You come for the chips and salsa but stay for the diners. Solid American Mexican cooking, great flavour, hot and plentiful, you will always over order but at these prices it is not a big problem. Margaritas are great both blended iron the rocks so enjoy.

We were staying in the hotel attached to this restaurant, so we got take out for dinner. They forgot our guacamole (which we ordered and paid for), but the food was hot and the ingredients seemed fresh. Their salsa is awful, tastes like lots of dried cumin, and very bland. Chips were greasy and stale. My tostada was fine, had... More

I've enjoyed kicking back with friends at this restaurant. Staff is friendly. The food isn't amazing, but decent. They provide chips and salsa and don't seem to mind if you sit and chat for awhile.

One of our worst restaurant experiences. Tables in one section were closed. It was full. Took forever for anyone to take our order. Then took forever for our simple order to come. Water glass never refilled. No one ever checked on us. Had to wave and wave to get a bill. Then wave and wave to get them to take... More

Our whole family enjoy eating here. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great margaritas and they keep my favorite wine in stock. If they run out they run to the store to get a bottle now that is service. The food is excellent and always served hot. Great menu.

So I used to go to this restaurant when they were located in the big yellow house down by the ferry landing. This location in the Best Western is better. Tables are spread out, It's not too noisy, Service on a week night was good. Chicken tostada was excellent. Beer was cold. What more do you want?

Greg, the owner, works hard to make this a pleasing experience with inexpensive, tasty Mexican food. Great Margaritas! Actually serve black beans as well as refried beans. Sit in the bar area if you want a fun experience. Locate in a nice hotel on the main street. Plenty of parking.

Not bad food. It was really busy so service wasn't great. I had a shredded beef burrito. The shredded beef was a good beef, not fatty. Hubby had a seafood burrito. He liked it. Don't order dessert. I had fried ice cream and hubby had a peach tortilla thing. They both were horrible. Top shelf margaritas weren't worth the price.... More

Ordered a meal to go. I asked for a combo meal and was told that, that item didn't come as a meal although I was looking at the menu that said it did. She was pretty rude about it. So I ordered the item with a side of rice and beans, no sour cream and 2 guac. I get the... More

We were in the mood for Mexican food and walked up here from the harbor. Almost didn't give it a try because it didn't seem too adventurous to eat in a restaurant connected to a hotel. So glad we gave it a try. Awesome food and seemed to popular with the locals too! My burrito was the size of my... More
