nice to find they had a full bar cantina. We all had margaritas, and they were quite tasty. They offer more than a few flavors, my favorite is always the cadillac margie and there's was very good. The salsa was tasty and spicy, but not too hot. For dinner... More

There were 15 of us with reservations dining at 6 p.m. and we were seated immediately. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. The menu was large with lots of small variations on popular Mexican dishes. We were served very quickly for such a large group. My friends really enjoyed their choices but I think I had the pick...

This is our favorite Mexican food in town. We enjoy the tacos, burritos, quesadillas, flautas & albondigas soup. We have eaten there often & it's always good.

Who would have thought that in Lompoc, CA such a great Mexican restaurant would exist! The food was so good, the staff was friendly and the place was nice and clean. The amount of food that I received was well worth what I paid for it!

I normally do not give bad reviews but I feel this one needs to be said to save Lompocians. I had been here before about a year are so ago and it was fine, no complaints. I thought I would come in for breakfast. I have never spent so much time trying to read the complex menu. We were served... More
