“Nice Lunch Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The buffet is such a good deal that I have never had anything else. The flan is especially good. There is outdoor dining during pleasant weather.

“Great atmosphere and margaritas.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

This is a wonderful place with great service and great margaritas. I live nearby, and I frequent this place maybe two times a month.

It's a comfortable atmosphere for both friends and families. The margaritas are reasonably priced and delicious. The fajita quesadilla is one of my favorites, it's basically a cheese crisp/open faced quesadilla.

The bar/tv area is more open and a bit louder which is located upstairs, but there is seating on the first floor that is much more quiet and intimate with booths. There is also seating outside which looks absolutely lovely on a warm night!

“Predictably Great Food and Beverages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

We have been eating (and drinking) at this, or their sister restaurant in Tujunga for many years. When we arrive we are greeted very warmly and enthusiastically. Intimate in size it has some outside table service at both locations. The indoors atmosphere is cheery and the service staff has always been friendly, accommodating and efficient. The food has been really good every time we have been there. My husband's favorite is the Carnitas Plate and I like just about everything the serve I am particularly fond of their Arroz con Pollo. They serve a really delicious guacamole. When we have guests from out of the area we like to take them there for their Sunday Brunch. They have a wide assortment of Mexican standard items, omelette bar and sweets plus fresh fruit and salad items that are consistently tasty. The prices are very reasonable as compared to other similar restaurants in the area. They helpfully assist me when I bring one family member who needs a wheelchair. With dining out dollars at a premium we are always happy to make one of the two locations our dining destination.
