“Must eat here when you come to town!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We eat at only 5 places in Eureka, and this one is at the top of the list. KJ's food is always consistent, and when possible she uses locally grown organic produce. It does not hurt that they pour strong drinks either. This is a must if you come visit Eureka.

“Don't go on a Sunday!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

They fail to mention on their sign that you can't order off the menu on Sundays bc it's chulupa night. You have to get a type of chulupa or nothing and you don't even get a menu to say what is on each chulupa you just have to pick from what they say. Chris the waiter is extremely rude! When we seemed upset we couldn't order off the menu he became upset and said "well I don't know what the problem is our locals like having this on sundays." also the chef/possibly owner is very rude also. There was a very kind/friendly waitress here also taking care of the only other couple here and as she was going over the chulupa choices with them and describing them the chef kept ringing a bell in the kitchen they use when food is ready. It got so annoying and loud the waitress had to leave the couple to go see what the chef wanted which wasn't any food bc there were only 2 couples there and we hadn't even ordered yet. The seafood chulupa I got was fair tasting my husbands beef one was poor and the salsa platter was fair but nothing I would go back for again here.

“Perfect hospitality!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

KJ, the owner and chef was the most amazing hostess. She was very friendly and down to earth. She personally came out and congratulated us on our wedding and introduced herself to the whole wedding party. She made sure all 26 of us were pleased with our meal. I would highly recommend eating here for any ocassion. The food was delicious!
