“Best Mexican sit down restaurant in Santee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food is superior and the service is equally as great. The restaurant is exceptionally well staffed and the happy hour drinks are one of favorite reasons to frequent this location.

“Local hangout.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Been our family and friends hangout for years. Love it and don't really need others to know about it, but need to give them shout out! Can alter your orders to suit your taste. THE BEST FAJITA'S and MARGARITA'S in the USA!!! If you're new go on the restaurant side as bar doesn't have many tables and locals want them first! But if lucky enough to get seat we'll chat with you, enjoy!

“The locals love this place with good reason!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

My daughter and her family eat here every Thursday. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is festive. This is not a place for quiet reflection so only go if you want lively conversation with authentic Mexican food (and yummy Margaritas) I plan on becoming a regular on my future visits !

“Great place for a meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

So glad we choose this restraunt. From the time we walked in to the time left every one was so friendly. Food was amazing, had chicken fajitas and they were the best we had ever had. Highly recommend this restraunt and cantina.

“Place was packed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Met some family members here for a meal on a Wednesday evening and the place was packed, which I think is usually a good sign. I thoroughly enjoyed my Enchiladas and Margarita!! Chips and Salsa were good too, one of my benchmarks for a Mexican Restaurant (I mean if you can't do good chips?...and some don't!). The food and drinks are reasonably priced. The atmosphere was buzzy and the staff were both efficient and friendly. I will definitely go back.
