This might be the best Mexican restaurant in KC. Food is amazing and service is great. Will definitely return when in the area. My only criticism is the lack of Mexican music.

Overall good value for dishes you can order. Seafood, chicken, pork, and beef dishes . I like spinach enchiladas and beef fajita's. Among the best in KC area. Can not beat good Santa Fe or Albuquerque , NM restaurants.
