“Best Mexican restaurant I've ever tried”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

I go there once a month and I love it! The food is very good: I have tried all the main dishes so far and they are really delicious, especially the Tacos (that you can order in the soft or crunchy version). The service is very good: staff is caring, they fill your glass with fresh water every 10 minutes or less, and at the beginning they provide you with free homemade nachos and a tasty sauce to dip them in (and if you finish them, they will give you again and again!). The location is good because it's in Holland Village; better asking for a table outside.

“Service was horrible, food was even worse!”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

I decided to eat at this restaurant for my birthday after reading all the reviews I thought it would be a great place to enjoy some Mexican food. Wrong! Upon ordering it took about 10 minutes just to get a soda and another 10 minutes to get our dip for our chips. We held out hope that when the food did arrive it would be good, well it took a total of 45 minutes to get our food, and the food tasted like more middle eastern that Mexican. If you have ever eaten true Mexican food, this restaurant will not compare! Do not waste your money!!
