Great little Mexican restaurant, great service, excellent food and right sized portions :) we can’t wait to go back

Ordered dinner online, went to pick up since they didnt answer their phone and got no notification from restaurant. Went in, didnt have my order (no curbside pickup as advertised). Took 5 mins to check it out and came back and said 'oh the printer...didnt print your order itll be ready shortly". Pretty poor customer service. Food was average. Wont go back.More

Great place to have lunch. We were seated promptly. The food was delicious, the Margaritas were amazing and the price of their food was cheaper than expected.

This is by far the worst mexican restaurant experience one could fall into. Luckily the beer isnt too bad and there is plenty of tequila choices to numb your senses before ingesting this manufactured frozen, tinned, and putrid food. This does have a decent bar...and is a good place for watching sports, friendly staff, nice mexican beers on tap, but weird slogans on the wall referring to how nice she looks after drinking kind of theme,.,. neighborhood need a good mex and it was good before the old owners had to close due to staffing irregularities ( which dont seem to apply to the staffing of chinese restaurants ..,)More

My wife and I ate on their patio today during the Elmwood Art Festival. Because of the festival it was more crowded than usual but it didn't affect the service or food quality. The server came out immediately with salsa & chips followed by a...couple drinks, they were excellent and she was very friendly. We ordered off the lunch menu and our meals were very good. Everything was fine and we would definitely return.More

The visit there for dinner was a disaster. The food was terrible, the service was awful and the entire experience was not worth the money. Go to SPoT next door, or find a better Mexican restaurant in Buffalo.

We picked this spot while visiting Buffalo based on some excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and were overwhelmed at how AWESOME this spot was!!!!! Clean, bright, colorful, friendly and welcoming. They helped our daughter who has multiple food allergies enjoy a beautiful lunch of steak...fajitas (served on lettuce wraps!). The cheese queso and quesadillas were my favourite!!! I can’t think of any single way it could’ve been better and the prices were insanely low!!! I can’t recommend this highly enough. I will dream of the fresh guac and pico tonight. We all agreed we would drive in from Canada just to visit this spot again another time (soon!!!).More

The service, food and atmosphere there are amazing! Every time we go there! Great margaritas and fun music! And of course, their cheese sauce is the BEST!

We had the carne asada and grilled chicken tacos — the meat was good, the portions were filling and the rice/beans were as they would be in Texas (good!) The chips + house salsa were also very good. Small restaurant, but if you give the...tacos a try you will not be disappointed. Also very reasonable pricing. We will be back!More

Went there yesterday. It was the best mexican chicken soup I have had. Real pieces of chicken and vegetables. It was a huge meal just with that. The tamale was excellent too!

This was a great place for a relaxed meal with friends, we sat inside, big sports screens but these weren’t intrusive, really friendly and attentive staff, we’re not expert Mexican aficionados so tried the house big burrito and a vegetarian fajitas, as well as other...dishes in our group, all really tasty and good sized portions, the complementary salsa with tortilla chips was chilled and spicy, really tasty!More

Had dinner here with my daughter and her friend on a Friday night. Service was just OK - kind of slow in getting our order and in getting us our drinks and food. We were told they ran out of chorizo - what my daughter...wanted to order - so she got a chicken dish. I got the vegetarian plate of a bean burrito, cheesae enchilda and cheese quesadilla (I asked for and got a second enchilada in place of the quesadilla) - which was fine except I had to order sour cream and guacomole because it was not included - nor were rice and beans....usually these accompany any Mexican dish. Overall, the food was just OK and the service not great - not sure we would go back!More

The food was very good and service was quick and friendly. There was a small dog at the bar, but apparently that is ok since "Liz is a regular". Hey, it's the Elmwood Village. But, I'm not sure how the Erie County Health Department would...feel about that.More

This is a small place with good food & good margaritas. They had lots of tequilas to choose from. The refried beans were excellent. Service was great. We will definitely return!
