The mexican guacamole was very good. Chunks of avacado, diced tomatoes and chips. Yum! We ordered the chile verde burrito and I am happy we decided to split it because it was huge!

Still trying to find an above average or better Mexican restaurant on the eastside. Tried this one and am still looking. We started with the ceviche which was just ok. They use tilapia which is just too soft of fish. The cips were fresh and the salsa good. I tried the pork verde and it was average. Not much flavor... More

We chose this restaurant because it was easy to get to from where we were staying. We were seated quickly for our supper meal. Tortilla chips and salsa (with cilantro) and glasses of water were brought to the table promptly. The chips were tasty but too much cilantro in the too thin salsa for my liking. I ordered the taco...

Very quick service (from the friendly greeting at the door to getting our food). The meal was very tasty (chicken tortillas with chocolate & peanut sauce). Sounds unusual but was quite tasty! Marcos did a good job of waiting on us!

We went for weekend lunch and the food was excellent. I like spicy food and Pollo en Chipotle was perfect for me. This is a decent place to go with kids. Service, decor, location was just ok.

We started with the Ceviche. It was bland with too much fish and not enough onion, tomato or cilantro. Their salsa is bland but the chips were good and fresh. My son had a Carne Asada burrito which was the biggest thing I've ever seen - and was good. Good looking fajitas. My enchilada and taco were bland and uninspired.... More

Enjoyed our very personable waiter. Food looked wonderful, but I like spicy and my chimichanga with rice & beans was quite bland. My husband's enchiladas were fine, but he smothered them in salsa. The salsa and chips were good.

Walk in places looks great, smells great, lots of people eating. Seated promptly, chips and salsa delivered, drinks ordered. Decided to go for the daily special, chicken fajitas. As I said to my wife before we ordered "how can you screw up chicken?". Well they did - it was horrid. Cooked about 10 minutes too long in a much too... More

It is a family style restaurant, with a casual atmosphere. I am not an expert when it comes to Mexican food, but for an inexpensive, quick bite to eat, that satisfies, this restaurant fits the bill.

We have been going to Santa Fe for years and the quality of the food, cooking, and service continues to decline. Tonight the chips were stale, beef and scallops overcooked, portion of beans tiny, and a request for no rice was ignored. Waitress came back one time, did not offer drink refills or take notice of us at all. Never... More
