Very nicely prepared Mexican dishes with very good prices. The Chili Relleno is excellent and the fresh guacamole is awesome. Slight downside is every time the front door opens a blast of cold air hits you. This should resolve itself once it warms up outside.

My husband and I went there on the Friday after Christmas. It was awesome!! It took a while for our food, but we didn't mind at all. The chairs and tables are very unique. The chips and salsa were awesome. I had the seafood enchiladas. So great!! My husband had the burritos locos. He loved it too!! We will return as soon as possible.

Had the daily special and the chile rellanos----both very well prepared. With medium beverage total was $20 for two. Others in the small dining area were also commenting as to the quality of the food. Owner/chef came to tables to make sure everything was satisfactory.

This was very good food. Very few restaurants are actually authentic Mexican food but this food was actually close to my mother's food. You can always tell by how they make the rice and beans. We will definitely be going there from now on! The family was very friendly and nice.

While touring this part of Michigan, we were craving Mexican food and did a google search to find something. This place got good reviews so we stopped in for dinner on a recent weeknight. A local even said it was her favorite and that the food was 'superb.' Upon entering, we quickly found out that this is not a place where you take a seat and then a waitress brings you a menu, etc. You order at the counter, like fast food, and then they bring you your food. The portions are on the small size. No alcohol is served, so better find a margarita or cerveza someplace else.

The chips will cost you and they have no complimentary salsa. You have to order pico de gallo, which is good and freshly prepared, but they have no salsa at all.

Guacamole dip is good. We also had enchiladas and a burrito. The food was pretty good but again, portions are on the small side and we hated that we had to pay for chips and they have no salsa.

They were also out of ice the night we were there so my fountain drink was a tad warm since they had to severely ration their limited ice supply.
