Worst food and service. Do not eat here. The ceiling leaks on the food and the food looked terrible coming out. I could have made better food. Not worth the money. It was disgusting. Such a disgrace.

Loved our dinner here. It was a last minute night out, not crowded, attentive staff, food was fresh and delicious. Love the interior decor and will definitely go again soon.

We used to go to the La Quetzalteca in Millsboro, but that location closed. So, we decided to give this one a try the other night. When we arrived, I was kind of hesitant since the exterior looked neglected. The interior was a pleasant surprise though since it was very nice. However, they need to replace the curtains in the...

We kind of stumbled across this place on our way back from a trip. Very impressed. Gigantic portions, authentic feel and taste, and the service was top notch. Will stop here again if I'm ever passing through that way again!

The owner of this restaurant and his family can often be seen working and making sure everything is satisfactory. Wednesday Margaritas are very good. The lunch specials are often an excellent value. The Taco Salad and the Queso Cheese are my favorites.

I've eaten here dozens of times. Good food at a reasonable price. The salsa is generally mild but sometimes it has some kick. My kids prefer milder salsa so you might want to taste it prior to giving it to child. Otherwise the kids' menu is nice and I always have the Polo Loco.

In our view this is the best Mexican food in southwest Sussex County. The food is good and their sauces are authentic. We have spent a lot of time in the southwest US so we are very picky and there are many places we will not patronize. We like this restaurant.

Fresh salsa and warm tortillas were nice. Carnitas were very good. Never had a poblano stuffed with cheese and wrapped in a crepe like egg topped with a soft tortilla and covered with a tomato like sauce. Kinda like a Mexican/Italian almost dish. Wouldn't order that again. Not sure I would return.

I like authentic. I love Mexican food. But I also love friendly servers with welcoming attitudes. I've eaten here 5 or 6 times in the last two years and have never had a great meal or experienced the type of friendly hospitality I expect. I almost feel as though my servers don't speak English, but I'm pretty sure they must.... More
