We went on a Friday afternoon about 3 PM - it was not too crowded and the service was great as was the food. We felt prices were reasonable, quantities of food were just right and delicious.

Walking distance from our Bed & Breakfast, we had dinner--fish tacos and margaritas. The fish tacos were amazing--the best we ever had. The margaritas were also amazing--refreshing and flavorful.

My husband and I went here after reading some of the reviews, however we were a bit disappointed. I grew up in San Diego, so I can be a bit picky about Mexican, but neither of us really enjoyed our meal. It was just okay. Its a really quaint little place, very cute. I really enjoyed the feel of the... More

This is a smaller place, very limited parking (no overly large vehicles) and seating is limited, but the food is anything but limited - it was mouth watering delicious. I ordered the pollo chac-mool and... More

This place doesn't look like much and I honestly was pretty skeptical walking in. But it will surprise you. Best chips and salsa I've ever had and the food was delicious too. Small portions compared to most Mexican restaurants so you may want to order extra. During our meal, our waiter (possibly the owner) who was VERY friendly and sociable... More

You know you're in a family run restaurant when the owner comes over as you enter so he can shake your hand and thank you for coming! His two son-in-laws are in the back cooking and the food was so good! I had the chicken fajita taco salad and my husband had the tacos and enchilada. We were so happy!... More

Good Traditional American Mexican food at reasonable prices. Popular with locals because of the owner Javier, who makes a very homey and local atmosphere
