This is a great little secret spot that is in a nondescript business center but well worth looking for. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food is awesome. This is true Mexican (not TexMex) food. Each meal is made fresh from scratch and tastes like it. My burrito with mole was fantastic. The staff and owner were extremely friendly and served some great margaritas. If you like Tequila they have an excellent selection and make some truly wonderful drinks. I will go back to eat there everytime I am in the area.

We stopped in for an early lunch and found a great selection of brunch items as well. We have only visited once but will definitely return to explore more of the menu. We both had the chorizo enchilladas and they were very good and complemented with spicy potatoes. Based on the menu the variety is not just limited to they types of food but also mild to hot for everyone's pallet!

Our second visit. First time we sat at bar and had appetizers and margaritas. Not bad. A little pricey. Second time we sat- waitress seemed disinterested. She was looking at her reflection the entire time we ordered. Ridiculously small complimentary order of chips and $1 extra for salsa or pick. (Which is about 2-3 tbs of salsa) and an extra $2 for minuscule amount if chips. So an extra $4 for what? Margaritas are all delicious. Small but good. Portions of food are small and to have to pay $2 extra for salsa or pick to spice it up really pisses me off. Waitress not great. Actually kind of rude and not attentive. We are not going back. Way too much money. Will go to el Azteca for value or azul if we want better service.

There are not too many Mexican restaurant choices in Columbia, and this is one of the good ones. Food was good, service was great, location is a little harder to find, but worth the trip.

The best brunch and Cadiillac Margherita in the area. This is the place for the best Mexican drinks in the area. The bartender is spot on and pour is to be appreciated. The staff and owner try hard to please AND THEY DO PLEASE.
I cannot wait to go have brunch here again.
