Not just Mexican but also specialty of Salvadoran dishes. Very tasty. Even vegetarian options of tempeh and tofu. Nice outdoor garden seating with three fountains .. cool breeze. Pretend you're in El Salvador :)

We stopped by here for dinner after checking into our B&B in Eugene. Our innkeeper suggested it. Very cool Mexican ambiance and delicious food! My chicken enchiladas were fresh and flavorful and our service was attentive and friendly also. :)

Similar to a small, family-owned and operated, mexican restaurant. I say similar because I do not know if this is the case. The staff are kind and prompt. The bartender often has offered us a 'taster' of some new tequila concoction he has created. The quality of the food is decent, but the spices & flavors make up for it.... More

Know that feeling when you step into a restaurant and have a concern about your selection? Imagine 8 PM on a Saturday evening, when a Ducks game has recently ended and you decide to stop for a late dinner on the way home and the restaurant you walk into is virtually empty. Two patrons having a beer in the bar,... More

I love coming here on a hot summer day and sitting on the beautiful patio surrounded by water features and beautiful flowers. It transports me south of the border for a little while. The food is authentic and a mix of Mexican and Salvadoran. Not your average Mexican fare full of cheese. I love the fish tacos and the Salvadoran... More

The food was some of the most realistic Mexican food we've had in ages, had great flavor and the portions were good sized. Service was friendly and efficient. The next time we are in Eugene and wanting Mexican food this is were we... More

Absolutely, positively visit this establishment for your "Mexican food fix" while in the area. It has a good variety of choices and the flavors of the food are bursting with wonderful seasonings and pleased the palette of these visitors! The service was above and beyond and we were very happy with our choice in eating here!

We stumbled into this restaurant as we were walking around after a beer tasting tour. My husband have been craving tacos all evening, so we decided to give it a try. It was later at night, so the place was not very busy. To start, we ordered the guacamole and it was delicious! We also had the popusas and the... More

You might as well go to a chain restaurant the food is about the same . The service is poor , they charge for a second bowl of chips . Bad neighborhood saw drug deal in alley by parking lot . Stay away .
