Restaurant details
Reviewed April 21, 2012

Have now eaten at this restaurant twice in the past 2 months while traveling in the LA/Santa Clarita area. I went out of my way to go there the second time, because the food was so good. Nice atmosphere, and the waiters were always very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. The menu items are a bit pricey for mexican, perhaps a few bucks more per plate than you might expect to pay for good mexican most other places, but they do serve a separate salad course with every full entree, and the food is first rate. The regular margarita (on the rocks) was one of the best I have had anywhere. Really, really good! Tip: try the jalapeno ranch dressing, I wish I had the recipe, or could find it somewhere!

I enjoyed their ambiance, food and Margaritas! They had some karaoke music which was enjoyable as there is not much to do in Lancaster.

Great staff, but food is lacking. It is traditional mexican food, however the prices are way too high for the quality. I went there for lunch and there is almost nothing for $6-$7, only $9 and up. If I want two carne asada tacos ala carte, it shouldn't cost me almost $10!!

chips/salsa good...but overall will avoid this place in order to spend my hard earned money elsewhere for better quality food.
