“Food on the bland aise”
Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

The service was good, but the food had little flavor and was rather bland. We like our Mexican food spicier. The bean dip was good and the salsa had decent flavor but lacked the spice that we prefer. I had the chicken enchaladas with verde sauce. It was served with rice and corn. Unfortunately the corn was not drained well and the water from the corn made the verde sauce watery and it lacked much flavor. I would say this is average at best and geared to Norte Americano tastes. We'll look elsewhere to satisfy our cravings for Mexican food.

“Yummy Mexican Food”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

In a town full of Mexican restaurants we found a jewel! LOVED the bean dip they brought with the great tortilla chips and really good salsa! I had a chili rellano and chicken taco and they were delicious. Friendly, fast service. We'd definitely go back the next time we are in the Santee area.
