It must be pretty difficult to create a successful Mexican restaurant in Central California where the competition must be very tough - but this Mexican restaurant is a standout - and is still being run by MULTIPLE generations of their family, including the founder! MUST visit this LANDMARK restaurant for the food, the FUN decor and the staff - ALL... More

Salsa for the chips was flavorfull. Salad dressing was good. Food served piping hot. I love their chicken mole. It's the only meal I ever order. The refried beans and rice are nothing special. Friendly staff and unique decor.

Been going here for years. Great food, great service. The owners are a super sweet couple. Try the homemade thousand island sauce on the chips and the food. It's SO GOOD!!! Very nice atmosphere. LOVE the "California Taco" and "California Enchilada".

We had a Taco, enchilada and tamale. The tacos were big and very good, tamale dry. We did not eat the enchilada's, the sauce and meat tasted like cinnamon. We asked the waitress about the cinnamon taste, she said ,other people have said the same thing. Beans and rice were good, however, we will never go back. They only have... More
