A very good restaurant or should I say Mexican food restaurant. We really enjoyed the environment surrounding us, very cultural in its design. Food was delicious, we had the triple Ceviche appetizer which is plenty for two. The rest of the Fam had different Mexican dishes all real good. Only negative- parking and at times service which we felt food... More

Used to go here when I worked in San Bruno. Went back tonight on a whim. Food was wonderful, plentiful, with good service. Wish I lived closer. Full menu. Many seafood and vegetarian options too. Not fancy, just great food and great service.

We got dinner here since we were staying next door at the hotel before flying out. The Queso is excellent... A very large portion. Enchilada was good as was my daughters tacos. She didn't care for the grated style cheese on her tacos, bit otherwise was good. My husband got the chicken fajitas. The complimentary salsa had a nice light... More

We stayed in the Super8 next door so went primarily for the convenience. I ordered the Baja Cerviche (fresh fish cured in lime juice) and my fiancé had the biggest steak I have ever seen. The food was simple but very tasty. Service was quick, and the staff were friendly and attentive without being over your shoulder all the time.... More

If you're staying near San Francisco Airport, you could do a lot worse than this. The restaurant itself is a bit old and the seating, particularly in the booths, has seen better days. Still, for a quick Mexican fix, the food was more than decent and the cocktails acceptable. We had a mix to share - chicken quesadillas, a serve... More

Went for a birthday celebration with friends. Service was fine. Interior is very shabby. Sangria glass tasted and smelled like disinfectant. Not so with margarita or beer glass, however. Drinks are weak and beer selection is minimal. Had ceviche and chile relleno and cheese enchiladas and spinach enchiladas need tostada. All very mediocre and rice and beans tasted like they'd...
