This small restaurant was super! The chimichanga, salsa and guacamole was all fresh and very tasty! Even the crab soup was fantastic. The prices were very reasonable also.

I stopped by Buena Vista to pick up a light snack before dinner. I was pleased to see they provide table service. I wrongly assumed they only offered counter service. Ideal set up as a BYO right next to the beer store. I had steak and chicken tacos. They were very enjoyable. I was really pleasantly surprised by the Carne... More

Located in a strip shopping center, not far from Immaculata College, this restaurant offers the typical Tex-Mex dishes with something extra. Their molcajete Mixto, a combination of chicken, steak and shrimp served on a molcajete rock dish to retain it's heat is more than enough to satisfy the hungriest appetite. Prices are reasonable and the restaurant is a BYOB with... More

Nice atmosphere, good service. Food is prepared fresh. Excellent flavors. Very good salsa. Bonus, you can go to The Beer Store next door, fill a growler and bring it over to drink with lunch/dinner. Then return the Growler n/c.

Went there for lunch recently. The place was empty, with few takeouts, otherwise crickets. They offer a lunch menu, but the prices don't seem to be reduced from the regular menu. Before we were given menus were offered chips and salsa, and we said sure. They (small portion) were $5.50 and no refills were offered. Oh, it did come with... More

I visited for the first time with a friend and the food was very good, and authentic Mexican. The service was excellent! Two things kept me from giving this restaurant five stars. The restaurant layout and atmosphere were nondescript. Also, chips and salsa are not provided for free like most Mexican restaurants. Adding $4.95 for the chips and salsa seemed... More

My mom and I ate here on a whim when we were in town doing some shopping. The place isn't much to look at - it is in a strip mall and doesn't have much in the way of ambiance, but the food makes up for it! The service was excellent, too. We ordered guacamole, which was absolutely delicious. I... More

You will find the tacos and burritos, but they also do a really nice mole and a couple of other sauces you can select for your meal. They have quality meat and a really nice staff. This is the third Mexican Restaurant to be at this location, and this one is a winner. If you love Mexican food, you will... More
