The key to this little Mexican restaurants appeal is Javier and the rest of the staff. They are the most personable and pleasant people that any restaurant would be lucky to have. The food and drinks are excellent, but what brings me back here are the smiling faces and the occasional serenade on guitar. We'll keep coming back as long... More

I have eaten at every Mexican Restaurant in this town and by far this is the BEST!!! It is authentic and that is hard to find. The meal was awesome and we love when Javier serenades the restaurant. Do not waste your time trying the others, this is the BEST!!!

The beans and rice from my combo was very good. My burrito and taco were small. The overall opinion was just ok. Not great and bad. I would go back and try a specialty dish. Their beer is cold and the margaritas are tasty.

Appears to be popular with "regulars" and does a good take out business at lunch. It is small and appears to have 1 wait staff and 1 cook. The menu is limited, and when you order an entree it comes with nothing but the burrito, enchilada , etc. No lettuce, tomatoes, nothing else. I ordered a burrito it came with... More

The food was outstanding, the margarita was just right, and Javier even serenaded us on his guitar as we finished our dinner. Don't pass this place by. Oh, yeah, and the fried ice cream was the best we've ever had.

We have a huge range of tolerance for spicy food in my family and they were able to adjust their food preparation to perfectly fit our taste buds. The people were very friendly, courteous and attentive. The price became less and less relevant as the evening wore on, because the food and service was so good, but the even the... More

Great food and friendly atmosphere every time! We've even been serenaded by singing and guitar playing. We try to make it here for dinner a few times a month. I get the combination enchilada meal and my husband gets the chicken burrito.

Excellent food, friendly staff, great home-like experience. Restaurant was extremely busy when we went so it was a little noisy, but the food is well worth it. Will go back.

The food is authentic and fabulous. We come here at least once a week. Xavier (the owner) and his family have become part of our family. It's a must if you are in St. Augustine and hungry!
