This is not your regular Mexican restaurant. Don't expect to order the usual combination plates. However, expect incredible service and food! They serve great margarita's and wonder appetizers. It took me a little time to make my entrée selection as I am accustom to selecting...More

So much authentic Mexican food to choose from plus seafood salads. Choose to eat inside or outside on the patio, depending on weather. Buffet style...eat as much as you choose.

The service and food were both excellent. The decor was not what you would expect from a typical Mexican restaurant. Try the guacamole. It's exceptional with the freshly made chips. The server made very good suggestions from the menu.

This used to be a pretty tasty joint, but it's getting more "blah" and expensive each time. Unexplicably crowded, and the flavor is missing the ingredients.

Stopped in for a Sunday brunch and the cafe lived up to all the ratings. Not much to look at, but great food. Both Huevos breakfast plates were above average. Staff was excellent, attentive and answered our questions about the different offerings.

I'm not the restaurant, I'm a customer but traditionally Mexican restaurants do not serve empanadas. Empanadas are from South America while Mexico is in North/Central America.
