We were here for a rehearsal dinner and after party. We came back the next morning for breakfast. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food and large selection. Prices were really good as well.

Several family members myself included breakfast, lunched and had dinner at the restaurant. The menu was extensive and the waitstaff helpful and courteous even when we asked for separate checks in small groupings.

Typical mexican fare, but served by friendly waiters and a lovely authentic outdoor patio. Good chips, great margaritas and a straight up old school big-shell tostada. Fun!

We had a family dinner here during our trip to Ojai and enjoyed our evening. Seating is available inside or on the nice patio. Everyone had something different from the menu and all said they enjoyed their dinners. I had the Chicken Fajita's and found the dish a little bland but tasty. The chips and salsa were very good.

My first review, at the time, I felt was spot on. But like the NFL refs now say,"After further review..." My opinion is that the food has defiantly improved! I would avoid the house margarita and opt for the Cadillac. The OUTSIDE patio still rocks! The employees rock! Like I said, the food has defiantly improved but it's still more... More

Nice summer evening- everyone is packed onto the outside patio- very crowded! Food is tasty as usual- service is somewhat slow.

Great place with fabulous food. You will enjoy the patio which is very comfy. The food was excellent and service even better. Portions are large and value is there in both food and drink. Go, it is a safe bet!

Mexican means Margaritas in my house, and these Agave Margaritas were very good. The sizzling fajitas were good with all the usual sides, and the Enchiladas Verde was the best I have ever eaten, though I missed the guacamole, and ordered a small side portion, and it was excellent too. At 7pm on a weeknight it wasn't heaving, just pleasantly... More

Dinner was just ok. Fresh chips Elsa and guacamole were good. Hoping for something more authentic. The ceviche was too warm. The dinner sizes were humongous . The fresh margarita was delicious.

Thank ycrad
