While the location and decor isn't impressive (in a mini-strip mall), the food and service were very good. The variety of Mexican dishes were plenty - our party each ordered something different and we had the opportunity to sample each other's. Each were prepared very well, great portion size, seasoned to perfection and reasonably priced. This is a great place for family and/or friends to have a nice casual dinner.

We stumbled upon this place while walking around our hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. The strip mall location isn't very confidence inspiring but looks can indeed be deceiving. The food was authentic (no shredded cheese here, obviously handmade corn tortillas, authentic seasonings). The atmosphere was conducive to many different types of diners: we saw couples, families, friends, business associates. Margaritas are delicious. Staff is friendly and helpful and just the right amount of attentive. Definitely give this place a try if you like authentic Mexican-style food and drinks.

We love this Mexican restaurant. The food is outstanding and they have the best margaritas in town.

They need to move to larger spaces because the atmosphere is lacking and tight.

This restaurant was so good we ate there twice while vacationing in the area. Margaritas are excellent as was the food and the service. Get reservations if you can -- the place isn't very big and it fills up fast.

Closest you're going to get to Mexican food without actually being in the country. Absolutely delicious food. Generous sized cocktails (from a European standpoint anyways). That Mole Poblano was perfect!
Make sure to book ahead the restaurant fills up fast!
