We've been here twice, a year apart. Both times had excellent food and great service. It's real Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Don't get there right at dinner time on weekends. The place is small (cozy). Last night was Tuesday, arrived at 5:30 and got the last table. It's also little hard to find parking on Main Street at times.

We continue to come back to our favorite Mexican restaurant in Sonora. Excellent margaritas, good food and a friendly staff. When the weather warms up you can sit outside on the cute patio.

In all the times we've eaten here, we've never been disappointed. The food is consistently good with never a long wait. I love its authentic Mexican decor and the outside seating is charming.

Nice tasty fajitas and burittos kept the family happy and cocktail specials kept the adults happy. Quite a bit of wasted food tho as portions were big for us.

Stopped on our way home one evening to try out the one downtown. Our usual is the Columbia location or occasionally Twain Harte. Great Chips, super crispy ( I live for great chips!) which I demand.

Made a stop here based on other reviews. The food was good. I will have to return and try one of their specialties. The staff was above and beyond; extremely attentive, friendly, and appeared to be happy to be working at this restaurant. The staff was so pleasant that the food could have been bad and I would still give... More

Good Mexican food at reasonable prices. Nice decor with outside seating available. It's easy to find as it is right on Washington Street in downtown Sonora.
