My MIL and I dropped in for a quick lunch. It was our first time eating here. They were working on their Christmas decorations and it looked really nice and festive. The restaurant and restrooms were very clean. We ate shredded beef chimichangas and chili rellenos. The waitress was very helpful and made sure our order was how we wanted... More

Had a lunch break here from shopping. Was on Black Friday so really busy. Apparently the kitchen was having trouble as one of our lunches came out cold and had to be returned to be reheated. Also, beware, the lunch menu is not used on holidays. We didn't know it but Black Friday is a holiday at this restaurant. We... More

My friend and I went to Vista on a Friday night, they were busy (as I expected) we were sat quickly because it was just the two of us but not in the section with the waitress we wanted. We were told the waitress we wanted could not serve us. And that was fine I just wanted Mexican food. Then... More

This is our go to place for happy hour at the Lake. They have the best margaritas anywhere and the food is also excellent. The atmosphere is great and it's a fun place to go.

Close your eyes and you could be at any Mexican restaurant. Nothing special and that is fine--your normal Americanized Mexican food. The margaritas were fine but not hand crafted. There are better Mexican fare at the lake but this is fine if you are near the outlet mall.

Our food was hot and came out very fast. The two times we went over this last weekend we had great service and the chips and salsa were very good. We love thin salty chips and we went through two baskets.

Food was really good. Atmosphere was great. Our server was second to none. The salsa was very good. Guacamole was the best I have had. This place is convenient to get to and family friendly.

There was a menu change last year. Some of the things we enjoyed in the past are no longer available (Pork medallions) but what is left is still good food. Some servers have been there for years and all,old and new, are nice.

Thank Mike S
