The menu takes a spin on traditional Mexican food. We found the food very flavorful and a bit spicy for our taste. If you enjoy a little bit of spice you will love the food. We ordered the queso dip as an appetizer and it...More

Not a typical Mexican restaurant, but better than most of the “imitation” restaurants in Disney Springs. Good food, good service, not too expensive. Would definitely go back. Negatives ? Not many vegetarian choices, perhaps a bit rushed (food came out very quickly.)

The greeter was not that welcoming but the food was really good. The service was excellent. Different Mexican food. Not run of the mill !

Rick Bayless does it real nice for Mexican food. Prices are decent and the portions are reasonable. The wait staff is superb and attentive. Atmosphere is great. Walked in for lunch. However, make a reservation for dinner. Would eat there again!!
