“Just ok”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

It is a cool setting, inside a castle, but the food wasn't anything special and the restaurant itself was dirty.

“Good Food”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great Mexican food. I highly recomment the chips and cheese dip while you wait for your food. The chips are made not store bought and are unlike any other chips you have had. Also recomment the red chili it is great by itself or on top of a burrito.

“Delicious local restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Unique Mexican restaurant. Excellent deluxe nachos and enchiladas. If possible, eat at the castle location in downtown St. Joseph!

“So authentic you'll be sick for days!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The last time I was this sick from eating Mexican, was when I was actually in Mexico. So... sure, you could say it's authentic, in the "in the bathroom for hours" kind of way. I won't get into details. The food was so-so, service was HORRIBLE. The employees and management just looked at you like you were some sort of burden. I didn't find the environment very comfortable for dining either. I'll never eat there again.

“Neat location . . "ok" food.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I probably would have given this an "average" rating, but it is worth seeing the old "castle" that this restaurant is in. The mexican food for us was just "ok". Nothing spectacular. The nachos are very good and are probably the best part of the meal. But, if you are looking to see a historic building in St. Joe, then you should stop by and at least have a margaritta.
