“Nice Dinner”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The food was very good and we were pleased that they offered vegetarian options (tamales, enchiladas, etc.) It was a bit strange that with their sides of beans and rice on their dinner plates, if you want all beans vs. beans and rice, there is a 15 cent extra charge. Really - how many people are going to do that? Just doesn't seem real customer friendly -

BUT . . the staff is very friendly and nice.

Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very cozy place and steps from the beach. I had the Carne asada burrito with cheese... chips and yummy HOT sauce. Very good meal. Close to beach and shopping.

“Outstanding Mexican Food in Capitola”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I've been going to this little place in Capitola for at least 25 years. The food is excellent, big portions, great salsa, and an always nice staff. No fancy meals, just good, basic Mexican food that keeps me coming back whenever i am in the area. Parking is a pain and Capitola can be a mess in the summer, but especially off-season, give this place a whirl. Today I had chicken enchiladas with rice and beans, and it was great, nice sauces, fresh and tasty.

“Capitola”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Love their shrimp enchiladas! Capitola Beach is just steps away. As locals, we usually don't visit during the summer months, but it would be a great ending for a day at the beach.

“Good Food.......”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

When we first walked in, I was skeptical. The place looked a little dingy and well.... bad. But our waitress was immediately wonderful and the food was scrumptious! Good beef tacos and chicken enchilada!
