4 adults and 3 kids . In and out in a touch over an hour. Waiter very nice and helpful with kids orders. We had the queso fundido. It is ok. My opinion is that it has too much stuff in it. (Mushrooms, onions, peppers, chorizo abs just a little cheese. ) I just like baked cheese and a little... More

This is an okay place for Mexican. Chips were okay and salsa was good. Nothing special about it. One thing for sure, cost is pretty steep. A tiny bowl of guacamole was $3.50. A carne asada burrito was $9.99. Service was below average as well.

Heading home to Gladstone. Pulled in the parking lot and went in, and one of the guys said sorry we are closed. The owner said come on in we'll feed you. They closed at 8 and we got there at 8:15. We got our food and it was great. I sure miss this restaurant in Gladstone. I would highly recommend... More

So glad you came in and that we were able to accommodate you. I'm glad you came in even though the closed one in Gladstone would have been closer for you. Hope that means we will see you more often here. More

The service is great, but the food was not that good for what they charge, and quantity is also not in line. Will not go again.

The Manager at this restaurant is hands-on - which made for a great evening. He made some recommendations - one we loved, one we thought was just okay. We will be back and try some of his other recommendations next time. The staff is attentive and made us feel welcome! We will definitely be back for more!

This restaurant serves very authentic food from the region of Jalisco, Mexico. If you are looking for Tex-Mex, this is not the place for you. Many of the dishes will be a new experience for you, but the food is delicious. It is clean and surprisingly formal in the atmosphere. Not your typical Mexican restaurant.

Thank you for coming in and for the feedback. You are certainly correct, we don't specialize in Tex-Mex and always appreciate our customers for trying our food and for the comments. Please join us again soon. More

TripAdvisor failed me on this one. We chose this restaurant because it had one of the top ratings in Blue Springs. But what we discovered is that serving "authentic Mexican food" isn't the same thing as serving "good" authentic Mexican food. Nearly everything we had at this restaurant was a fail. Okay, the chips and salsa were okay. But it... More

Great place for family, good food, also good chips and salsa, but didn't have salt shakers on the table. Host and staff were very friendly, and it was a comfortable place.

Nice family restaurant with real Mexican food. Enjoyed the burrito and chips and salsa. Usually add salt to the chips, but there were none on the table, but they were very good like they were. Very attentive staff, and nice place for good food. Also had beer available.
