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

THE PLACE to dine anywhere near Lompoc! The signage makes it seem like another taco stand. The place is elegant ! Great manger, beautiful server, top shelf bar. Fine Latin cuisine, nowhere near expensive. Since they had 2 pages of shrimp on they menu, my guess is that they knew what they were dong. Order Fajitas de Camaron, wow.

I enjoy the environment and food at this Mexican restaurant. Their combo plates, fajitas and the big Puerco Burrito is outstanding. It's nice to have the full bar available so you can get a real Margarita with tequila! I've visited a few times and have had just one problem with the cheese not being totally melted in the cheese enchilada... More

I had the carne asada and a virgin strawberry margarita. It was excellent! The meat was tender and cooked perfectly. Guacamole and salsa were great. I got a seat right away but never got a bill so I had to go up and remind the waitress. Otherwise a wonderful meal.

We visited on a sunday night. Staff seemed a bit on the slow side & as if they were too busy talking behind the register to pay attention to squat was almost a full packed restaurant. Good was average. Nothing special or outstanding.
