“Some of the best Mexican fare in the San Gabriel valley!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Authentic Mexican food and a good value for the portions & quality. Service is always impeccable....small restaurant so be prepared to wait if it's a weekend night or if you decide to have lunch. Many regional cuisines plus "the usual" make for a perfect place yo take anyone & everyone.

“It's okay.”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

That's about it. I did not try the buffet, which is what most people go for. I had a combo. They do not serve whole beans, which I prefer, and the portions were small. Other local restaurants are better. This one is okay in a pinch.
