“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a small, friendly place with the typical Mexican fare on the menu, but I always order from the specials, which give me choices I've never seen elsewhere. The margaritas are the best I've ever had, and we always enjoy the flan for dessert.

The best Mexican food in Wheaton, bar none. Best if you appreciate a more authentic taste of your Mexican food. Highly recommended.

“Muy Bueno!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This family owned restaurant not only serves authentic Mexican food, the price is extremely reasonable as well. Whether you are waiting to have some excellent enchaladas, tacos, or frijoles, you can't make a bad selection. Waitresses will help you with your Spanish if you are so inclined to use it.

“Reasonable Cost”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I like the vegetarian options, and the smoky-flavored sauce. Their margarita is my favorite in the area.
