We stopped to grab a bite to eat and a drink late afternoon. We both had the steak tacos and a large margarita. I highly recommend the steak tacos - great flavor at a great price. You can also get an 18oz margarita for a dollar more than the regular one! Homemade salsa and chips were also very good.

We enjoyed their outdoor setting for a sumptuous meal. Great, friendly wait staff. Cerveza served in a chilled glass - nice touch. Comp. chips and fresh salsa. Guisado DePuerco: tender chunks of pork in an awesome red sauce, with rice, beans, lettuce, choice of tortilla was the best! Hubby had Carne Asada w/one Chile Relleno w/same sides. Same happiness rating... More

We came on a Sunday night in August just for a snack. The two servers were clearly busy and we waited a bit for a seat, but they were friendly and pleasant in each encounter we had with them. We sat on the patio and since we weren't in a hurry or super hungry, it was no big deal to... More

This is an excellent Mexican restaurant. We had dinner here a week ago on a very hot, humid evening in late July. It was a perfect night for a couple ice-cold Margaritas - my wife's idea. She had a Strawberry and I had the Original with, of course, the salted rim. What a good idea it was: they were great!... More

Came upon this establishment while strolling the downtown area. My husband is gluten free and they have options available for corn tortillas! Great service and outdoor seating with musical entertainment!

This was probably the best meal we had in Galena. Service was excellent! We sat outside and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxing. The margaritas were super yummy and the food was delicious. Large portions too!
