The atmosphere and the service were so nice, and the chips and salsa were so tasty and fresh, that it made it all the sadder that the food was not so great. It was just bland and lacked characteristic strong flavors and spices. Maybe it's because they don't use lard? Or maybe everything has been toned down for the Pacific Palisades palate? Yes, everything tasted wholesome, but that's not what we want from our Mexican meal. We won't be coming again.

Had the loaded Nachos and it was really good. They had a very expansive menu and drew a really big crowd. I get the sense that its a very busy place because service was a bit slow. Despite this hiccup, I would recommend for good Mexican food.

Our food was delicious. We ordered fajitas, molcajete, fish tacos, lamb, spinach and salmon enchiladas, chicken soup, black bean soup, and guacamole with chips. The salsa was hot and spicy. The portions were large. Chris, our waiter, was great. I recommend this restaurant.

Our favorite place to eat when going into town. The help are fun and very efficient. We mostly go to the one on San Vicente. My wife and I have been sharing the same meal here for years. Can never get enough. Good, healthy and interesting Mexican food as well as some other things. Worth the trip.

Casual family atmosphere with consistently good food. The people who work there are nice. We've never left this restaurant unhappy. Kids welcome..crayons and all. Nothing but good things to say about this place. If everyone in your part isn't in the mood for just Mexican they have some other items on the menu to satisfy. Salsa is super yummy and fresh.
