We have eaten here several times. Went as a couple and with large parties. We have always had great food and fabulous service. We own a condo in Cabo and the food here is as good as we get in Mexico. Someone said it was old and dark.....I say it looks authentic!

Our waiter was on top of it, the food was ok, nothing special, but my flautas were dry, and you have to pay per flauta which is a first, and I was shocked. Others in our group ordered burritos, and they too said they were just ok.

My wife and I just had lunch at this restaurant and it was excellent, as usual! We started with margaritas, which were excellent! We had guacamole and beans plus the ubiquitous chips and salsa. She ordered the Carnitas and I ordered cheese enchiladas and a taco. We have never been disappointed in this restaurant and that is over a period... More

The interior is "old" and dark. People are nice and the menu has lots to select from. I have eaten here a few times over the years and the food is not great, and not bad, just average. Don't drive a long way to get here, but if you are in the area and want average Mexican meal stop in.

The service and the food are excellent. This is a great place for lunch or dinner with friends or a date. I have been visiting the place for 25 years and every time I leave satisfied.

It had been about 3 years since we last tried this restaurant. We went at opening time, 11:00 Am wishing we would be able to have breakfast, specifically Huevos Rancheros. Unfortunately they have no breakfast entrée’s. I was not impressed with the salsa although we loved the chips, thick and crunchy. The sauce served was ground beans, warmed, which was... More

We arrived on a Saturday night around 5:30 pm. Parking is on the street and there was no problem finding a parking spot. The restaurant was already very busy. There were just a few tables open. We were seated immediately. The restaurant decor is very nice, it is not your typical Mexican restaurant inside. The server brought out chips, salsa... More

I have to start with dessert. This place has some of the best flan we've ever had and we were very happy that it wasn't served ice cold like most is. If you've never had warm flan, you're missing out!! The menu is pretty limited compared to most Mexican restaurants, but that doesn't matter if what they serve is good.... More

We found this MexicAn restaurant on Groupon.... We completely enjoyed our meal... We stopped in during the week and the restaurant was really crowded.. The nachos and combo dinner were really good... The food came out hot, tasty.... The service was solid.. kept refilling the water and bringing more chips.. The red salsa is great.. We will be back..
