“Fresh Chicken Tacos”
Reviewed August 15, 2010

I liked this place. I detest greasy Mexican food; this was all freshly made. We went between the lunch and dinner hours and grabbed quick eats to enjoy on the patio for a few quiet moments. The patio is just behind Cowboy Coffee...you go through the back door of the restaurant to pass through. We helped ourselves to homemade salsas and organic chips...complimentary w/ your beverages. I like the tacos because the chicken was "pulled", the lettuce abundance and fresh, and the tomatoes diced. I'd go back for another relaxing meal; we had just come from visiting Santa Fe, and this was Mexican w/ an organic, healthy flair.

I honestly wanted to like this place, but find that I cannot rate it highly. We attended as a group for a prixe fixe meal. Margaritas were good. The carne asada, though flavorful, was a few ragged shreds of beef. After serving the dishes the waiter more or less tossed us each a single corn tortilla to use with it. The salsa selection was nice, but the guacamole dip did not appear freshly made, having an unnatural bright green color. The tamale was a flavorless gooey mass. The flan for dessert was just okay, but was rendered unappetizing by being placed in a small cardboard French fry container. Fell far under the expectations of all in my party.

“Great Place to eat”
Reviewed March 20, 2010

Was not expecting a lot based on reviews. However, we ate here for lunch and loved it. Organic mexican food. It was great. Would have gone back except it was our last day. Will definitely come back next year. Had beef tacos with rice and salad. Salsa was fantastic. Not your traditional mexican place, more like California mexican. Heard that J. Seinfield loves the place and tried to rent it out over Christmas.
