I love this place. We live in Weavervile and every time we head down the hill to shop we eat here. The staff is friendly and always remembers my husband and I. Never had a bad meal.

I had the enchiladas special and they were very small but the beans and rice were excelant. The salsa was way to mild for my taste and the chips were ok.

This restaurant is colorfully decorated and has good selection of dishes. The wait staff is experienced and competent. Although I would not rate the food outstanding, we did enjoy it. It's fairly convenient for the traveler and certainly a better choice than the alternatives close to the freeway.

I know, you've been to restaurants before when you were warned of hot plates. At this restaurant the plates are so hot you can't move them without some means of protection. And, be careful of that first bite! The temperature may surprise you. It is likely too hot and you may need to reach for water to avoid being burned.... More

We were a party of 5. The waiter was professional and efficient. The dishes ordered were large and well made. I will definitely go back when again in Redding

This place is colorful and fun. The staff are upbeat. However, the food is mediocre at best. As cool as the place is inside I wouldn't want to go there again for blah food.

Service was excellent and wait staff was attentive and well trained. They had a packed house and everyone held it together. Carne Asada was great, Chicken Mole was Ok. I will go back when traveling through Redding :)

The food lacks spice, but I guess it's the best mexican we could find in Redding. The drinks seemed watered down. But it was a good place to visit with friends.

This restaurant does a good job of accommodating a large group for lunch or dinner. The food is good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is fun and colorful, very much like Mexico. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. You can get in and out during lunch pretty quickly.

Thank Leona M
