Great food and super margaritas - the owners and management make it a fun place to dine! The sense of community was even more awesome with the Winter Olympics and Kate's exciting luging!

Drinks are great... but the food is blah. Went for "Taco Tuesday" and got all 3 types of tacos. Soft, crunchy and street. Soft was machaca, which had no flavor, meat was tough & chewy, plus too soggy. Crunchy was picadillo, which also had no flavor and way too greasy. Street was carnitas, which actually had some flavor, but meat was dry. The only dish worth eating was the guacamole, but it needed salt and hot sauce to make it edible. Do yourself a flavor and come down the mountain, go to Pasadena and find a real Mexican restaurant.

This restaurant is busy, family friendly, with indoor and patio dining. The new location is larger and more accommodating than the original. Despite more space it is packed. The carnitas are good, the tableside guacamole preparations allows you to get it just how you like it. The staff is friendly and helpful, if a little slow on really busy nights. My family and I eat here regularly.

They've done a great job of moving the operation down the street. The food remains very high quality, the service is great, and the atmosphere is fun. A great place for casual Mexican Food in La Canada.

All that I am going to say is that in a city filled with Mexican restaurants, this is one you want to avoid. The service was not great, this new location already looks tired and dated. The food is just plain not good.
