When we first came in, this guy that worked there just stared at us for the longest time. No one greeted us. I had to ask him if they were closed. He said they were open and we could sit wherever. We did. Food was bland. Servers and people that worked there were not friendly or inviting. Two of our... More

This restaurant looks very common but serves excellent food quickly with gracious service. Set aside preconceived notions and treat yourself. By the way they surprise you with dessert after dinner!

Based on other rave reviews I'd like to add more comments. On a Thursday evening around 7 there was only one car. That was surprising since this place was ranked #1. We were well taken care of by sweet smiling waitresses especially since few were there. A local dish was recommended, the Puerta de Luna chile. Interesting over cheese enchiladas... More

Came here with family and friends while in town for a triathlon. First, service was not good. It was almost tag team style where you couldn't really be sure who was supposed to be your server... Which was problematic when they weren't attentive enough to refill drinks, get an order right, or even remember to bring one of the members... More

Nice stop. Great food and good service. The chili rellenos, carnitas burrito, and chocolate shakes were superb! You will not be disappointed!

Stopped here based on other reviews, and options are limited in Santa Rosa. Restaurant was cute, old fashioned but remarkably clean and tidy. Servers were smiling and friendly. Free chips and salsa.... Salsa is pleasantly spicy! I had the taco plate and it certainly exceeded expectations. Shells were freshmade and hot, soft and crisp. Food was fresh and I had... More

This place has ZERO hospitality. Never found out about the food as we walked out after poor treatment. Several large tables had obviously overwhelmed the only server, who looked at us and said "anywhere is fine"...as we walked in. We put two tables together for our family of six, and she and other staff members told us we couldn't put... More
