Great pick for taco Tuesday. The friendly, overworked staff did their best to keep my drinks refilled. Had the most incredible carnitas tacos. Flavorful with a kick! I'll be back if I ever make it to Santa Clara again.

Had a good margarita but really poor service from 3 different people during my visit last week. Food was OK - pretty good mole. Salsas/hot sauces just didn't match other places I've been to.

Had a nice quick meal. Ordered chicken nachos and they were tasty although there was a few too many beans for my liking they still tasted good. The chips were excellent. My waiter was extremely nice. All in all a nice lunch.

This is a better spot for Mexican than La Paloma or some others in the area, but it's inconsistent. Usually the daily specials are worth it. The rest of the menu is bland tasting and getting more and more expensive. It's a shame and I...More
