This is one of the best Mexican food restaurants I have ever been to in Canada! Delicious and authentic (totally the real stuff) and makes you feel like if you are eating in Mexico! Very good menu and service!

Yes, this Macleod Trail restaurant is small. But it's still a favorite go-to place for us. The staff is friendly. The portions are just right - not too small or not huge like Tex-Mex restaurants. The food delicious and not too spicy. Their Mole sauce is great and their salsa is the real stuff (pico de gallo, instead of tomato sauce). We love their guacamole, as well. Note: This is not a Tex-Mex restaurant with huge portions with tons cheese. It's authentic and lighter.

A quaint little place, even with a patio, is a little retreat on the very busy Macleod Trail. Let's start with some margueritas...a very nice way to start! The price for a double is only slightly more than for a single...let's go double. The taste brings you right back to Mexico. Had the Chef's Platter. I'll be honest, I have had better Mexican food but the opportunity to try a few bites of so many dishes was genuinely a taste treat. They were able to subsitute sides to our taste. This is just one example of how the service was a notch above.

Came here on a whim while staying in Calgary and was pleasantly surprised. Had all you could eat Tacos for $14 and was stuffed. They were excellent, service was good and friendly and the place was super clean. Highly recommended for a Mexican food experience!

The food was tasty and the portions were generous. I had been to the Macleod Trail location before and wanted to order something I had eaten there but was told the menus were not the same. ( I LOVE the Maclead Trail location.) I was a little disappointed in my marguarita; canned not fresh.
