Get there early, this place gets really crowded. Food is great, as is the service and drinks. My son brought me here. I usually don't like Mexican food, but I love this place. TRY IT!!

Went there for a birthday dinner (10 people of different ages - 25 to 80) and we all enjoyed it tremendously. The food, the drinks and the service were excellent. We ate the over sized plates of tasty food, drunk many generous drinks and for atmosphere, we created our own. Many others agreed as the place was packed. It is... More

It's in a strip mall and does not look like much from the outside, but inside has that Mexican feel. Its got a nice bar and seating area. This in my Go To Mexican restaurant in Haverhill. It's authentic and it's good. Don't order the large Margarita, it's the size of a kiddie pool, unless you want a DUI. Big... More

My wife and I live in Hampstead and this is about 4 miles from our house. It's definitely our go-to. There is a Mexican spot closer but not nearly as good. One thing I would say is that the food doesn't travel all that well and we strongly prefer eating there to bringing home. Everything seems pretty fresh though. We... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall "type" location with limited parking. It really deserves its own free standing structure. Although we had to wait, the food, staff and atmosphere was excellent. The only minor thing I would change is to make the complimentary chips thinner. We went on a Tuesday where it was Taco night. .75 cent hard shell... More

Check out the specials because they seem to have a lot of promotions. We go here a lot for take out but people always seem to be having fun inside. We always get one meal and split it. Take out comes with chips which is nice.

Tacos were fantastic but during my last visit my high priced Absolut Vodka drink was not top shelf. Ever since I was thirty years old, (I'm sixty now) I noticed that cheap vodka would cause me to have a weird, compressed cartilage feeling in my lower neck and the top of my spine after going to bed after drinking. It's... More
