“Excellent food, clean restaurant, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised, trying this restaurant out on a whim. It was clean and nice in appearance. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. And the food was amazing. Great flavor to the sauce, fresh vegetables, and overall good combinations. My only slight negative is being surprised at the cost of the "specialty" drinks - which are not printed on the menu. They were more expensive than we expected. So we'll go back for the food and service, and maybe just avoid the high alcohol prices.

“A real sleeper best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

This small family restaurant has it all! The atmosphere is relaxing and the place is spotless, The service is good and the staff is friendly and accomodating. Now for the food which is delicious. There is a wide variety of standard Mexican dishes which are beautifully prepared and presented. In addition there are always special creations. My wife and I rank it as one of the best restaurants.

“Excellent Family-run Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. The location (in Walnut Hill Shopping Center) has been owned by other restaurants before. What a pleasant surprise, even just on entering. The atmosphere is understated, warm and welcoming. Tables are nicely spaced and booths, comfortable. But the highlights are the delicious food and friendly, efficient service. Menu has a tantalizing variety of dishes. Be sure to try the sangria--one of the best I've ever had.
