I am usually awry of Mexican food because I can not do hot. However, Carlos's food was tasteless. Our waiter was only mildly attentive. They did not speak to a parent who was letting their child scream in the restaurant. One couple walked out because of it.

Enchiladas Verdi were delicious. Verdi sauce some of the best I've had. Chips were very fresh, unlike some places. Restaurant was clean, restroom as well, and our waiter was very nice. Go hungry; large portions.

We had dinner here last September. We ordered a margarita and this was served in a huge, iced beer glass.

OK Mexican food, with some different Peruvian options. Nice back porch on the river. Average value, food was only so-so.

Shared the Chochinita Pibil and a Grande Lime Margarita. Was delicious and filling, definitely enough food for two! Staff were very friendly.

we ate there with a group, they have lots of room, ate on the deck. They offer some unique Mexican dishes that you won't find in most Mexican restaurants. They do have a monster margarita, probably 32 ounces. Food was ok but just average.

My first stop in town- I was really in the mood for Mexican. The inside was outdated and looked dirty. Food was less than good- wish I would have passed
