Though our meals were fine we were expecting something quite different than we got. This is because the sign out front says "Authentic Mexica Food". Again our meals and service were fine but truth be told, everything was about as American Style Mexican as I've...More

Hadn't had a good Mexican meal in ages. Tried the Carne Azada (as per a previous Trip Advisor review) and really enjoyed. Also the tortilla soup was excellent. Really friendly staff with great service.

Great food, good margaritas, good service, and monstrous portion sizes. Located downtown Chelan. Although the bar area featured large screen TVs, they were not playing loud, so we could carry on a conversation during our dinner.

First the good: the service was very friendly and very competent. The margaritas were excellent. But the food was just not good. The sauce tasted more like a too-sweet tomato sauce that might be served with school cafeteria spaghetti than like anything with Mexican spices....More

New restaurant in downtown Lake Chelan. great service excellent food. We had the steak and chicken fajitas - very fresh and well prepared. Sat at the brand bartender was super friendly and nice. Known for best margaritas in town. Interesting flavors such as hibiscus or tamarind. Top shelf margarita was the right mix of tart and sweet.
