Locally owned and operated this wonderful Mexican place provides a casual atmosphere, great food, friendly service with a smile, and a family friendly environment on Broadway - the main street in downtown Cape. Priced just right the menu is very broad with selections, mostly traditional but many very non-traditional. Personally I love their soups - chicken, shrimp, and on the weekends they offer pazole. Be sure and try the table side guacamole served by Luis with flair! Yum!!

Co-Owner Antonio is always ready to greet you! Be sure to tell him Judy says "Hi!"

I always enjoy the food, service, and drinks at this restaurant. Great place to eat and relax! It's close to the university for before or after ballgames. The servers are always there ready to seat and serve. Great margaritas! Try "Diane's favorite" salad. Can't wait to sit on the patio when the weather gets nice.

One of Capes newest restaurants has the All Star Service Staff of the Mexican restaurants. I have ate here several times and the food has Always been great and the service even better. Everyone there seems to be overly helpful, even when they are very busy. If you leave hungry it is your own fault for sure. The other nice note is if you get an adult beverage along with your dinner, it won't break the bank. Very very reasonable.

Very nice meal. Wonderful guacamole made tableside was best part of the meal. Staff is very friendly. Food was solid, but a little lacking in complexity and just would prefer more liberal use of peppers- particularly in the salsa. I try to "grade" on the bell shaped curve so your star rating would probably be higher. Will definitely return.
