This place was a real treat. Read another review about this and figured we'd give it a try and we were glad we did. From the food to the service everything was great. Tara our server was great with information and service. The food was hot and delicious and the shot of tequila at the end topped off the night.... More

We can here for a late lunch. We were a large group. The food came out quickly and the servers were very friendly and solicitous. I really enjoyed my delicious vegetarian burritos and the warm corn tortillas with delicious salsa. Others in my group felt that their food was good but weren't as happy as I was. I was also...

Who would have thought some of the best Mexican I've had would be found in Cambodia! The carnitas and the al pastor tacos were my favorites!

I came here somewhat last minute, as I was passing through and in the mood for good mexican food. This restaurant is awesome. It has pleasant ambience, and I was happily surprised by the salsa they brought me almost immediately upon sitting down. While it could have been spicier in my opinion, the freshness and flavor was superb; an excellent... More

Nice outdoor cafe and very large indoor restaurant. We sat outside and were promptly brought salsa and chips. Lunch menu has good selection. Menu states that everything prepared mild unless you specify spicy. This is a nice option for those who can't have spicy food. A dessert cinnamon apple fried thing was brought to the table gratis. Food is very... More

This eatery features the real deal Mexican food and great 'Rita's. We were a party of ten and service was excellent even though the place was packed. We enjoyed every bite from the just right salsa to the sweet ending. Well worth a visit.

We were instantly greeted with warm smiles at the door and decided to opt for outdoor patio seating on their spacious shaded patio. The look I did get of the inside was very impressive as well. Our waitress Tara immediately introduced herself and took our drink orders. There is a decent selection of bottled Mexican beers and a very nice... More

Stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Food presentation was good, tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced. Free shot of Tequilla if you so desire.
