“We're Fans, Definitely Worth A Visit”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Taking a break from all the seafood and wine restaurants we stopped here for lunch and margaritas. A little out of the way,but well worth it. Atmosphere is relaxing (lots of locals) and casual.

The food did not disappoint, first of all their salsa is REALLY good perfect balance of spice and heat. I had the street tacos (beef & chicken), my husband had the rosemary enchiladas, both were delicious, meaty and the portions perfect. We love Mexican food and will definitely make this a regular stop when we are in the area.

“Best Crunchy Beef Tacos”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Service is always slow, but the food is great! I always order the beef tacos. Quesadillas are good too. Monday and Thursday nights are always busy with overflow parking on the street. Outdoor patio is fun too but can get chilly at night.

“Fun place in the Valley”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Just one of those few places around Carmel Valley where you can have some fun at a reasonable price. Drinks are great around the foutdoo fireplace, which is always a fun scene with lots of different types of people. Good music, food is not exotic, but fresh, well seasoned and tasty. Not too many places around Carmel or the valley where you can have this good a spot without taking out a loan first.

“Lively Spot”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Busy restaurant which is always a good sign and convenient for the quail lodge hotel across the road. We found the food quite plain however and only lukewarm suggesting it is not freshly cooked. Price was reasonable. Dining available inside our out and a large number of televisions tuned to sport for those who are interested
