We had lunch here and the bill came to $75 (desserts but no alcohol) for 3. They do not serve complimentary nacho chips and salsa. Spouse asked for a junior nacho plate with guacamole on the side as an appetizer. Long delay in arriving, so he asked and wait person thought he wanted it with the meal, despite his instruction when ordering. Not a good start. She "rushed" it from the kitchen, and the guacamole was spread all over the nachos. Different. My beef quesadilla was excellent, spouse taco okay, and son's fish taco "tasted funny". He proceeded to eat all of it and was sick throughout the night. Our desserts were all good, but the pumpkin flan was the best--delicious--and least expensive at $4.99. Overall, we would rate this restaurant as expensive, overrated, and potentially dangerous.

My wife and I ate here on a weekend for lunch and were disappointed with both the food and the service.

As a first course, we ordered guacamole, which was unseasoned and tasted a bit sour, as if it were made of unripe avocados, or perhaps avocados mixed with mayonnaise. On the plus side, the spicy green salsa served with the chips was good, and partially masked the unsavory taste of the guacamole. However, the waitress pulled the salsa from an unrefrigerated and dirty plastic tray under a waitstand, which didn't exactly seem hygienic. For entrees, we each ordered chicken & bean chimichangas, which were quite bland, again seemingly lacking any seasoning. And none of this food was exactly cheap -- the chips & guacamole, for example, cost over $8, on par with much better Mexican restaurants found elsewhere in New England. And finally, the service was spotty -- while our soda refills were prompt, we had to ask three times to receive our check, though in fairness our waitress seemed stretched between many tables.

Bottom line: the next time we're in Concord and craving Mexican, we'll certainly eat elsewhere.

I've Been Here Twice And Both Times Have Been A Disappointment. The latest time I Had The Taco Pastor Which Was essentially a Soggy tortilla Wrap Wrapped In Aluminum Foil With Some Scant Meat In It and lettuce on the plate. Very bland and tasteless and way overpriced for how little food you get. Save your money for somewhere else.

Nothing very authentic about this Mexican eatery. But Concord NH for sure isn't the food capital of the world. Food was fresh but a bit lacking in flavour. Heavy on the chopped lettuce....not much else to say about the food. Interior a bit gloomy too.

We were taken here by our son when in town visiting and we were hungry for some tasty mexican, and this place hit a blast! We enjoyed an order of Garlic Nachos to kick things off, and as they have two salsas, we enjoyed both mild and more heat - adding hot sauce to get to our preference level. Our entrees included an excellently prepared Taco Salad, a plate of the special pork tacos, and a mixed combination of the special pork taco and a fish taco. All were excellently prepared and served expertly by Missy who kept us happy right up to our trip home. On a busy night expect to wait for a table, and they do have an outdoor section when the temps allow. We understand that they have a steady business, so go early to avoid the wait if it matters, or go by and join the crowd waiting for a trip to Mexican flavor heaven! A good time had by all!
