“I don't get it”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place gets so incredibly crowded and I just don't get it. It is underwhelming and overpriced. Much better options in Temecula.

“Very Good Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

My wife and I were visiting the wineries in Temecula and saw some great reviews of this place. Great Mexican Decor, excellent margarita's and very good food. The place was nearly full and the service was excellent. This place was a great find for our visit to Temecula. We will be back for sure.

“Would recommend - with Restaurant.com certificates”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We enjoyed our visit, using our restaurant.com gift certificate. The food and service were good. be careful to NOT order specials if you are using this coupon, or be prepared to just pay the regular price on those items. Not a complaint, just a note. This place seems to be in competition with a lot of other area dining choices, which is probably why they are listed in that website. The atmosphere was nice too. We especially liked the deep fried ice cream. We noticed hat he staff was kind to kids there as well, as there were several other families with small kids.
