After a long days drive from Southern California to Eugene, our son wanted us to take him to his favorite Mexican restaurant in Eugene. The table we sat at, had rips in the cushy bench taped up. The margaritas are very good, as well as their chips and salsa. The service was much appreciated by us, especially since our son... More

The salsa is fresh, and it keeps coming with warm tortilla chips. The poquito y mas combination provides some variety for a very reasonable price, while the fajitas arrive sizzling with loads of ingredients to make them your own.

Seafood dishes are fresh and large. Enchiladas, tacos, all your favorites here are well prepared. Not great ambiance, pretty traditional like you'd see 30 years ago, though.

This is my family's go to place for Mexican food in Eugene. They have another location at the Oakway Mall, and everything I say here could be said about that place - but this is our favorite location. The people here are so friendly, we feel like we're a part of the family. They have good specials. I don't know... More

Very tasty mexican food here. I had the comb, taco, rice beans and enchilada . Very good, rice was nice and fluffy. The service here was excellent. Prices average, although we were here during the lunch menu time. Nice and clean restaurant. The seats on the booths need fixing. Ours was very saggy. Hate it when I sit in a... More

Awful food with runny beans and dried out rice and gooey sauces. Not at all like Mexican food but more like what people think it is who have never had it.

The food is great for what it is, strip mall Mexican food. Its not super authentic and the prices are steep but if you just want Mexican to cure your craving this place is it.

I'm from Southern California so was very pleased to find this authentic Mexican food restaurant. The chicken rolled tacos were huge and so filling...I only ordered the two and it was way more than enough. Do ask for their "hot" salsa if you like it that way. Kid friendly, comfortable and I'll definitely be back.
