“Glad I went”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I have walked by this restaurant several times. I finally decided to give it a try. My experience was a very good one. We were seated outside and water, chips and salsa were brought to our table immediately. The salsa is some of the best I've had at a restaurant. Our waitress was a cute hispanic gal that gave us great service with a smile.

I had the chicken enchilada, other party members had a chimmichunga and shrimp enchilada. We all enjoyed our meals. The atmospher was very pleasant eating outside in the warm fall air.

There are lots of options in downtown Palm Springs. I certainly give this a solid recommendation.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate here on the Thursday night Villagefest and had a lovely table outside perfect for people-watching. The food was terrific, great choice, good portions, reasonable price and a nice, friendly waiter, would happily go again

“Delicious Mexican Cuisine”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The atmosphere was so much fun - we visited on a Thursday night when the crowd was hopping downtown. I had the enchiladas, and the sauce was very well flavored. We especially enjoyed the "corn cake" that comes on the side as a nice contrast to the rich food. We weren't able to grab a table outside, but it would have been a perfect place to sit, hang with friends, watch the crowd, and enjoy some good eats.

The food is so so and the service slow as I think they want you to buy more drinks but the live music was nice and fun to watch people

“Downtown with outside seating and a singer”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Food is good, but a little expensive. Sit outside and watch the world go by. Pina Colada was good. Service was excellent. Good chips and salsa. Large portions of food.
