I've been here several times with friends, and we've always been disappointed. The chips are mediocre, as is the salsa, and the food is no better. The service has been good, but who cares? It's also in a most inconvenient location. I am totally surprised...More

This is a really great restaurant. The food is really great. I had a combination plate with a taco and enchilada with beans and rice and it was so good. Will go back when I am in the area.

An inauspicious location, out in the industrial flats next to Cathedral City. But once inside, the place is clean, bright and cheerful. The food seems a bit more complex, more modern than your typical Mexican place, with a personality all its own. But all the...More

On vacation in Palm Springs my wife wanted Mexican food. I'm not a big fan of Mexican food, but we both enjoyed our meals. It is located in a small strip mall, but the place is clean and the service was excellent.
