This was our best dinner meal during a week in Brookings. The waitress was very pleasant, the portions were huge, and the food was very tasty. The BEST salsa ever! It was thick and very spicy, but really different from any I've had before. This is a cute little place and I highly recommend it!

The food and service was decent, but not outstanding. Would probably not eat here again. They do have lovely decor.

We stopped here while on a trip down the coast. The food was very good. I'd never had fish enchiladas so I gave them a try - excellent. Our server, Cathy, was an absolute hoot. She made our experience fun and engaging. Her sense of humor was enlightening and she made sure we had everything we needed.

Sandy, our waitress texted over our table while taking our order, apparently we were a bother, she did have long colored fingernails if you like that at dinner.

A very bland Mexican restaurant with low quality food served in big portions at inexpensive prices. If you are hungry for Mexican food you will be disappointed.

The happy hour margaritas were weak and too sweet, but the food was good and portions were generous. The server and service was excellent overall.
