Good food at reasonable prices

I had the shredded beef taco salad and my husband had the enchilada lunch. The quality was good and the service was exceptional. We each had a margarita. They were pretty potent for a lunch stop. Interesting building--seems like a former bank building, which gave it some atmosphere.

Very generous portions that tasted as they should've. Suitable for gringos.....I like it hot, so it had to be spiced up a bit. Staff was friendly but hustled around a lot. For a meal= ok, for a experience=not so much.

Nothing special, nothing to write home about. The portions were generous and the server hustled like crazy. I had the chicken flautas and a very average margarita on the rocks and my husband had fish tacos and an equally average blended margarita. Maybe we were just tired from a long day at Joshua Tree.

They really have no idea how to make Albondigas soup! Missing flavor, spices. They need a new cook! Nachos, yuck were just soggy and gross. Wont try this again.

The food was fabulous and the service was fast and very friendly! This is a nice, clean restaurant that seems to be family owned & operated. Their chips and salsa are the best we've ever had, homemade hot & fresh right out of their special oven! We had fried ice creams for dessert that were to die for!

We thought we'd try a Mexican whilst staying in 29 Palms. I have to say typical Mexican this was not. I had the Chicken Taco Salad. Very bland and sloppy food. The lettuce tasted soggy. The chicken watery. Not flavoured or spicy in any way. I had to ask for Jalapeños to give it a bit of a kick. Even... More

We were heading home from Lake Havasu and had to make a stop in this area. We have eaten here before and have always liked it. The Margaritas were great as usual and my food was great. My wife's only request was no guacamole, when hers was delivered it was loaded with guacamole. We told the server of it and... More
