Pulling into the parking lot I wondered if I was at the right place. It is not much to look at from the outside. Inside it was festively decorated with some relaxing Mexican music playing. The menu items are a little pricey but what they are selling is true Mexican cuisine. They have been around for almost 27 years. I... More

FOOD: Guacamole was freshly made and delicious, spiced right for me but too spicy for my companion. My chicken flautas were tasty, rice and beans good. My companion had the Puebla plate with the chalupa and 2 tostadas (pork and veggie) - all very good but the pork was really really dry. To make up for the dry pork, our... More

This restaurant is without a doubt the best place to come and relax and enjoy Mexican cuisine within the entire Rochester area. It's home cooking at its best. What started out years ago as a little Mexican cafe and grocery store has become a full service, yet quaint and cozy, restaurant. Decorated with wonderful vibrant colors and authentic objects. It's... More

Food was very good, a bit on the pricey side although the portions are plentiful. Our only disappointment was that the basket of chips and salsa were ala carte and we were charged $3.50 for a tiny basket of chips and a little salsa on the side. Didn't exactly go far with four adults. I've been to many Mexican restaurants... More

We expected a Mexican Restaurant to have some Hot Sauce on hand! Not even a bottle from the local store to be had there! Mom's pork was as dry as rope, my food was just awful too! No excuses either, since we the only customers they had, so they had all the time in the world to get it right!

Quite the interesting place. We were in a large party and for the most part everyone enjoyed the food. Most items were good and some were very well done (the guacamole is a good example of this). HOWEVER ..... There are some issues that need to be brought to your attention before you venture there. 1. This is not a... More

Stopped here on our way from Rochester to Syracuse area. While service was slow it was friendly and most importantly the food was excellent so worth the wait. Chicken tacos, Burro Maria and three amigo enchiladas were all great. Will be back.

Although the service was a little slow, the food was excellent. Perhaps a bit overpriced for the amount of food. Will definitely go back again.

THE GOOD; Nice people, decent food THE BAD: nice waitress, poor service; never cleared our plates, took a long time just to get a glass of water, speaking of which... THE UGLY: water was lukewarm, we asked for ice and it took quite awhile to get it....since when do you serve warm water? We came here a couple of years... More
