Best mexican food around. Margaritas are to die for. Great food and great people. I have been going there for many years and i can only give it the HIGHEST praise. Never had a bad meal.

Excellent food. 10% takeout discount for seniors. Google map on the phone was not accurate (located it very near Taco Bell - haha!). It can be hard to find coming from the north. It's on the east side of the road, 1/2 mile south of a Mobil station. Worth a few u-turns til you spot it.

We made a reservation for 12 and it was ready. The complimentary chips and salsa are yummy. Food was plentiful and very tasty.

This is the type of restaurant that when people leave Faribault the one thing they want to do is eat here when they come back! Great service, cute little restaurant, delicious authentic Mexican food and great portions. Very reasonable priced, not to mention their chips and salsa given to every table, Yummy! I crave their rice and beans, just about... More

Saw the small orangish restaurant from the road and it was isolated from town and I was worried. No cars there and it opened in 15 minutes. But, by noon it was packed and we jsut finished a great Mexican lunch. Great decor, great waiter, very good food. We had a party of 10 and all really liked the place.... More

We had all kinds of dishes and everyone was pleased. I had huevos rancheros and it was terrific, Faribault is lucky to have such a fine restaurant for Mexican food.
