Great service, small restaurant with tables and booths. Glad we chose this location for Mexican in Mammoth! It's a nice place to eat Mexican food. Food was terrific, and the margaritas are awesome too!

We just noticed this place and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is okay but the food was excellent. The burrito was giant and I should have split it with my wife. We both agreed it was excellent and will return.

How this place had 4 stars I will never know. First off, we walked in and there were multiple dirty tables. We were not even acknowledged for quite some time. Finally the waitress acknowledged us and tried to shove us in a tiny corner table. When we asked to sit away from the door she seemed put out that she... More

We were impressed with this Mexican restaurant. Friendly and efficient service together with interesting and well cooked food (I can recommend the goat) gave us a good value meal we can definitely recommend.

This restraunt is like a Hidden Gem as it may not be totally noticeable from the street view, but it is an amazing place. The food was wonderful, it tastes exactly like homemade food, especially the tortillas as they are soft and you can tell they are handmade. The staff is very friendly and on top of everything. The atmosphere... More

Despite the ranking, we decided to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was well prepared and delicious. We tried the shrimp and birria tacos. Service was quick and attentive. From the street it looks as though there is limited parking but there is more in the back.

It appears to be a family owned business. Food was great ... As was the service. Portions were very generous. We ate here three times ... One dinner and two lunches during our week long stay at Woods Lodge above Lake George. Our favorite part of the menu was the Tacos a La Carta ... Interesting choices prepared just right.... More

This is our first time in Mammoth Lakes and wanted a restaurant that was close to our hotel so we found this on on Trip Advisor and tried it. We read the reviews and decided to try it. We had a wonderful experience, the food was great and it was half the price of the restaurant we chose last night!... More

It was a visit to this place during Labor Day long weekend. We reached here around 8:00 PM and were seated and provided complimentary Nachos and Salsa (very tasty). We ordered our food and that's where the ordeal starts. We waited for more than an hour but the food never arrived. We asked the lady on how much time it... More

The restaurant is very small and seems to be family operated. The food was very good and the service was very good as well.
