I had heard about this place several years ago and since I love a good mexican meal, it has been on my list of places to try for a while. I admit that the fact that it was located in Lawrence MA kind of kept me away for a while.
But we did finally decide to go and I am very glad we did. We arrived at about 5:30 on a Saturday night. We were able to park directly across the street, and paid $1 at the meter. There were plenty of parking spots right there. From the outside, the restaurant looked like a non-descript hole-in-the-wall kind of place. There was no wait, and we were sat right away.
Within 2 minutes of being sat, a hostess came over to read the specials to us. After that, our waitress came over and took our drink orders. My husband had the 'Mexican Martini' and I had a glass of chardonnay. The Martini was tasty, and a bit on the strong side, which is a plus. The wine was a healthy pour.
The chips were fantastic, and the salsa was good, but not spicy at all. For dinner, I had the enchilada suizas and my husband had the special (chicken and shrimp in a light asparagus cream sauce. The special was delicious and the sauce was not heavy at all despite being a 'cream' sauce. The enchiladas were very good as well, made with fresh corn tortillas and a yummy tomatillo sauce. My son's meal, although just chicken fingers and fries, were homemade and plentiful.
Service was great, food was great! I agree with some of the reviewers in that a little spice would have helped. I will go back in a heartbeat though!!!
