Stopped here expecting mediocre and found better Mexican food than we get in Albuquerque. Friendly service. We arrived after 9:30 and were not hurried through out meal at all.

“Nothing better than authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

So delicious. After being on the east coast for so long, deprived of actual Mexican food I was beyond excited to get here. Of all the things I've tried, I've never been disappointed. Good salsa, nachos, and the burrito chihuahua is great, huge, but delicious. Their carne asada is delightful. They have a variety of sauces to choose from so you can get just the right flavor and spiciness. Mmm. I also ordered the grilled chicken salad one night, the chicken was marinated so well that I didn't need dressing and it was dang tasty! I like the environment, the staff is friendly, and I can have fun in the bar area, too. Definitely my favorite new Mexican restaurant. Also, for travelers, it's easily accessible with plenty of parking. If you take I-95 you drive right past it and it isn't a huge inconvenience for I-80 travelers either. Additionally, in the summers their outdoor seating is lovely. What's better than delicious food, cold beverages, and a group of friends on a hot day?

“So so Mexico”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Always busy, especially on the weekends.. Salsa tastes like tomato sauce, when we asked for hotter they just put tobasco or something similiar in it. So we had vinegar flavored tomato sauce. They do have fried ice cream! Chili Rellenos are good.
