Some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The chips and salsa are wonderful. Everything I have had here has been excellent. Laid back atmosphere. Clean with friendly service. Highly recommended!

This may have the most authentic Mexican food in Lawrence. Great flavors with a kick of spice. Full service bar including wine.

They were swamped when we got there, but they were super nice and brought our drinks promptly. My son and I had soft tacos which were fabulous! My husband had the pablano enchiladas. He said the cheese sauce was cold and the waitress told us...More

Very good flavors.. more authentic flavors and meals rather than gringo Mexican restaurants. The mole sauce had a nice slow burn and the green sauce had great taste. Definitely worth a stop if you want some real Mexican food.
